Seems like my experience here has been similar to most of the other reviewers (well parts of theirs are applicable to mine). I have been in here a couple of times but haven't bothered seeing as most people have talked about the main things about the place, e.g. the very nice decor in the bar and toilets. The beer selection has always been pretty decent when I have been in. It's pretty pricey and I have never had a problem with getting served but the beer in this pub seems to be kept at a very warm temperature. I had a pint of 'Musselburgh broke' by Knops and I found it to be warm. Worth a visit to see the interior of the place but I wouldn't recommend hanging around for too long as there isn't much to the place on the actual drinking front.

Visited last September on a Saturday evening. It was very busy. A bit of a delay getting served at the bar and has been previously commented, feels a bit "dog eat dog" trying to get served. If I remember rightly the various real ale pumps are spread across the horseshoe shaped bar, which makes it a bit difficult to see what is on offer when the bar is crowded. I seem to remember a reasonable selection though, and may have included some Robinsons ales unless my memory is playing tricks on me.

Great historic interior and well worth a visit just to marvel at that. The gents are interesting too, if a little fragrant.

Would happily return. You probably stand better chance of admiring and exploring the interior during quieter times. We only managed to get a seat because someone else was leaving.

Worth a drop by with new visitors to the city. The Organic 24 carat Gold was a nice enough pint. Service has always been crap in this place though. I managed to get served swift enough on this occasion but there were others waiting who gave up and left before getting served. Getting served at the bar is a bit dog eat dog and you need to wave notes and bark your order.

A must visit pub to anyone with an interest in pub heritage and architecture.

Simply wonderful inside.

Decent pint of Landlord and food was very good and quickly served.

Spectacular interior which just has to be seen. Ok choice of beer but service was VERY slow. Food pretty good. A must visit just for the architecture and make sure you go for a piss as the gents are great.
