A really nice 3 bar pub which has a gorgeous terrace bar which is a an unusual feature for a central London pub.
The main bar has a good selection of ales, I had the Redemption Hopspur which was very nice plus also has more outdoor seating.
I spent the evening in the cellar bar which had a quiz night (Tuesday) on which was good fun and not too busy.
If you're in hatton Garden, I would definetely recomment this pub

Much improved as the Argyle this is a somewhat unattractive building but with a very pleasant interior and friendly welcoming bar staff. There is a terrace bar upstairs which is a little unusual.

Beers on were Brakspears Oxford Gold, Harviestouns Bitter and Twisted and something called Slap and Tickle. My Oxford Gold was very tasty.

If I'm in the area the Mitre is always my preferred destination but this is a good alternative particularly for larger groups

This pub re-opened on Wednesday February 1st as The Argyle - and what a transformation. It is now a very comfortable well-furnished bar (run by The Stonegate Pub Co) and was heaving as you might expect on opening night. The staff although busy were very friendly and helpful and the product range is quite extensive - including 4 real ales (the ubiquitous London Pride and Doom Bar but also they had Sambrook's Wandle Ale and Redemption Hopspur. My beer (the Wandle) was fine and extremely reasonable at 2.90 a pint!! From what I remember of the "old Diamond" this will bar definitely attract a new type of clientele and good luck to it. (It's a handy stop off from Chancery Lane tube station heading towards the Craft Beer Pub in Leather Lane).

Came to this pub before (by the looks of the comments) under the old management. The staff were rude and seemed rather inconvenienced by your presence. Not to mention I once saw the assistant manager curled up asleep on one of the sofas! The beers weren't great and there was barely any ales on (which surprised me as they only have three hand pumps, shouldn't be that hard to maintain three ales?) So I avoided it for a while.

Went back last week and the place has completely changed. Totally new management, cleaner and tidier, the staff have all changed. They are much nicer, far more attentive and very polite, happy and competent.

The terrace bar (which only opens 3 days a week) doesn't have the same selection of draft products as downstairs, and can get quite crowded of an evening but it is definitely one of London's best kept secrets.

Will most certainly be back next time i'm in the area.
