Stunned. Not stunning but stunned.
I rank on the beer (which surely this site is all about) and then the ambience. I can't get as far as the ambience.
I'd give this a negative mark if I could. One of my worst pub experiences in 35 years.
So back to the beer, bloody cold and that Sharps nonsense. £4.10, I can just about live with that. I see they have a Sharp's Australasian IPA. WTF is this? Perhaps compare it with a cumquat (Aussie spelling) cider?
So I switch to Guiness in desparation.
A final half and so I have some blonde beer on tap. That can't be more than a fiver a pint I naievely think, not even considering that I should ask. When they charged me £4.90 a half (ie £9.80 a pint) I naturally thoughh that they had keyed it in wrongly in the till. Cue a rather heated argument involving me refusing to pay, the landlord telling me that it was hand crafted by an Artesan that had lived in the same village for 300 years, and that the yeast was from the armpits of the brewer's spouse. Rather than from some chemical factor. I'll be going to Oslo to drink in future.
Perhaps the fact than nobody has said anything about this pub on this site for five years says something.
I have just got back to find the regulations covering displaying drinks prices have been watered down, so no moan to trading standards for me.

Was in this pub several times over the weekend and had a good time each one. Good food, reasonable prices, friendly staff especially upstairs. Great views from the upstairs informal restaurant. Mad music and dancing on Friday, chill out dancey on Saturday evening. Highly recommend.

Avoid. The ale is pretty good and on first impressions this place looks promising but, sadly, the terrible food and service lets it down.

I've been twice at lunchtime midweek and will never go again. The first time it took well over an hour to get the food we ordered. The food itself was ok but nothing special considering the price.

On the second visit I reluctantly ordered a simple burger and chips. This was much quicker to arrive but it was quite literally burnt to a cinder and inedible. Nor was mine the only one. Every plate I saw leave the kitchen looked the same. How a 'chef' can have the nerve to put that on a plate and send it to a table is beyond me.

The attitude from the surly, stressed out staff completes the picture.

This may or may not be purely due to their inability to handle the lunchtime rush but is that an excuse now really?

Good lunchtime pub. Good food - a little bit pricey - but this is London. No draught beer though.
