|The leather-jacketed and jeans-wearing counterpart of the posh pubs nearby, I liked this pub for its DJ's music selection, its cheerful atmosphere, its encouragement to people to get up and dance. I liked it less for having three handpumps but no ale on at all - come on guys, it was a Friday night. I know we used to drink my old local dry but that was in a backstreet and this is in the smart destination area of St Paul's. |

|Great place to finish the night off - just don't touch anything on cask or draught!! I know many people who have been ill from the pints here - stories of "yellow-headed guinness" |
Stick to bottled beer though or spirits and its fine, good atmosphere and great staff.

|Popped into this pub/concert venue on a lively friday evening last Nov, Was impressed to find 3 handpumps on including Wentworth "WPA" that was very good, 7/10|

|I've only visited on a lunchtime, but the beer was OK, the curry not bad, and while it's a bit grubby, it's not awful.|

|Large music driven pub with wooden floors and a number of alcoves to the right of the door as you enter. Itís getting a bit scruffy and could do with a spruce up. There are four handpumps on the bar but only three were on. Springhead Roaring Meg and Puritan Porter along with Everards Sunchaser. Tried a pint of the Sunchaser, it was vinegar. Took it back and it was changed with no problem once the manager had been called. The young lad behind the bar had no idea whether it was off or not. Tried the Roaring Meg instead which was fine. The staff were all very friendly and were having a laugh and joke even though I was effectively complaining. Good background music when I was in but there was obviously going to be live music on later. Itís OK, not one to go out of your way for but I didnít think it was as bad as some of the previous reviewers.|
