One of my favourite bars for beer and food. Can get busy weekends so you need to book or get there early if you want to eat. There is always something different on draught to suppliment the extensive bottled range of Low Country beers. I tried two Troubador beers, Obscura and IPA, both on draught, while my wife went for the Chimay Triple and Rouge. Food was superb too. Of the many dishes on the menu that I fancied I went for the Pulled Pork, while my wife had Sirloin Steak. Very good value considering the quality and rarity of the beers. Will be returning in a couple of week!

Great selection of beers, not too expensive considering the rarity of some of them and the location. Food smelled nice but I didn't have any

Awful food and service, questionable claims to "freshness".I went for lunch with 2 colleagues yesterday, one of whom cannot eat garlic. She asked is she could have moules with no garlic in the sauce. "Yes" was the answer followed by "no" 10 minutes later. The menu said that each dish was freshly prepared so we couldn't understand why the chef was unable to simply make a white wine and cream sauce without garlic. She admitted defeat and ordered lamb instead. 10 minutes later we thought we'd better check whether garlic was in the lamb. Waitress looked annoyed at having to go back into the kitchen once again, and there was no apology when she had to admit that yes, it also had garlic (how did she or the chef allow the order to go through?). OK how the steak? No that's got garlic. OK so please prepare one without garlic. No it comes like that. OK so get a piece of meat out of the fridge and don't put garlic on it. We can't do that for just one person. So how exactly is this dish freshly prepared? To cut a long story short, my colleague ended up with salad and chips. The salad went straight back as it had live insects crawling around. No apology from the waitress but lots of laughing with other waitresses - they didn't even wait to have their laugh in the kitchen. My other colleague said her Moules A La Biere sauce tasted tinned. To my amazement, nothing was taken off the bill apart from the salad.

I have mixed feelings about both this place and the other comments on BITE about it.
Yes you could just come here and have a couple of pints, but this place is more
about having something to eat and drink.
The bottled beers are expensive, but what pub sells cheap bottled beer ?? - plus
these are unusual (in the UK) beers. Other reviews have turned these prices into per pint, which I think is unfair.
The basic (and decent) pilsner can be had from about 3.50 a pint on draught.
The food is restaurant price (around 15 for a main course) but is not good enough quailty for the price.
This bar is also slap bang in the middle of tourist London, so it's never going to be cheap, but if you're a bit canny with both your beer and food choice it's a good destination.

We agree with one of the earlier comments about the prices here. We had one pint of Zot and a bottle of Westmelle (which we collected ourselves) and paid the princely sum of 10.70. Another point is that the layout of the pub resembles a school canteen which doesn't really help the atmosphere.
