|Omigosh! A Greene King pub that has a GENUINE guest ale (i.e. not chosen from one of the brewers it has brutally taken over over the last few years :-( ) - AND the delicious Brains' Rev St James to boot - yum yum yummmmmmm!|

|Working round the corner I used to spend a substantial amount of time here. I like the three different "zones" - outside covered patio, old-man and trendy sofa bit., though it's a shame the pool tables have gone from downstairs and I don't like my feeling that the manager is trying to move it from a characterful boozer to just another city wine bar. For now though, the beer is good GK stuff, and it's well-staffed with friendly but mostly inexperienced girls, and importantly has most of my favourite crisps - monster munch, quavers, doritos etc! So overall, in light of recent changes, I'd say it's still a decent place to have a beer, but it's not the destination pub it once was.|

|This pub was the latest chosen for our bi-monthly London outing. A new venue for most of us. On arrival at 5.30PM the place was completely jammed with city suits, both inside and outside. However saying that we managed to get served quite quickly by the efficient bar staff, who seemed up to the early evening challenge. As said below standard Greene King fair with the ubiquitous IPA and Speckled Hen. However last night there was a hand pump for something called Bonkers Conkers ( which this morning Iíve managed to establish is Greene Kingís new seasonal brew, launched this month after it went down well at the Great British Beer Festival. ).|
Pleasant enough pint with a slight nutty flavour that the name implies. But at 4.1% probably not the ideal session beer, going by the thickness of my head this morning. But as the IPA ran out halfway through the evening there was no choice but to stay on the Bonkers Conkers. This lead to some surreal conversations on the subject of if you only want a half, do you ask for a Bonkers or a Conkers ?.
Anyway back to the pub. Kind of three room set up with a small central bar area and then a larger lounge room off to the side, and then a large area downstairs where the bogs are, which now has leather seats in instead of the once pool tables mentioned by previous reviewers. I guess the additional seating area downstairs was put in because the lounge area is rented out for private functions (as it was last night) and when this happens the very nice outside courtyard area, ( especially when you have a pleasant autumnal evening ) has to take the strain.
All in all pleasant enough pub and the beer was kept well.

|Visited Friday lunchtime. Looks like Greene King, although, fortunately, the pub sign hasn't been forsaken in place of the GK bloke. The pool tables seem to have vanished in favour of a few tables and sofas downstairs. IPA, Abbott & Specky Hen on + usual range of lagers. Reasonable condition.|
Not a bad pub, I've got to say, but wouldn't put it any better than high-middling.
