Had a very pleasant evening last night. A good social pub without the usual hen and stagg tourists and a bottle of rose wine was only £7.24 so good value too. The bar staff were friendly and very efficient and will go again for pre drinks when going on to the theatre etc.

We had a burger and a pint meal in the Washington and really enjoyed it. Good value for money. The pub was showing football so was busy and this led to a good atmosphere. Would certainly visit again

Ordered food and it came within 10/15 mins.. wasn't told or asked about sauces so went to the bar... More

If you want coffee you have to wait until the 1 or 2 bar staff members feel like making it. The bar staff hold what should be private conversations while serving you, and it's always a short measure, my Stella was served with an inch of head on it, when I asked for it to be topped up I was...

Staff very friendly and meal was very cheap. Two 3 course meals and 2 drinks all for just over 14 pounds. Would certainly go back. What... More
