Typical Taylor walker place with the smell of brown food and bleach aroma wafting out of the bogs. Plenty of ales on though, as well as excellent portobello lager. Wouldn't rush back though.

Found myself in the at Russell Square tube and popped in as I used to frequent this pub when staying at local hotels. Air condition so its colder than the freezer section of a supermarket, I took my pint out to the relative warmth of the outside seating. And what a pint..... black sheep in central london. Nithing outstanding and nice enough.

Cosy little pub tucked away down a side road behind Russell Square tube. Always seems to be busy, popular with local office workers and a few European language student from the local colleges. Very friendly bar staff, quick service, pub is kept immaculate, Sky Sports News silently on TV. Very nice place to meet for a drink.

Impersonal place to meet friends and swiftly move on. Lots of TV screens and not much room to move about due to all the tables and chairs. Handy for Russell Sq tube.

Unremarkable sort of place (apart from a rather striking pub sign), looking like it has been decorated using a 'typical London pub in a box' kit. Three handpumps - Greene King IPA, Youngs London Gold (reasonably, if curiously, priced at 3.16) plus another one temporarily off. Close to Russell Square tube station.
