The variety of beers on offer was a bit better than the Cambridge, another Nicholsons just up the road. However a TV football match put paid to any quality time there. I also reckon my beer was 'off' but I couldn't face battling back to the bar. My wife's Black Sheep beer was fine. Maybe one to go back to on a quieter day

Sits right in the middle of a swirl of tourism. This pub's best function is a meeting point before heading out into the West End. The drinks are adequate.

Nice centrally located pub (righ next door to Leicester Sq Station, so its a good meeting point. Seats outside if your lucky and dont mind the beggars. Average size inside room for 30-40. As with a lot of the older pubs in area, stairs down to the loos can be a bit of a challenge if your +6feet tall or a little round in the middle like me. Guiness and Ales are all good. Lagers dissapointing, always seems to much gas or none at all. As previous people have said, meet here and move on.

Popped in when I was passing through the other day for the first time.

I actually quite liked the place - good atmosphere, good staff and well kept Guinness. Overall not a bad place at all.

Would go back.

Location, location etc. My favourite West End meeting point, but nought there to make you linger once met
