Shepherd Neame 'flat iron' pub on a corner. Had Master Brew and Howling Wolf on handpump. The Howling Wolf was okay if a little bland. One of the few places in the vicinity that still resemble a proper pub. There was a band/musicians setting up that took up most of the bar area (and the tables etc) very little room left for punters (though I was the only one at that point)

Great little pub. The downstairs venue is tiny but the sound is absolutely superd. Lovely place.

After 1 pint in The Crown it was a short walk to pub number 3 and the first chain pub of the evening.

This Shepherd and Neame pub occupies a corner plot right on Farringdon Road.

5 pumps all serving Sheps ales, I had the Summer Sizzler, it was very good.

Quick service from the small bar area, it was very busy inside with tables outside also all taken.

Very interesting wallpaper and some odd portraits hanging above the bar as decoration.

As it was busy inside we took our pint and went outside were there are barrels to rest your beer on, attractive lanterns also hang outside.

Even though it’s right on a busy main road and close to a busy junction it’s a friendly homely feeling pub that’s worth a stop and a pint.

Well decorated bar on a busy main road. Full range of Shepherd Neame beers. Quiet on a Wednesday afternoon, so got served easily.Nice pint of Late Red.

I had a party here about a month ago - the bar and staff were fantastic. They can sort food out for you but I didn't go with that as I didn't know how many people would turn up. Some friends bought food and loved it.
They can supply record decks, cd player or you can just plug in your ipod. They couldn't do enough to be honest. The party ended up really busy (as far as I remember....) and staff were unflappable. Only gripe upstairs lady's loo wasn't working so I had to stumble down 2 flights down the stairs in high heels!
Even with this it's a definite 10 out of 10
