Kind of concur with BS - the approach (down an alleyway) leads you to expect more from this place. Though it is okay enough if you're in the area. Not an adventurous selection - the proper Job was about the best of them.

Came here for the second time in November. I think I was less impressed than on my first visit. Ales were all national standards - Adnams Ghost Ship, Sharp's Doom Bar, St Austell Tribute & Proper Job, Black Sheep Best Bitter & Harvey's Sussex Best Bitter. The exterior looks very promising and similar to the nearby George, it is located up an alleyway. But the interior is fairly bland and open-plan. It was very busy on my latest Saturday evening visit.

Just about my favourite pub in this part of London, always seems to be buzzing with a mix of workers lunching, bar flys sipping & the odd tourist. Friendly chat, pleasant company & my pint of Doom Bar was only 3.80, cheapest by far on today''s excursion.

Tucked away down what first appears to be a rather seedy looking lane this place is well worth checking out.
A good selection of real ales. Harvey's Sussex and a couple of Tributes were available on my recent visit.
The pub itself has no pretensions. Friendly with various TV screens showing sport around the walls.

Anywhere else in the country and a big, open scruffy/dirty place like this would be inhabited by a collection of flotsam, jetsam and drunkards. It's got the feel of a pub round the back of a station or market. In London, of course, the clientele are a mixture of office workers and tourists.

The beer's not great, cheap enough from 4-7 when the place is packed but it's not really worth seeking out.
