Oh No! Was in the area today so thought I'd pop along for a Guinness. It's closed down and is being refurbished, soon to reopen as "the Conduit of Tyburn" or some such name - described as a "bar and dining room", so a poncy gastropub no doubt - like central London needs more of those. What a shame.

Very good pub, reminds me of a bar I visited about 20 years ago in Dublin, very good bar staff, nice clientele and the Guiness is very well kept.

Had a few very decent pints of the black stuff here last night - although in my opinion it's not as good as the absolute nectar served up in Mulligans of Mayfair. Table service and (slightly) late opening a bonus.

Had a great time the other evening - ye it was busy but had an absolute blast. Waiter/ess service made it so easy. Guinness definately the best in London. Food certainly not expensive - portions are big and upstairs is a little more dignified. Will go back again and again .... lucky me !

If you are in the area and fancy a pint, you could do worse than come here. But it isn't worth going out of the way for. Yes, a big bare room full of suits in the early evening. Beer seems fine, but marred for me as I had my pocket picked there, so beware. Plenty of jostling and barging to the bar makes this all the easier. Pickpockets only have to walk a couple of hundred yards to make use of your credit card on Oxford Street - handy for them.
It serves beer including real ale, so far so good, but not one of my real favourites.

Yup, it's not a bad boozer.

The guiness is good and it makes a refreshing change to have waitress service.

However, any pub that is "themed" is fairly tacky!

No nonsense Irish boozer downstairs, nice restauranrt upstairs (if a lifttle pricey for the surroundings). Perfect for standing outside at the end of a day in the office. The best thing about the bar is the staff. They actually come round looking for people whose glasses are getitng a bit low (even if you're outside on the pavement), take your order and bring it over to you. Why doesn't everywhere do that?

Oh, and they sell the best pint of Guiness I've found in London.

In there for a festive pint last night.Quite an authentic Irish pub serving excellent Guinness. Good atmosphere and have some very attractive East European waitresses. Great (if expensive) chips but don't go for the 'roast special'. Don't allow dogs in but as the waitresses don't mind bringing your drinks out into the street not really a problem!

In the saddest way imaginable, I was overjoyed to find this pub as I recognised it from the comments on BITE and was eager to see the barmaid. Sadly, she wasn't there (or didn't seem to be), and even more disappointingly, I found this place to be crowded yet bare and soulless. Basically a large room - no comforting nooks, crannies, or alcoves - and brimming with suits and Nathan Barley types who barge into you as they pour another Guinness down their shitegapes. About as Irish as Che Guevara doing the macarena at a barmitzvah, although it had a quiet, busy and altogether far more civilised restaurant upstairs (I can't comment on that as I only found it through being nosey and didn't sample.)

Great food, Great Beer, Decent Prices, But the waitresses make it all even better, Good service with a Great smile. I go for one pint and end up staying for 8. And MR. Perv hit it on the spot with Alexandra two words Knock Out.

The Don has lost a great manager in Tony due to a row with the owners but they hired a new Colombian bird named Alexandra that is more than happy to bring your pint to the pavement. I think I'm falling in love with her arse (I mean her).

Another evening in the "Don". My head hurts my mouth is dry and I need a sausage roll. Can't say enough about this place except that its superb. This is the type of place that if you spill your a bit of your pint on the floor you don't really feel bad, as opposed to so many well decorated places. Plate of chips are excellent and the Polish bar lass has wonderful gams.

I live above this pub and although I hate to hear everyone ranting on the pavement, I do enjoy stopping for a pint or 6 on my way home from work. The sidewalk service is unheard of in the city, at least at the pub scene. Wait staff is foreign but short skirts are a plus. Open Sat/Sun for private parties only.

Yeah, top in summer cause you can rant on the pavement and seamlessly order a round of pints. Deffo a fair weather Man Friday venue.

Great pub with a friendly atmosphere. Waiter service even if you're outside on the pavement. Great for Man Fridays.
