I was last here in the late 1990s. Whilst I wasn't planning to come here on Saturday, I thought I'd use the opportunity to pay it a visit whilst the Woodin's Shades was still closed. Passed some rather confused looking workmen on the way in (more about them later). This is a Youngs pub. Ales were Youngs Bitter & Junction & Wandle from Sambrooks. I opted for a bottle of cider. At £5.50, I wish I hadn't! The main bar is a rather dark affair with a few little corners with seating. But the large space in the middle is presumably used for upright drinking for the city crowd. Decided to use the facilities at the rear of the pub and then the lights went out! Struggled for a few minutes to find my way back down the stairs and into the bar in the pitch black. The bar itself was now even darker than before, but not as dark as the gents. Outside were some rather red-faced workmen, with a few gathered policemen and spectators. Apparently a mini explosion had occurred. With no emergency lighting in the toilet, no wonder this pub has its name!

Gang of smokers blocking the entrance who didn't move over when asked so had to be shoved. Generally very rude punters, not helped by overworked staff who couldn't keep track of who was next with one guy refusing to serve anyone as he was "cleaning" despite the fact he'd been checking his phone and chatting to another staff member for ages. Nearly walked out, but did, eventually, get served. The whole place smelt slightly of stale beer with plenty of empty glasses littering the tables - so much for the "cleaning". More expensive than the other pubs on the area. Nothing to recommend.

Booked this place for a function after visiting here many times before and I really enjoyed it. The staff were very overworked and some of them were new but they tried really hard to make sure everything went well. They have a good selection of real ales and also a good wine list and the food was fine. On Saturday nights they start to run out of things so adjust your expectations accordingly. Nice atmosphere.
