|Huge huge improvement ! Back on the must visit list. Years ago this pub was a fabulous real ale haunt, then declined to a rubbish Irish place then rubbish gastropub. Now it has a range of real ales, range of cask beer and a brewery in the basement, The Bloomsbury Brewery. I shall go back to being a regular visitor. The Bllomsbury bitter and pale ale are great.|

|I think this pub deserves a better rating than 3.7 but I see the last review was 4 years ago. A fairly modern décor to a place with a nice traditional name (at least they didn't shorten it to Percy's or something). The staff are friendly and there are 4 handpumps from their local brew (the IPA in particular was very good). The only problem was the gents' lavatory was out of action but hopefully that will be sorted soon.|

|I remember this place when it was the Rising Sun, a real real ale mecca.|
Alas now it's just another bland gastropub that will never be even fit to lace the boots of the Eagle in Farringdon Road.

|We went there on Saturday afternoon (9.7.11), and were very unimpressed. The couple behind the bar made sure they finished their chat before serving us, but although they had a few nice ales, they'd ruined them by serving them way too cold to taste. We took our drinks to a random table, and the barman shouted angrily at us not to sit there. I wouldn't mind - oh hang on, I would - but we were the only people in there!|
Not going back, which is a real pity, becuase it looked like a really nice place.

|Nice pub, but I agree the bar staff are rude and disinterested. The barman shouted at 11pm that we had 5 minutes to finish our drinks and leave. |
