Food very good. Drinks very good. Service very attentive.

Toilets bloody awful. Stall toilet seat broken in the gents; urinal reeking of urine, with extra urinal cakes tossed in in a vain attempt to mask the smell instead of scrubbing with disinfectant.

My companion reported that the ladies' was similarly dreadful, with one stall completely out of order and the other only barely usable.

Popped in for a quick one whilst researching watering holes for a forthcoming extended stay in London.

OK sort of pub, nice pint of Youngs but not quite as good as the Prince of Wales round the corner.

Not a bad little pub, the Pride was fine. The window seats offer a great view of the passing world.

The visit was made more interesting thanks to the actions of a strange woman who arrived, sat down and lit up a cigarette. Her reasoning seemed to suggest that 'because she lived in a big house she should be allowed to smoke in a pub'. The situation was well handled by the landlady, despite being questioned about her sexual orientation.

Popped in on a Tuesday, early evening. A few people in, quite a mix, suits, oldies, couple of youngsters. Beer was fine. Okayish pub, good if you get a wndow seat and watch the world go by but there are much better close by.

When I was a much more frequent visitor to the area it always used to surprise me that in such busy shopping street in an expensive area there was only one pub on the High St itself and that was the rather shabby Goat Tavern.

Roll on 15 years and the Goat retains its unique position (its actually right at the Hyde Park end of the High St) but has been sympathetically refurbished and actually a pretty good place to visit. It is a long narrow pub with the bar along the left and a well lit rear area. Decor is very comfortable and the pub has a Cask Marque with the offerings when I was in consisting of Hobgoblin, Deuchars IPA, Youngs Gold and Pride.

It was pretty empty on my afternoon visit which is surprising given how busy the High St is but perhaps people don't realise it is there tucked around a bend in the road near Hyde Park. In any case I found the Goat a pleasant place and would recommend it to people if in the area.
