Arrived about 2.15 and it was still quite busy, got a seat in the little section behind the bar. Worth a visit just to see the Victorian glass panels/mirrors. Quite a few bar staff on but they were not in a hurry to serve or collect glasses as they were too busy chatting. 4 Fullers beers on, we had ESB & Discovery which were both fine. Got the impression that the manager was struggling with staff as he was having a go about all the dirty glasses piled up on bar, and when I told a barmaid that the ladies was flooded and had water coming through the light fitting she just shrugged, but manager came straight over and thanked me for letting them know. Change of staff and it would be a very pleasant place to spend a few hours.

Spent a long time mooching around the area trying to find a watering hole and in our desperation ended up in here. Ale was good and the decor is authentic, but the whole place smells of stale beer, which might be fine if you like that kind of thing but difficult to persuade the other half to linger in such circumstances.

Along with all the other comments on how good this pub was, I can only agree. It was a warm and welcoming haven in central London.

The refurbishment has gone ahead and the property is now up for sale marketed as a 5 bedroomed house at a bargain price of £30 million. Yes, that's correct 30 million pounds, (and yes they have kept the facade).

With redevlopment potential like that it can't take too long for other brewers to cash in and the only place left to get a drink will be hotel bars. How depressing.

I can't beleive I have just heard this absolute gem has closed. It was, by far, the best little local in the heart of London! Very, very, very sad indeed!

This pub used to be a great Mayfair secret. Spent many a happy afternoon quietly downing pints in this little gem.

Alas, after a few hundred years of feeding and watering the locals its closed its doors for good.

Westminster council should be ashamed of itself. The planning decision will go down in history as one of the worst in Mayfair.

RIP my old friend.
