The last time I went in this pub was over 20 years ago, and it was naff then.

So at least its been consistent , as in consistently naff.

You only have to check out the customers sitting outside on a summer evening,
to know how many marks out of ten.....

visited on 29/12/15; alighted the train at Kings X to meet friends in Bloomsbury. 3pm, saw a sign on the Euston road so thought I'd give it a try. What a mistake. The Irish guy behind the bar could barely bring himself to serve me, just mumbled the price of my Kronegbourg. Horse racing on the TV, seemed like Irish 'locals' place. When I left I took my glass back to the bar only to be grunted at. Presumably what an IRA outpost would feel like. I told Mr Jolly behind the bar what a pleasure it had been, which got another grunt. Vile, don't bother!

It is a ‘two bar’ set up. Bar on the left has its regulars on stools around the small bar, stools around the walls, no tables and a pool table. The second, has tables and seating and serves Thai food.

I actually like this place. It is shabby, could do with a face lift and would benefit from new toilets but the staff are courteous and polite, the locals are friendly enough, give good banter and remember you each time you visit and always say hello.

It is worth a visit just to sample the Thai food, which is lovely and reasonably priced.

This used to be where my workplace had its gatherings, I went along twice (I never learn!) dear god, where to start?? Sticky floor, sticky bar, a selection of glowering mono-browed locals and being charged a different (escalating) price for the same round each time! Final straw was when a double vodka appeared in a round (nobody was drinking it in my group) and when it was pointed out to the young man serving me his response was a lightning-quick "oh well, I'll have it then!" and it was down his neck before you could blink!
However, thems the bad old days and now we all drink in the Skinners round the corner!

Worth a visit if you are in the area. Two-bar setup and friendly staff, not too bad ale and Thai food. A slightly Irish feel but not at all tacky. More like a classic backstreet boozer. Worth a visit. Also pretty good in the summer where you can sit out front.
