Pleasant enough pub always very crowded. Good place to play "Spot the member of a secret society"! Beer quality goodbut not exceptional.

Can get a bit crowded and seating might prove uncomfortable if you are with friends (or indeed Brethren) straining to speak to them but otherwise a fairly standard kind of West End boozer with a few ales on and traditional decor. It's a little bit expensive but still worth popping in for a pint or two before stepping off (with your left foot) across the road.

Bit of a worry when reviewing from the tourist perspective and you realise 5 months have passed since your visit; long enough for pubs to close, and brands & prices to vary. Not to mention seasonal variation. Anyway, it was a fine warm late July day when I went to Hercule's Pillars, and I had a pint of Black Sheep (fondly remembered from some Yorkshire pubs). Tasty, and cheapish for this area @ 3.45. A bloke from Cask Marque was doing a tasting inspection, and seemed satisfied. As I was the only paying customer we chatted about beer & stuff, and I learnt that he had seen more of Australia than me. Cask Marque tasting must pay well. Nice pub, nice pint, friendly bar person, value for money.

Nice looking pub with a decent selection of ales. Had a half of Caledonian 80/- which you don't see too often and a half of Black Sheep bitter. Both in good nick.
