Super choice of réal beers. I enjoyed the hoppy pale ale which was superb. Handy for the UCL students to quench their throats. Fun session pub.

Friendly and typical London Pub. Good selection of beers and Ales. Somewhat limited food but it is a pub. I had a late lunch. Pub food and a pint for 16 pounds. Rather busy and good location. Perfectly OK for a London Pub.
