A Saturday evening visit with a few pals.

I have only been to this Nicholsons pubs once before and that was to tick it from the GBG a few years back.

I like Nicholsons pubs, they are generally older style pubs that had been sensitively restored with the old features brought back to life, their ale choices are pretty good as well with a lot of smaller national breweries generally represented, the Magpie is no different with 6 ales on the 10 hand pumps. I had a couple of pints of Sharps Rising Tide, a very drinkable pint @ 4.2%.

Fairly busy with mainly tourists here for a few drinks and food, though I didn't see any good being delivered or eaten.

Quick service from the bar staff, usual Central London prices, a good place for a few ales, I like the Magpie and will use it again.

A very fine pub.Was made most welcome by Anna,and offered samples of drinks.Having people like her behind the bar is a breath of fresh air.The suits were out in force,but most are friendly and accommodating;they just want a decent pint and chat,in a decent pub.If in the area,make a special effort to try this place out.

I like this City pub and pop in when I can. It's one of the better examples of a Nicholson pub and the manager is a fantastic bloke, the bar staff are also friendly and ultra efficient too. The choice of real ale is good and ever changing.

I've had two occasions when my enjoyment has been somewhat spoilt by the behaviour of rowdy tanked-up "Loadsamoney" types knocking into me and spilling my beer (and not even bothering to apologise) but they're still thankfully in the minority here on a Thursday or Friday night. I prefer to drink here earlier in the week when it's less rammed.

In the hot weather you can enjoy your beer with a bit more space outside in the street without anyone minding.

Came in on a Thursday evening with 2 colleagues from work.

Pub was rammed but we only waited 5 minutes for a drink.

10 pumps with 10 different ales in this excellent Nicholson's pub. I had 2 pints of London Porter from the Red Squirrel Brewery and it was excellent.

The majority of the clientele were office workers / bankers. Atmosphere was very friendly, service was good and attentive.

All in all a quality little pub.
