It's an Alice in Wonderland themed pub. 'An eclectic mix of styles', the owners were probably told. Reality is a total disaster, as brilliantly reviewed by kmcs.

Just a taste of 'the horror' - Bet Lynch underwear themed sofas, multi-coloured wooden flooring - striped, jet black toilets a la Secret Diary of Adrian Mole's bedroom, Twilight Zone metal lamps, standard wooden tables and pull-down blinds, plasma screens floating everywhere and a black and white mosaic roof where I thought I saw the Cheshire cat peeking down at me.

The real cats who got the cream though must've been the design team, pissing themselves all the way to the bank - or the cocaine salesman.

Yes,..yes it has reopened,..and its one of the most ludicrous refits ever,....fcking brilliantly cack. You ever see that episode of changing rooms where the women opens her eyes and goes ballistic,..fcking wicked?

"Ok Piers, just to recap, gave us �200K of your hard earned trust-fund money to take over this lease and create for you, from what was a shithole, a trendy London bar, based in London's Blackfriars,...well, said you'd give us a free reign,...and i think you'll be pleasantly surprised with what we've done! Ok, peeking,...ready,........Ta da.............!"

"Tabatha, up the scooter,..we're outa here,........Oh,...the humanity!"

This pub reopens today 7 June 2006 at noon. I'm going over after work. Had a sneak preview last night and it's very different after a huge refurb!

Sadly as of 29 March 2006 this pub has closed

Apparently the landlords put up the rent and the Goose, naturally, refused to put up their prices to compensate
