One of the better pubs in the area, although the refurb has made it feel a bit gloomy. Quite roomy, so suitable for leaving-dos and office drinks...tends to be busy on Friday nights

I can well imagine this as a classic Youngs pub of old, tucked away down its little side street. I think some folk are being fair when they note the refurb has perhaps not done it any favours and whilst I'm not for everything being pickled in aspic, you have to marvel at the way much of the Youngs estate has gone. Still, that said, my pint was perfectly acceptable and the place was certainly busy with a well-healed crowd. Some of whom would benefit from a crash course in pub etiquette. You do not march up to the bar, card in hand, and on arriving immediately bark out your order to the bar staff whilst the person they are serving is making their choice.

Not been here but to add to the previous two posts how about the Grapes in Wandsworth.

@malo66 Agreed except I'd add to The Lamb, the Calthorpe Arms, Grays Inn Road

I concur with most people here who can remember when this was a great classic 'Young's' pub. Why oh why have the brewery wrecked it? There is still one decent Youngs pub in inner London and that is the Lamb in WC1.
