Currently being refurbished again, remains to be seen if it will go down the gastropub/style bar route this time.

I still think there is room in West Hampstead for a drinking/student/football watching pub different to the other samey places but we shall see.

I normally drink bitter but agree although they try the quality is poor, so tend to stay off it and drink lager/cider here.

Now re-opened. the bar is exactly the same as before which leads one to believe that all the works were down to underpinning or some other structural problem. What has changed though is both the choice (now limited) and quality (now awful) of the ale. Needs to improve if it wants people coming back.

Due to reopen in the next week or so. The outside would suggest it'll still be a drinking/football/student pub. Hopefully that's the case, but time will tell as all the other Gallery/Black Lion/Alice House type places in West Hampstead are slightly samey (though perfectly alright in an average way).

Currently closed for refurbishment and not due to open until next March. Rumoured to become an 'up and coming venue' for the new West Hampstead Square development - hoping that is just a rumour.

This is a decent pub to grab a pint and watch the football on the big screens. Prices are reasonable and service is generally quick. It's a large place so you can usually get a seat or a table. Food basic but cheap - they seem to have offers at certain times.

Interesting fact - upstairs used to be a music venue and Joy Division once played there.
