This place has undergone a major refit and now trades under the name of "The Alchemist" although it is still owned by the same company.

The refit has done away with the TV screens and pool tables. The emphasis now appears to be on food: the menu is nothing special but reasonably priced (for the area). I have not sampled the quality.

Lots of different cold, fizzy lagers on tap. Also 4 handpumps for proper beer. On my visit they were serving Bombardier, Youngs Bitter, London Pride and Hobgoblin. I had the last one (at �3.10 for a pint) and it was in pretty good condition.

Cavernous bar, useless staff and an awful pint. I don�t care how cheap this are, some are still a rip-off and this is one of them.

Large sports bar on The Houndsditch off Bishopsgate. Several plazma screens including a 3-D one and a big pull down screen which is used for the major sporting occassions, and a couple of pool tables on the far side for those not interested in the screens.
Gets very busy when a key evening game is on, but is an excellent location to watch a footy game with fellow supporters.
And when your team wins to get into the Champions League 4th spot you almost forget about the sticky floors, crap gassy beer and 20 minutes fighting in the scrum up the bar to get served.
