Honestly I can't believe some people, I visited this Pub many times as a London most recently on the Sat17/05/14 the staff were very nice and quick at serving you the music (8 piece Band) was out of this world and all was in a nice clean big venue even if you wanted to have a nice dinner with no Music you can go downstaires to the dinner room. What more can you ask for from a PUB. I recommand it to anyone.

Another city centre dump. Went here saturday night & i was relatively quiet. However service was pants & the "clubby" dance music was deafening.
How Greene King can put its namew to this place i dont know.
Wrong on all levels

We had an excellent meal at this pub on Saturday 4 February. Well presented and perfectly cooked! The staff were friendly and attentive. Lovely atmosphere and a Warm welcome on a very cold day. Definitely recommend this pub and one to visit again when next in London.

This huge place always seems empty and it's a bit of a mystery how it stays in business. Although it's a Greene King pub, their own real ales are very poor and expensive compared with the same beers elsewhere (The Abbot ale in Wetherspoons pubs is normally better and a lot cheaper). Somehow this place always makes me want to leave as quickly as possible. Not a bad location though, and certainly potential for a successful pub/bar here I think if anyone wants to give it a go.

Went in to get something to eat but the general stickyness and the state of the glasses (after already having to get a clean one) put us off. Plenty of better options around there
