user reviews of the Argyle, Farringdon

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Visited yesterday having seen the GBG entry but beers on offer left me underwhelmed, the only three on offer were Greene King IPA (ugh), Deuchars (tasteless) and Fullers Jack Frost which was ok and priced at only £3.50, cheap by London standards and also Fullers standards. On the bright side I enjoyed a very tasty gammon steak with fried egg, chips, tomatoes and mushrooms for just £7.95.
My overall impression was that from a beer point of view there are plenty of pubs in the area with a more interesting selection although the pub was clean and tidy and the staff welcoming. I just don't think the GBG entry is justified.

Its position makes it an ideal after work pub and as such it gets busier the later in the work week you go. Having improved significantly since it changed its name and got new management, it is overall, the best place to go in the local area.

I have to deduct points though because they are pretty much incapable of serving a full pint and short filling happens so consistently and noticeably that it is hard to believe that it isn't policy. Given that they're a bit more expensive than average, this can be infuriating.

However, don't let that put you off giving it a visit. The platters are good too.

Made my first visit to this pub yesterday. Open on Saturday, it was reasonably busy. It's a fairly small pub with garish wallpaper and an outdoor drinking area. There are 4 handpulls and 3 ales were on yesterday - London Fields Love Not War, Ringwood Best & Greene King IPA. Not too far from here to the Craft.
