As others have said - an impressive interior which is in keeping with a number of other Fuller's bank conversions (gents also in good order which isn't the case for many of the small, older, 'real' pubs in the area). Unfortunately the high ceilings and mostly hard surfaces make it very "echoey", happily though it wasn't busy when I was in yesterday so could have a conversation with my friends without bellowing at each other. I can imagine that when crowded its hard to hear yourself think.

Started off with a Hop Head that was excellent but they promptly ran out (whether they had another barrel but couldn't be bothered to change it would be anyone's guess). Moved on to Seafarer which I really didn't enjoy so settled on Tribute which was certainly drinkable but not the best pint I've ever had. A couple of my friends were on the Frontier Lager at a truly staggering £6.05 a pint!

Service was polite and friendly but a bit haphazard in terms of knowing who to serve in the right order, or indeed spotting that someone needed serving at all. Didn't see any short measures though which was good.

All in all - as a bank turned into a pub, its fine and I'd happily go back.

Undeniably impressive interior that once housed an old bank - not a surprise given the area. The usual Fullers range was augmented by Dark Star Hophead which was a relief. Sumptuous furnishings but as lamentable a clientele as you would expect in the City.

Situated in an impressive Edwardian building full of atmosphere, this pub is ideal for meetings (of which I attended one recently). The range of Fullers beers plus a guest is fine on quality. Quantity is another matter however and at around £4 a pint, the glasses ought to be filled up without one having to ask for a top up (this happened twice when I was there). Not everyone who drinks there is as rich as the bankers who "work" in the area. If you want to save money and be sure of a full pint, you might prefer the Crosse Keys round the corner, itself a magnificent Edwardian ex-bank.

One of the better examples of a Fullers' Ale and Pie house. Tend to visit on a regular basis and the food is usually excellent - the pies contain good quality ingrediants and the food is well cooked - the beef salad was surpringly good, and reasonavbly priced. The Pride and Chiswick are well kept and whilst I agree that short measures are not unknown, I've experienced worse in most other London pubs......

Nice pint of London Pride here yesterday, no problems with short measures. Very busy pub but a very interesting one. Steeped in History and Elegance. Saw they did food but did not sample it as I had planned own eating in Chinatown. Well worth a return visit.
