Exceptional staff; my friends drink tasted funny so the bar staff tried some and said how horrible it was and offered a different drink instantly. Only negative would be the pub is a bit on the small side after work.

This place is almost always busy. Not surprising given its location 60 seconds from Trafalgar Square and it's excellent beers. Often difficult to find a seat.

Hi DavidCarolKt and many thanks for your 5 star rating. There are a few small pockets of quieter times during a day, but mainly busy because of our excellent range of beers. Glad to hear you enjoy coming here.
