Thuck Phat left this review about The Three Johns
A very pleasant street corner boozer in a traditional building which has had a reasonably sympathetic update.
It reminded me of the Craft Beer Co. near Holborn with benches around the walls and a large space in the middle for the busy periods. I enjoyed the irreverant pictures.
Each table is equipped with a menu, pizzas a speciality, but there isn't any pressure to eat.
Service was efficient and friendly - Ray's description of "hip and upbeat" catches it perfectly.
Plenty of interesting keg offerings with just three cask options: Five Points Pale, Moor Confidence and Mordue Five Bridges. Both the Pale and the Confidence were very good.
A cool and calming spot for a very good pint on a hot day.

I didn't realise that Craft Beer Co. nearby doesnt open midweek lunchtimes,so this was the default option,and it turned out very good.A Victorian street corner building ,it has a very high ceiling with embossed copper decoration making quite a feature.Traditional wooden furniture around the periphery ,leaving a large space for vertical drinking infront of the bar,as noted by others there is a side room with more seats.The windows are huge and let in a lot of natural light while the barback is interesting,a sturdy book case design filled up with spirit bottles and whisky galore up to the ceiling.Chatting to the barmaid on how the top bottles are reached,she told me staff climb up the frame,so it must be well fitted.
On one wall there is a painted old style advert for the pubs offerings which together with some jokey prints of old master classics enhanced the vibe,the muzak was at a sensible volume and lead to a mellow lunchtime session.
At the bar there are 16 craft keg taps for the creatives and hipsters,while real ale types have a choice from 3 handpumps,which on my trip was Mordue Five Bridges,Five Points Pale and Moor Confidence,with everything we tried on very good form.
Better than I expected,I would have no trouble coming in again and supping their well kept real ale.I failed to check out the gents to see if there are actually three johns.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Three Johns
I found the bar staff in here to be hip and upbeat. They all had good knowledge about the drinks they were serving, from a cask ale to Gins or Bourbons. The pub was very busy on our Friday eve visit, with the majority of their customers drinking al fresco, along the main and side streets.
The inside was also quite busy, so we sat at the bar for speedy refreshment. The pub had lots of windows along each side, all of which opened to create a good breeze flowing in. Three handpumps, so we went for the Northern Monk True North, which was in excellent shape.
