Ornate Victorian pub. Great pint of Pure Ubu. We visited on a Saturday afternoon when pub pleasantly quiet and very relaxing.

The dark wood and ornate tiling are certainly an aesthetic boon for this pub just off High Holborn. Purity's Pure Ubu was in great form and made 'Non-Alignment Pact' course through my head during my brief visit. The WWI-era scale airplanes hanging from the ceiling evoke Oxford's (Jericho) Victoria, but are more than likely in homage to the major event suffered by the Dolphin Tavern opposite, in 1915. Good, but not great.

There are many pubs in central London arranged this way – long, rectangular, bar on the right, toilets towards the middle and back. The Enterprise bucks the trend with a fussier, more ornate interior décor, almost of the kind you might expect to find in Madrid. There's a delightful drinking area out the back, and plenty of room generally. That all said, it's not a cheap place to drink and can often be found bursting at the seams. 7/10

This is a smart pub which on a Friday afternoon was sadly over populated with shouty office types. Which when you add the unidentifiable music "beats" being blasted out was for the benefit of whom ? (the staff i guess) made for an uncomfortable ambience. There were three ales on offer of which the UBU Purity was in perfect condition. �4 a pint though is a big ask for a beer not much more than 4% but that seems to be the going rate around here sadly. The other two ale offerings were from Sharps including the ubiquitous Doombar which seems to pop up everywhere these days, a bit like a Tesco Metro.
The menu looked interesting and the cheese boards quite tempting. But, to be honest there is nothing to differentiate this pubs from 100's of others in London and so i dont really feel any urge to go back. For ale lovers the nearby Penderel's Oak is a far better option and perhaps even better the newly opened Holborn Whippet which was far more choice at much more competative prices.

Nice pub, smart and reasonably spacious. Decent range of ales (3) and reasonably priced. Probably wouldn't do a session in there but good for a couple of sharpeners.
