It's a great looking pub with a decent outside area for the summer. The staff are also decent.

However I hadn't been here for a couple of years until last week. Used to rate this as one of my favourite pubs in London. Have to say in terms of the number of beers that were off and beer quality this place to me is living off it's past glories a bit.

The beer quality is to me by no means terrible, but not what it was, and no more than average now, which given the prices means I can't go above 6 for this place at the moment.

Fantastic looking Victorian? pub with great range of beers. However, I assume that most of their clientele are in the legal profession and can put the bar bill on their expense accounts. £5 for a pint of Old Peculier is an absolute rip-off! One to avoid unless someone else is paying I feel.

Nice pub and good beer, but as paul_d102 mentioned, a tad expensive. Even for London, £4.70 for a pint of bitter is a bit over the top......especially as a short walk along High Holborn will take you to The Cittie of Yorke, which is both a great building and a lot cheaper at £3.10 for Sam Smiths.

Spent far too long in here last night after arriving at about 5pm. Several pints of Old Peculier and Young's Winter Warmer were perhaps not the wisest choices that early on. Good atmosphere and quick bar service but did seem expensive - however, as I'm not a Londoner I assumed prices were fairly normal for the location.

have used this pub many times and always found it a good place to have a few drinks,but went in last weekend looking for some food.we went upstairs and were greeted with a lovely dining room with good food and some of the best service I have had in years.
