Called in to see if is as bad as people say.
It was ok but nothing special. Gave it a 5.
This Randolf anus is a multiuser that has slagged off this pub under several user names. He should be pitied.

Awful place - by every analysis. So bad - hygiene, service, food/drink - it is a vile pub. Outside Victoria...

I wouldn’t agree with the previous reviewer that this is the worst pub in London there’s certainly a lot worse than the Shakespeare.

It was packed with food being as popular as drink, lot’s of tourists plotting up here for lunch and to get out of the rain that was falling very heavily.

4 ales on the hand pumps, all fairly standard choice, I tucked in to a few pints of Westerham Breweries 1730 which is a decent session ale at 4.0%.

With no where to sit we stood at the corner of the bar for the next 90 minutes or so chatting and enjoying our drinks. The service was good, with all of the staff seemingly from Eastern Europe, you weren’t always guaranteed a smile 

As I say I have been in much worse pubs that this, it’s convenient for the station and sells decent real ale.

Worst pub in London? Undoubtedly.

Opposite Victoria Station, and fails under all headings.

Including staff (untrained), hygiene (awful) and beer quality.

They has absolutely no awareness of anyone with a hearing and speech disability and have made no attempt to help. A friend went to this pub with this disability and was thrown out as they saw hand gestures as being drunk and aggressive without understanding that it was recognised sign language even though the person concerned had already written this down on a piece of paper for them to see. Appalling treatment and the large population of the deaf community have vowed never to set foot inside this pub again!
