They do say you should never meet 'legends' as you'll only be disappointed - mind you nowhere as disappointed as I was with my pint in this place and the reaction from the ignorant and clueless barman on Friday afternoon. The other staff have always been pleasant and tend to change pints. The character in question obviously had no understanding of ale and was severely lacking any customer service skills. All most of us want is a decent pint in reasonable surroundings it just seems to becoming increasingly difficult to find that.

Interesting to have missed the legendary Snarling Mallard by a day - and interesting too that another cove had a similar complaint about a pint overturned by the barman. My own experience was much more positive with a smoked porter going down a treat and it was a decent stop off near to the main station and not too busy despite there being egg chasing on the telly.

Caught it on a bad day today - the barman was too engrossed in some Scotch a bloke at the bar was giving them to try to give a shit about customer issues. I bought a pint of West Berkshire's Good Old Boy which was murky as the Thames. All I got from the know it all barman was bullshit about it being an unfiltered barrel. Well why not tell people as I expected a nice clear pint (as do the people who brew it - West Berskhire brewery confirmed that Good Old Boy should be served clear).

No wonder this place is usually empty - if you like ale this this place a very wide berth.

Was an institution that got to a point that the strippers had to use plastic 'glasses' (a la possible fight issues) instead of the traditional pint pot they used to use but now it is The Scottish Stores trying hard to be an ale pub. Sometimes it succeeds and sometimes it doesn't - have taken back or changed as many pints as I've drank in the place. Still you might catch it on a good day.

Its like turning Sweeny Todd's Barber Shop into a Starbucks.... The Scotsman was from the more unsavoury under-belly of London and a regular "Weirdo" hangout, but it was totally 70s/80s London. The Scottish Stores is just another wine-bar/pub in a sea of similar tat. I for one miss the Scotsman, where you could tell the quality of the girls by where they kept all their needle marks.
