This bar has now closed after almost twenty years of trading. RIP

This has to go down as one of the smallest pubs in England. I deal only if you are waiting on a train or meeting someone at the station.

Been here every now & then over the course of about 5 years or so. It's a bit small...but probably better than the JDW on the concourse, given the choice I'd go here every time.

It's not bad as train station pubs alright place to wait if you're meeting someone or waiting for the trains to sort themselves out after another day of delays, delays, delays...

There was a bit of chaos on the trains one evening recently and I was presented with a delay of unknown duration but looking likely to be reasonably short. Not wanting to leave the station concourse and unable to face the JDW upstairs I dropped in on the Mash Tun.

The interior is tiny although there are a few tables out on the concourse. Clientele were mainly seedy looking businessmen unble to face the journey home and domestic evening without some fortification as well as a few people like me killing time until the trains got sorted.

The only pump was Pride although there were two not in use (seems to be a theme in station pubs).

The Mash Tun has a few small advantages - it is tolerably clean, not the JDW and is near to the platforms. It is not quite as depressing as the Oast House in London Bridge or Boadicea in Charing Cross but is still a crappy station pub that is suitable only those with train delays.

Yes, I agree, it is a tiny pub. And, yes, the selection of real ales is very limited. Possibly for this reason it never seems to get too crowded - apart from the day the station roof leaked, leaving this one the only concourse bar open. However, this tiny bar with limited selection has one very important redeeming feature (for me at least); it is the only bar on the entire Victoria Station premises where you are not treated as the enemy. Visit the Iron Duke, Bonapartes, Molly O'Grady or the JDW on the concourse and you will be treated as some kind of social leper by the bar staff. Not so the Mash Tun. So, keep up the good work: this unit deserves to do well.
