user reviews of the William Blake, Old Street

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

You could be forgiven for thinking you're in a Wetherspoon's when here. It's a large open-plan chain-type pub, which was fairly packed on my visit. People were watching the Six Nations rugby. Pride, Doom Bar & Tribute were the real ales. For a moment, I was excited to see two real ciders on a couple of handpulls at the side of the bar. But alas they were just for show and neither were available. No real cider is served. Another disappointing pub.

An acceptable bar mainly showing the football. Pretty bland but at least it was fairly empty.

Got a pint of Young's cask bitter here recently for under gbp3 which is competitive. Place has potential but near-adjoining Wetherspoons is stern competition.

Fail to understand why BITE cannot put the photo on this page. Weird.
