Very average indeed, I visited on a Saturday for a friend's birthday and they had actually closed the bar, so quiet does this part of Clerkenwell become of an weekend evening. Previous visits have revealed the food to be passable and there were some interesting ales on. Prices are high although it wasn't the pub's fault that my pal ordered jaegerbombs all round. Sadly, this immediate area is now bereft of really good pubs when you factor in the demise of the King's Arms and the snottiness of the place on Roger Street I can't remember the name of.

Something of a cross between a gastro pub and an IKEA furniture showroom. That aside I had a well kept if rather pricey pint of Ringwood Best (Boondoggle and Brakspears also available).

Also ate a Gourmet Burger and Chips which was just short of 10. This was served on what can only be described as a bread board. Add a bit of vinegar and you need to take evasive action to miss a Tsunami of acid. Now I stand at 5ft 10" but the chairs against the high tables meant that I was having to push myself up to get a decent cutting angle.

I remember 20 years ago when this pub had it's own brewery. How times change.

I visited this awful pub for a friends Wedding reception,
I had a great night but this was 100% because of the company of my friends and absolutely nothing to do with the actual pub. The Yorkshire Grey is OVER priced (4.75 for a single Rum & Diet Coke) The Staff and especially the manager are VERY VERY VERY RUDE, The manager has obviously got a very large chip on his shoulder and was constantly accusing people of drug taking when they went to the toilet (just because someone takes more than 2 minutes in a cubicle doesn't mean anything untoward is happening) we were told that they had peep holes in the toilets and they could see what everyone was up to Hmmmm sounds rather more illegal than an innocent bowel movement.
I wouldnt go there again as there are plenty more pubs in the surrounding area that are 100% better.

Fairly quiet when I dropped in mid-evening. It does seem to hover between pub and bar but I quite liked the atmosphere. Three beers on - Brakspears and two from Ringwood - Best and Boondoggle. My Brakspears was well-kept.

This is a nice enough place for after work drinks but nothing special to travel for.

Bland, inoffensive modern bar space within an older corner pub building. Respectable and reasonable, but nothing to attract any interest. 3 casks available - Pride, IPA and London Pride which was flabby and unenjoyable.
