Small one roomed Greene King pub with weak real ale and the cider was off for my visit. Will not be returning.

Yet another Taylor Walker outlet. This one has a small L shaped interior with the usual T&W fittings - bits of dark varnish wood plus some etched and frosted windows. Sports TV. Four ales on and a crappy old selection for T&W standards, 3x GK (Abbot, London Glory, OSH) plus Westerham 1730 which was in decent shape. As usual it's expensive prices, this one cost £4 50. Utterly functional and unremarkable.

Taylor Walker pub with quite a small ground floor bar more people outside than inside during my visit( didn't visit upstairs). 4 real ales and food served.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Lamb & Flag

Compact Taylor Walker pub with a first-floor seating / dining area larger (and quieter) than the bar itself. Having said that, most of the customers were outside on the pavement and in the paved yard leading to St Christopher's Place early on a sunny Friday, as is the normal way in such places. Typical olde London furniture and decor. Four hand pumps on the counter, offering 1730, Greene King IPA, Pride and Otter Bitter (£4.05 less 10% Camra discount) on this visit.

They had Young’s Bitter and London Pride on – The London Gold was apparently not quite ready when I visited in mid-afternoon on Wednesday, but they left the clip facing out. The Pride was £3.30 a pint, which is more than I like to pay for this beer. There are more seats outside than inside, and although all the outside seats were occupied there were a couple inside that were unoccupied. I suppose that this is not surprising as it’s right by the mainly al fresco dining area of St Christopher’s Place, which is a stone’s throw from Oxford Street and Bond St. The mass of faux chalkboards inside identify it as a Punch pubco pub and it’s typical of the breed – fairly characterless, vinegar and tomato ketchup on the tables, staff all in black, etc. It apparently caters for the Oxford St masses, being mainly food led, which seems just as overpriced as the ale – a 6oz Big Ben burger for £9.25 says it all. In short it’s a tourist trap, and not the sort of place where I would normally choose to stop for a pint, and I doubt whether I shall do so again.

Reasonably well-kept pub in restaurant street just off Oxford Street. Music still a bit loud, but otherwise not bad.

There were more people outside this pub than in during my visit which could have been due to the nice setup of seating merging with the many restaurants or it could be due to the overly loud dance music blasting out of the speakers on a Tuesday night. There are a couple of TV's that were showing Sky Sports news which was muted, not that anyone was watching them.

Bombardier, Greene King IPA and Pride were available during my visit alongside a limited standard draught selection and the barman was nice enough in a disinterested kind of way.

There are a lot of pubs in this area and I don't think that this one stands out from the rest.
