The City Retreat, Holborn

visited recently with the darts team i play for.
new management has smartened and brightened the place up a bit ,which it needed.
They have also gone big on malt whisky , with a massive range.
It`s a Youngs pub so had Best ( very reasonable for the area at 3 a pint ) and Winter Warmer , with the third pump not in use.
was repeatedly served my 1664 in a heineken glass which is a bugbear of mine - an unbranded glass as opose to a glass of a different brand if the correct one is not available is much better.
felt the staff /management did not make much effort to interact with the customers , which was a shame.
overall , like the changes and hope it works out .

And another alias , yawn...
most tiresome
anyone familiar with the establishment or who genuinely worked in the area would know that
1. most office developments in the area currently lie
vacant , at expense to the landlords and are therefore not profitable at this time
2. this pub is currently busier than it has been in many years
3. as a listed building it could not be converted into offices regardless

Ok everybody
this is how it is
i posted an honest and objective review of my experience at Ye Old Mitre, both the good and the bad as i saw it.
In hindsight maybe i should not have criticised someone who could probably be quite happily retired rather than working a busy pub , which is to be admired.
maybe if someone had politely requested i rephrased my posting i would have attempted to do so .
I for one though do not believe in kow towing to someone turning up on my doorstep and threatening me , acting like some sort of BITE secret police.
As a result we now have one person using many aliases psoting all sorts of nonsense and dragging the reputation of both this site and his favourite pub , Ye Old Mitre , into the gutter.
