Taken to this PH by friends. It lacked atmosphere staff were polite, the food was very average and over priced £9.50 for two tiny slivers of cheese 4 tiny slices of toast and a teaspoon of chutney is in my opinion taking the P. would have complained but were with friends who recommended it

Pleasant busy pub somewhat lacking in ale selection.

Pleasant bar but avoid the food. Overpriced and really rather naff!

As others have said, it's not a bad pub, though I'd agree that it can't seem to make up it's mind whether it actually wants to be a restaurant, a pub or a wine bar. Anyway, It's certainly better than the Cos bar next door. That said, in my opinion, the beer is not actually up to much. I don't have a problem with Fullers pubs (or beers) but the ale here just doesn't seem right to me....more of a keg texture to it, although its' pulled from a hand pump. Certainly, The Blackfriar down the road has a far better range and in much better condition. Still, it's an ok place if you need an "all things to all men" type of pub/bar and for a pub, they do have a decent selection of wines.

I've worked within 15 minutes of this place for eight years now, but unaccountably had never visited it until recently. It isn't bad: a Fuller's house that is positioned somewhere between pub and bar. Two ales on handpump: Pride and Discovery, and the Discovery went down very nicely. On a hot summer evening there is a nice space in the (traffic-free) street outside, making this a decent place to drink in the area.
