CLOSED. This pub is now a Cafe Rouge. Sad times!

Maybe the last review was an indication of what was about to come. I walked past this place at 9pm on a tuesday and it was shut, empty and no signs outside the premisis.

Forced to go here to avoid a Bank Holiday downpour.
General poor state of repair in the pub (hanging wires & damaged paintwork).
Unhelpful/rude bar staff (who refused to top up a pint, citing that they had provided the required 95% liquid and who claimed never to have heard of CAMRA).
Probably the worst plate of nachos I've ever been presented with!
Also, they can't spell "accommodation" on their chalkboard near the front entrance.

Busy on a wet Saturday night, but nothing special. Several ales on. Handy for a last drink before Waterloo. Better off visiting The Harp just across the road.

Being next to Charing Cross just reinforces the feeling that everything and everyone here is passing through,
That said i feel it probably deserves a better rating than it has.
Cannot say anything is bad and cannot say anything is good, just fair for what it is, a last stop before the train.
