This was one of the best pubs back in 1986/7 when i worked up the road from it. My recent visit to the street found it closed. I hope it will open its doors again and soon

I went to visit the pub but found it closed, anyone know when it will open? I spent a lot of time in this pub back in the early 1970's when working around the corner at Thomas Cook, actually met my first wife when she was working there! Not a bad place but many changes since then, not all good.

Apparently this pub has been bought by Sir Alan Sugar who will be changing its use. "Apparently" mind...

Appears to be closed now with the inside partially stripped (no furniture), with no sign of whether it is being refurbished or just becoming an ex-pub.

Think the review that mentions that it's an unexceptional pub sums it up perfectly. Popped in a wander of pubs but wouldn't be returning to again.

An unexceptional pub. My pint of Adnam's was so-so (with rather more of a head than I'm used to getting on that particular beer), and the manager left a clearly-still-learning-the-ropes barmaid on her own for far too long on a Friday evening, so that barside was crowded with punters gasping for a drink while the rest of the pub was fairly empty. Fortunately for all, entertainment was provided by a group of drunken lads, one of whom was loudly talking about beating up another for spilling beer on him.

Overall, not a terrible place, but I agree with the previous comment--it just doesn't feel like a pub you'd want to spend more than a half-hour or so in.

Something about this pub doesn't quite add up. It's a decent pub to look at, the service is fine, the food is ok, it's clean. I just don't like it, but I can't put a finger on why. I think it may be because it is a bit of a transient pub; where people meet before going on somewhere more interesting. It may just be me.

Fairly standardish, gets busy with after work crowd but it's the best 'pub' in the area if it's a pub you're after (rather than a poncey bar)

This used to be a shabby but comfortable pub. The last couple of times I visited I was assulted with extremely loud music and equally loud patrons. I would love to know if it has improved. Unfortunately I will be unable to visit it for a year or so to check for myself.
