|Although it's some time since I last frequented this pub, I could recommend the interior as being particularly interesting with its high vaulted ceiling and long bar. It's used by legal eagles from the Law Courts and affiliated buildings in the area and does get quite crowded during the evenings.|
The killer though is Sam Smith's beer which must be the most watery brew ever concocted outside of Allied Breweries even though the the pumps claim the usual range of ABV.
The big plus is, as with all Sam Smith's pubs, there's no trashy noise coming from speakers, meaning it's great for conversation and it's free from the disreputable pond life that infests the Wetherspoons outlets.

|Part hotel lobby, part medieval 'bierkeller', why are so many of London's best pubs wasted on ‘The City’ and the people who work there? A high vaulted ceiling, discreet snugs, leaded came glass-work, Gothic touches... but why so bright? It's Sam Smiths, which means it's both cheap and distinctive in flavour. 8/10|

|A few years since I was last in here. Tonight the OBB was in good form and the steak in OBB meal was excellent quality and value. Staff were friendly and very helpful. Relaxing atmosphere with many fewer of the loud, verbose, attention-seeking City types who infest many nearby pubs. 10/10.|

|An essential stop off and unlike most pubs in the City of London, it is open on a Saturday. The drawback is the choice which is limited to Sam Smith's - decent enough and cheap - but supremely uninteresting. The interior is magnificent albieit not as old as it looks and it would have been regarded as a theme pub in its day|

|If I had reviewed this pub prior to last night, I would have given it the highest marks, but after a situation one of my friend's had there last night, I will never go there again.|
My friend ordered a cider and when he came back to the table realised he had been given a lager. He went back to get the drink that he had ordered where the staff and the manager told him no in no uncertain terms would they switch the drink and that it wasn't their fault.
We were a large group out for a session so we went somewhere else (The Lamb on Lamb Conduit Street. Fantastic place) and spent the money on our 5 rounds there instead.
Interesting looking down at some of the other reviews, other people have experienced similar treatment.
I feel sorry for the staff there. It must be unpleasant walking around being so angry that you can't provide even the semblance of decent customer service.
