I went to this pub yesterday, as I was visiting friends in the area. I was looking for a pub to have a relaxing drink and read my paper. I ordered a Doom Bar from a very disinterested barman. althought this appears to be a place predominantly for eating you can just sit down and have a drink. I really felt the whole atmosphere was stuffy and pretentious. Where the fact I was having a beer and reading a paper @ 12.30 made me some kind of social pariah.
I'm not from this part of London, so maybe i caught it on a bad day, but if i was in the same situation in the future. Then this is not a place I would look to frequent (shame given the location).

This place is in a fantastic location and it is a massive shame that it isnít a nice old boozer rather than a pretentious cafť/bar. The barman was slightly snooty and my Pride was barely drinkable, but I stayed to finish it as the patio area by the canal is fantastic. Guinness, Stella and some premium lagers are also available, but the other customers seemed to all be drinking coffee which was quite pungent. There is a plasma screen on the wall above an impressive contemporary open fire.

This is the sort of place Iíd take the wife for lunch on a nice summerís day and not the sort of place Iíd go for a beer.

Has anyone been in here for a while? I haven't been in for a couple of years because, like the other reviewers, I experienced such shockingly arrogant and slow service that I vowed never to return. That said, it's a damn good spot, so we can always pray for better. Seems to be owned by a restaurant group now according to their website. Doesn't bode well that beer is listed with snacks (cf all other drinks having their own section), though it does mention HSB along with Pride.
