Now 'Sir Christopher Hatton' again.

The most notable part of my visit here was the dreadful pint of Guinness that I was served by the barmaid who knew that it was bad as she swapped pumps halfway through to try and get some life into the pint. I shouldnít have knocked a couple of mouthfuls back as I paid for it a couple of hours later whilst in the Seven Stars.

Anyway, this is a Nicholsonís pub with a decent sized open plan bar with numerous picnic tables available for sitting outside. There is also a large cellar bar which was unfortunately closed during my visit as I visited before 5pm. Both of these bars are badly lit, but then most Nicholsonís pubs are.

Pride, Landlord, Golden Best, Morrissey Blonde and Dalesideís Autumn Leaves were available alongside Old Rosie and a standard and premium draught selection.

I canít see myself returning here again as there are so many better pubs in the area.

Been in here on Holborn pub crawls on a numerous amount of occassions. This pub is a cracker with good interesting range of beers and decent food both served at Nicholsons "Fair Trade" prices ie. not too expensive. Very handy for transport links as it is virtually next to Chancery Lane tube.

The pub also more often than not is spotlessly clean and tidy and there is always a good atmosphere. Will be back soon.

Decent pub with a good range of ales on. Fairly quiet on Tuesday afternoon but would certainly visit again when in the area but only after I had been to the Old Mitre first!!

Big improvement since re-opening: now renamed The Sir Christopher Hatton (which was its previous name) as part of the Nicholson's chain. Five or six real ales on when I visited, including two or three interesting looking ones, although pubs in this neck of the woods will always struggle to compete against the Mitre. I had a boring-looking but actually quite tasty sausage bagette. The decor is rather nicer in here than it was when it was the Goose as well.

Wandered in here last Wednesday, first time for years, and knocked out by the range of beers. Had a very decent pint of Wadworth's Henry's IPA. Staff friendly & efficient. Didn't try any food. Recent refurbishment looks good.
