Have always managed to miss this place but finally went in there last Saturday - very, very quiet - strange as all the surrounding bars were rammed. Good for one I suppose if you really need to sit down for a bit and need some peace and quiet - not my usual Saturday night.

One word : Avoid! This bar is sterile. Hops! pretends to be a sports bar by putting a few sports pictures on the wall and having a couple of well positioned TV screens. However, do not be fooled as we were. They do SHOW the football, as advertised outside, but not with any commentary. The football is accompanied by loud and cheesy R&B songs! Very distracting. When we asked for the sound on TV to be put on, we were told by an very arrogant goatee'd manager that the TV sound was only for international matches. What? How bizarre. At least the bar staff looked embarassed about it. The bar was almost empty and emptied further as we promptly left.

The venue itself isn't the best as it's bland. Having said that, the staff are usually very pleasant and happy hour is worth a visit for a very cheap drink. However, don't ask for a plaster unless you want to see a barmaid shrug and then run away in distress. It was a very small cut...

There is still no real ale here, but Tetleys Extra Cold, Carlsberg, Carlsberg Extra Cold, Tuborg, Guinness and Dry Blackthorn Cider are all available. After asking for a Carlsberg I was confronted with the ultimate trendy bar question “would you like regular or extra cold”. After some soul searching I opted for the regular which came out of the tap a little lively so the manager proceeded to top it up with extra cold. I’m still none the wiser to the point of having the same lager behind the bar coming out at different temperatures. Maybe if these bars would concentrate a little more on giving a full pint I wouldn’t be moaning so much.

I think that the manager has either been on one of those corporate customer service courses or he has worked in menswear, but to give him his dues he is very efficient.

There are a couple of large plasma screens and a smaller one for showing the sports and there is also a pool table. There is also some outside seating around the sides of the building on the pavements.

To be honest this isn’t that bad a place for a trendy younger drinkers bar and if I was up town with a group of mates it would be an ideal starting point, but I wouldn’t wish to end the night here.

Reasonably busy and noisy, but much less so than many other bars in and around Covent Garden. Polish Okocim on tap, but no real ale.
