Pleasant pub, beer good value for the area.

A touch more corporate-looking than some of the others Nicholsons pubs but it has a wide range of beers and is pretty quiet during the day, which makes this a great place to pass a lunchtime. I would give this a solid 8/10 on that basis - in the evenings it gets extremely busy and often has the sport on which makes it a rather different proposition.

Visited here at Lunchtime yesterday. Nice Pub and Good Beer. I was doing the Nicholsons Pub trail and wanted a Tee shirt "As advertised" the Manager abruptly told me He was not part of the trail (even though I pointed out he was on the Map", had No Tee shirts but did have the stamp to stamp my Map. He then went back to repairing the Dishwasher which had parts all over the Bar and he was banging something which spoilt the atmoshre. He did howevr break off to serve food to a table (without washing his hands!!!!!! Will not be going back any time soon especially to eat. 5/10 for the pub and beer. 0/10 for Landlord and his attitude.

Visited here whilst walking the Regent's Canal from Little Venice to Limehouse. the pub is usefully just about halfway. And a pleasant little place it is. What I would call an archetypal London pub. Heavy dark fittings, dark mauve wallpaper and a bar built like a battleship.

Smaller thgan other pubs of its ilk that we have visited, it had a good range of real ales - eight I think. Being a sucker for a stupid name ( I know, I know, I'm an advertiser's dream ) I had some pints of Seven Giraffes and very pleasant they were too. All of our beers were fine.

Fish and chips at �9.95 was very good value when you consider that for this you get TWO pieces of fish. And it's hake, not the much persecuted cod. Not a vast quantity of chips but after all that fish I wasn't too worried about that.

Would happily visit again if in the area.

A standard Nicholson�s establishment, you probably know what to expect by now. The walls are blanketed by a number of large screen TVs, dominated by football. Kicking out time involved being plunged into darkness at 11:20. Subtle.
Not a bad pub, but I doubt I�ll be back given the abundance of superior choices in the area.
