Quite busy this one, on our Saturday afternoon visit. The pub had a respectable atmosphere and seems to have attracted the hipster crowd, so maybe this is the new 'in place'. The far end of the bar has a stunning display of etched glass mirrors, and the large Victorian skylight in the far room is definitely worth seeing. There were five handpumps on the bar, with three in use. We went for the Sambrookes Wandle, which I haven't tried for a while.

Recently refurbished (yet again), this is an extraordinarily ornate pub; given its size and enormous skylight, ballroom would probably be a better description. If seated, you're treated to a free bum massage courtesy of vibrations caused by passing underground trains.

Despite arriving at about 9.30 pm, there were five large transparent polythene rubbish bags displaying their contents propped up against the side of the pub. Behind the bar, the floor was filthy: covered in bottle tops, soaking wet with piles of both wet and soggy paper. It was at this point that the metal spirit measures tumbled onto the floor. Picked up, they were returned to their shelf with no attempt made to clean them. Two trays of clean glasses from the dishwasher were placed on the floor as finally a member of staff made a half hearted attempt to clean around them. Eventually I was served and service was friendly.

I popped out for a smoke and to keep the bin bags - which now numbered six - company only to return and find my half drunk pint cleared away. My other belongings were on the table so obviously they must have guessed I was returning, so why take my pint? I went to the new lavatories and it's clear that they haven't learnt from their previous mistakes: the floor was awash with fluid (I'd guess not water) and as with the old loos, covered with soggy paper. Yet another transparent polythene bin bag was present by the basins. It was at this point that the Forum crowd arrived; the ladies loo was unable to accommodate the arrival of so many women at once, so they all piled into the gents - nice.

I don't think this pub gives a toss for its customers; I doubt very much I'll return.
