Meant to say it wasn't rammed with drunken oafs.

NZ themed bar with a full range of Speights and Steinlager on tap for the lager drinker. Rather surprisingly for an antipodean bar it was rammed with drunken oafs. Rather it was quite empty despite a Champs League game showing on the wall mounted flatscreen. The bar was quite bright and lacked the cosiness of some of the other pubs in the area. The wine bar upstairs was much more crowded with (as one would expect in the area) legal types.

Since it was the only pub I found in the immediate vicinity showing sport then it does have that to attract but there are better options nearby.

This is an antipodean cellar bar that hasnít gone down the Walkabout route by pandering to the drunken yoof of London.

Unsurprisingly, there are plenty of plasma screens for rugby and cricket etc and I noticed a full Speights range behind the bar.

This wouldn't be my pub of choice in the area, but I'll be imforming my Kiwi pals about its existence - although they probably know of it already.

Very well kept Speights, and as said the full range, which is very good news.

It always seems very quiet though, a bit like drinking in someone's living room. Don't know why but this place never seems to work as a bar (it's gone through several different identities down the years). Do hope it does well but think it may struggle judging by how quiet it seems to be.

The full Speights range on tap!
What more can you ask for in a pub in the UK?
Had a nice evening there introducing some non-kiwis to what real beer tastes like.
And isn't a tacky pub like walkabouts.

1 cute barmaid too :)

Great place to stop for a beer and watch the rugby. People seemed quite civilized, bit of a novelty for antipodeans!
