It’s quite a strange place. One evening you will be served by quick, pleasant and attentive staff; another evening get moody, surly and totally disinterested staff that make you feel out of order for actually coming to a ‘pub’ and ordering a drink!

The décor inside isn’t what you expect at all from the outside. The tapas is very good, but stupidly expensive for what you get. It’s certainly not a drinking pub.

And I have to agree about the glasses, they are ridiculous.

Not really a pub is it? A little bit of Spain in Bloomsbury. We had to wait for hotel check in and despite the tramps using the outside tables as a vantage point to drink out of cans, the place looked quite homely. We entered, presented with a nice welcome and made good use of their free papers to pass the time. Oh, and I bought a drink.

Clearly a gastropub but a very warm welcome on arrival and all the staff were very attentive. However I can't understand pubs that sell wine in the type of orange juice glasses you get at breakfast in hotels. Weird and trying too hard to be different and trendy yet looking a little pretentious in my book. Pleasant seating to watch the world go by but the comedy glasses had already left a bad taste in my mouth.

Very foodie, quite spartan interior but actually appealing. Notable for cured hams, chillies etc hanging in windows. Indifferent Theakstons tasted, didn't try the food.

Inattentive, indifferent, sluggish, poorly informed staff. Below-average ale. Sunday roast served in a tapas dish. Avoid.
