|Another pub in the Euston area that was a first visit for me a few Saturday nights ago.|
Old style pub with no television or juke box but it was still busy with a fair few camra / beer geeks in (including me!)
Great range of beers dispensed directly from the barrels behind the bar, the pint I had was excellent.
Friendly bar maid, good atmosphere and now I’ve been I will be going back

|Visited for the first time recently, really impressed with the huge range of beers (16?) and ciders 11.|
The Old Rosie was on top form. All in all a proper old boozer, will certainly be back.

|The Bree Louise used to be my favourite London pub. The selection of beers was extensive, all exceptionally well kept and served by a wide number of cheery and enthusiastic staff. It wasn't the most glamorous of pubs but it was warm and cosy, plus you could always reserve a table if you were bringing a few people with you.|
I was in there last night (15th August) and for the third time in a row over about 6 months I have the same complaints: beer quality and staff interaction.
The pub appears to have had a bit of a refurb as it isn't as dingy as it has been, and it didn't smell as horrible as it has done in the past 12 months. The beer selection is still exceptional and one continuing and welcome problem is how to choose which beer to drink.
But the staff are mostly surly and I often feel I'm intruding when I approach the bar. There were two clear exceptions last night but that still left three visits to the bar when I felt I should apologise for interrupting their chat.
The quality of the beer is falling rather too steadily. The cask beer is always flat and that shouldn't be the case unless its been poorly kept (eg over-venting or warm temperature). On the contrary, the handpumps are often over-gassy causing countless top-ups before getting anywhere near the full glass (possibly insufficient venting?).
Last night, one beer was most definitely off with a cloudy appearance, vinegary smell and sour taste, yet I was told by two members of staff that it was perfectly drinkable. It wasn't.
I like the 50p off for CAMRA members but I would happily pay 50p MORE for a pint that was in tip-top condition as I prefer value for money to cheap prices.
I've given the Bree Louise two more chances when I didn't want to go back there but I'm not going to return again. It simply isn't worth risking an unenjoyable drinking experience anymore.

|Appalling service, horrid environment, occasional nice beer. The staff will often ignore you at the bar, then charge you randomly varying amounts for the same round. The toilets are dark, dirty and unhygienic. And avoid the landlord at all costs. There are some nice beers sometimes, and the pies are good, but they are not worth braving the horrible setting for. Avoid.|
