It's certainly not closed anymore and was very busy when I arrived here last Wednesday to meet a friend for a few beers, the 12 taps busting with 10 ales and 1 cider, all drinks served in either 1/3’s or 2/3’s.

Music playing softly and busy with what was an after work crowd, the manager and female bar person were both very friendly and receptive to letting try before you buy, with such a varied selection this is certainly worthwhile.

I mixed my drink sizes between both 1 and 2/3’s and worked through the Five Point Five Point Pale Ale @ 4.4%, Mondo Brewery Kemosabe IPA @ 6.4%, Sambrook's excellent Battersea Rye @ 5.8% (this was the best of the lot) and the coffee flavoured Weird Beard Black Perle @ 3.8%. All ales extremely well kept and at the right temperature.

The Arbitrager is quite small inside and once you have a seat or standing place you don’t want to give it, there’s a nice relaxed atmosphere here and the ales are excellent. I was tempted here by my pal who visits quite often and raves about it, he’s not wrong…’s well worth an hour or so of your life.

Down a narrow cobbled street behind the old Stock Market building before they moved to St Pauls - hence its name. This is the sort of place where you go and not be found, if you are looking not to be found! Guinness... plain and simple!

Now on the face of it, this pub is not anything special; quite the opposite in fact. Its been under renovation for many years now and yet they haven't quite managed to finish anything off (if indeed anything was started in the first place).

Only Guinness is served draught upstairs - I believe lager may be on tap downstairs, but I have never seen a pint being pulled down there, so this is supposition only. That said, the Guinness is still very well kept and poured. Rarely will you have to wait to get served, as more often than not you will be the only paying customers in the place. Though there will no doubt be an assortment of gentleman hanging around that would not look out of place in Guy Ritchies next flick (I'm assuming this will be something to do with London gangsters. If it turns out to be a a big screen version of My Little Pony, please ignore my last statement).

In the bowels of the place there is a reasonably good pool table and, most crucially, a dart board. It could do with a fixed oche, as the rubber mat does tend to creep forward. Manys a time that I have started off from 7' 9"1/4 and ended up placing the darts into the board before I notice that the mat has moved. Strangely I still manage to score 26 or 41 from the shorter distance.

I'm hoping that, much like an episode of Grand Designs, that it will all come together right at the last minute and we'll end up with a sparkly new pub that retains all its original charm. I will not be holding my breath though. For now, why not pop in and sample a very good Guinness and imagine what the place could be like.

Afraid stilkl very dirty and not looked after at all but the beer is indeed good- no room to swing a cat.
