|A popular pub just a short stroll from Leicester Square, it’s a traditional street corner boozer that was full to capacity on a recent Thursday evening visit, with little standing room never mind anywhere to sit. The barman was unusual being of Oriental extraction and having a Mohican haircut and lots of body piercings (not that any of those are especially unusual in themselves, but it’s an unusual combination).|
The main bar area has old wooden boards on the floor and a continuous run of windows that run along two sides right around the corner. There are a few tables and chairs around the perimeter and some high stools at the bar, but otherwise seating options are fairly limited. Plenty of wooden shelves and an old brick arch formed a backdrop to the bar and there was a large mirror at one end. I believe there may have been further seating upstairs, although we did not investigate this.
The menu looked to be a typical “pub grub” affair with various jackets, omelettes and salads to choose from as well as a good selection of sandwiches. Most of the mains were around the £5 - £6 mark which seems reasonable given the location, but we didn’t sample anything so can’t comment on the quality.
Beers on tap were a little disappointing with just Summer Lightning and London Pride. A further two pumps were unused. Ciders fared slightly better, although the choice was still fairly uninspiring - Strongbow, Magners Golden Draught and Symonds Founders Reserve.

|I intended to come to the pub for a pint with friends but ended up staying and having about 3 or 4.|
I havent been in here for a few years but nothing seems to have changed - Staff are friendly, beer is good and dare I say it not too over priced for the area (£4.10 for a Guinness).
Will definitely be returning in a few weeks when I may sample the food!

|Average pub on the edge of Chinatown and seconds away from Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square. It was reasonably busy on my Wednesday evening visit. There are 2 rooms downstairs and a much quieter room upstairs. Drinkers were spilling out to the alleyway outside. Pride and Bombardier were the 2 ales on offer, with a third handpull unclipped. Didn't find anything particular to recommend this pub. Just an average West End boozer, with prices to match.|

|A real gem for central London .... a proper pub with real people as customers and staff. My first time there was the other night (went for the comedy upstairs) and arrived a little early so sat at a table and had some food. The food is unpretentious and good value, the beer (TT Landlord) well kept and the atmosphere was such that I would definitely go there again rather than one of the noisy tourist traps that surround the area. Gave this place 8 - might have gone to 9 but reserve that high a score for repeat visits|

|Decent boozer which hasn't anything to recommend other than it was 'decent'. Sat upstairs and supped the only beer available which was London Pride - I noticed Hobgoblin was on as we left. Just improve the beer range a little bit....|
