In all fairness I don't know what has been done with this pub . 4 years ago it could arguably be in top ten worse pubs in London but have been in there 10-20 times in last year and there is a really good vibe in there . Long gone are the dodgy regulars and terrible tension in the air . There is always a good atmosphere and never any trouble inside . The management and bar staff are extremely friendly and helpful and has a decent beer selection although no real ale . It has a big student vibe which I know can be off putting to some people and can get quite busy at night hence it's late liscence . If u like sport they have a good crowd in for football , cricket , golf , American football etc . If your young and like to party u should definitely have a look .

Despite the exterior, not really a pub � a single large room with sofas around the wall. Young studenty/backpacking clientele. Live music with an open mic.

I must say this pub has been transformed since my last visit. I recently moved back into the area and as the pub has come under new management it has transformed. The bar staff are friendly and up for chatting to the customers, and it has a varied range of customers, more students and young professionals. The new owner has done his best to turn this place around and it is now a pleasant place to go for a drink in the evening.

A genuinely unpleasant pub. It seems to rely on having the latest licence in the area and a dribble of punters from the hostel upstairs (I would feel for anyone who was unfortunate enough to have this place as their first taste of British hospitality). The locals verge on being openly threatening to outsiders and the last two times I have been in here (admittedly both post 1am at the weekend) there has been a fight. Beer selection is extremely poor too, the best bet being bottled Tyskie. Avoid at all costs unless you REALLY want one more beer and even then, keep your wits about you.

I left this pub after standing at the bar being ignored by the barmaid for a couple of minutes.

Staropramen, Hoegarden and a limited standard draught selection is available and there is a plasma screen and pool table. I didn�t spot any sport ads and the music was playing through some cheap tinny speakers giving this place a feel of a Student Union bar rather than a pub.

A half arsed attempt at running a pub and I�ll not be encouraging them by visiting again.
