This is a large pub and it was always going to be difficult to refurbish it in a way that made it cosy/welcoming, but I think the new owners have done a great job. They've created smaller areas, kept the dartboard and locals, while appealing to a wide range of new people who wouldn't have gone in in its previous incarnation. I like that it has a good mix of people, some there to drink and some there for food, and everyone seems to coexist well.

I like that they are dog friendly, the food and wine list is good and personally I don't see why you can't play Sinatra or jazz just because you're opposite Topps Tiles and a storage depot on the south circular! Lots of candles lit at night and comfy sofas. A good example of how to do a pub up without losing its charm.

Shepherd Neame have refurbed the place inside and out. Playing jazz/ Frank Sinatra last time I went at lunchtime. Music choice did'nt suit the place at all considering it is facing a warehouse on the South Circular. Cask ales were good not brilliant and bloody pricey at nearly £4.00 a pint. Bar staff were ok. I'll stick to the Capitol for now.

I went to see Kenny Thomas - the big 90's UK soul star & Angie Brown. It was a fantastic night out with excellent DJ's and a great atmosphere. All for only £15.
I see they have Caron Wheeler from Soul to Soul next month and then Aswad.
This pub is absolutely great.

Excellent pub . I can’t sing enough praises after attending an event with Winston Ready and Carol Thompson. The crowd were great and the owner Pam and her partner were so welcoming.
If you are ever in the area I recommend that you pop in as all the bar staff are lovely and there really is something for everyone!

"Spoke to the manager who tells me that every month end there are live artitis appearing...."

Well, I'm not going there! I don't want to risk contracting artitis!
