Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Boadicea

Formerly the Queen Boadicea, this place initially looks like its now called "BC" from the initials on the awnings and the pub sign (although this appreviation appears to stand for 'Boadicea Clerkenwell'). One is then struck by the plain dark red tiling on the ground floor walls, an impression which is then reinforced as you step inside as the floors and walls are decorated in the same manner which gives a very harsh look. The windows are quite large and appear to be modern, as does the patterned metal grill false ceiling. The furniture in the bar area - with its signage saying "Welcome to this Watneys house" - and corner lounge are a bit gastro-pub style, unlike the clientele which mainly seems to comprise students from the nearby City University (and who were displaying a distinct lack of interest in the chap trying to run a quiz night). Two beers on handpump - Deuchards IPA and the seasonal Caledonian Oktoberbest (tasty enough, but very expensive at £3.80).
