Went here with some mates as part of a crawl. They have a nice selection of beers, such as Fullers ESB and Seafarer. A traditional boozer. Prices are what you would expect in the West End, about £5 a pint. I had the Seafarer, which was well kept. We stood outside and experienced the sweet fragrance of the drains.

Went here a couple of weeks ago with a couple of mates - first time we'd been in for a while and we were pleased to note that the pong from the bogs/drains was gone!

Another good pub - properly old and tucked away up a small street/alley but still sought out by tourists. They don't tend to stop too long though so far as I can see.

Inside, its suitably dark and unreconstructed - especially the back bar which has a great cosy ambiance - long may the brewery/pubco leave it alone.

Beer is good - I had the Seafarers (I think that's what its called) it was in good condition and well poured by the first bar person who served me. Indeed he spotted a slightly short measure and topped it up before I asked. Unfortunately, generally the service is a bit lacking - no idea which order to serve people in and get awkward if you point out that they are ignoring you. Also short measures from one of the female servers who got quite shirty when I asked for a top up - "pay for it first and I'll top it up". Not good.

So, good beer and good pub - but only a six because of the service.

Plenty of real ales to choose from and a good place to stand outside on a summer's evening, without being run over. Too many sweary pissed twits for my liking, and expensive (£4.40 per pint), but you can do a lot worse in Convent Garden.

Another pub that I haven't been in for a very long time.

I always liked the Lamb & Flag and my recent visit has not changed my mind, now a Fuller's may have been before but I don't remember.

8 hand pumps dispensing 7 Fullers ales and 1 from Butcombe. I had a very good pint of Brit Hop.

Food had stopped being served by the time we arrived so we tucked into the Mini pies and pork scratchings that were served in a glass.

Half busy when I visited, decent pub that is worthy of another visit, it's proper traditional, old and has real charm.

Just noticed how much is a pint here.... £4.25 for an ESB.
