First visit was on a Friday lunchtime and to be honest the place was rather soulless. 3 people having a drink and a group of Italian's ordering lunch who along with the 2 bar staff were the only people in the pub.

Downstairs bar with an upstairs dining room.

3 pumps on the bar that were dispensing 2 ales...Black Sheep Best Bitter & Wells Bombardier....European lagers on offer were Estrella, Beck's Vier, Stella, Kroenberg & Staropramen.

Background music playing, bog standard decoration and that's about it...really not much to report and in my opinion not really worth a visit...pleasant enough but that's it.

Visited this pub yesterday and won't rush back. Three handpumps but only one beer on - Bombadier was lifeless and barely drinkable. There are better pubs in the area

I say long may this survive...there are scarcely any pubs in the immediate vicinity and the Rose and Crown fills a gap pretty adequately. With Spitfire, Pride and Greene King IPA on tap (Sept 28 2009) is a decent selection if not the most imaginative.

Went there last Sunday before the SuperBowl XLIII showing at the Hard Rock Cafe. Surprisingly packed for those that were not attending the padded girls chasing pig-skin (sorry to all those offended). That said, whether an international crowd is one that you are looking for is open to each person's preference, but being in the nexus of Piccadilly, Park Lane, Hyde Park Corner & HR Cafe, means that this is somewhat inenvitable.

The staff were pleasant enough and - indeed - the American gentleman that runs it is quite comical, if it is not evident that he does anything of use (might have been his night off). The rest of the staff are enthusiastic enough it a little sloppy, overun and clearing up seems to be something forgotten about at times.

Unlike other pubs that I have reviewed, this place is souless. It does not have the charm and character of others (e.g. Churhchill Arms, even if I didn't like it or the Red Lion off Jermyn Street), which for me means that it could be any other pub in any area of London. That said, it is easy to miss and if small in size , which makes it a little better than others. There's just nothing extraordinary about it!

Beers-wise it is not too bad, but far too generic. Go to if you're in the area and can't be bothered to walk anywhere else

my experience of this pub is positive - a surprisingly good pub considering it's location, where most of the pubs tend to be soulless, I thought the service was very friendly and helpful, they had good beer on draft and a quiz machine.

All in all , a nice surprise.
