Bucking Fastard left this review about The Fitzrovia

A street corner Greene King tied house,although the square open plan interior is wood panelled in parts,it really lacks atmosphere.Furniture is crammed in with a mix of banquettes,high tables and dining style tables and chairs.The muzak was a dirge,the corporate menus scattered everywhere indicated that food service reheated gruel is all that's on offer.At least the flatscreens were on mute.
The 4 handpumps were offering GK IPA,Abbott ,Rockin' Rudolph and TT Landlord (NBSS 1.5,lifeless,tasted wrong).Apart from the cheery barmaid ,this pub is truely awful.Avoid.

A fair-sized corner pub of one large room with good traditional furnishings. A few TV screens are placed round the sides, and there is a somewhat out-of-place fireplace at one end pretending to be a library. There are a few tables out on the pavement for outdoor types. Draught beers were Landlord and Belhaven 1719 alongside the obligatory IPA and Abbot.

Originally the Valiant Trooper, this pub was rebuilt in the mid-1930s and became the Fitzrovia in 2002.

As described below, with a flashing games machine and sport TV with the sound off, thankfully and plastic laminated menus and a slightly touristy crowd who probably thought this was the apotheosis of the Merry Olde London Pub.

Service was fine, providing Truman's Swift, Moreland's Old Golden Hen, GK Abbot and London Glory at a hefty £4.50 and it wasn't at all nice; perhaps it's supposed to taste that way.

I'd give the pub an extra point for the disabled WC, but the unjustifiably high beer prices, electric distractions and overall impression mean that I won't be returning.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Fitzrovia

A one roomed Taylor Walker pub where we found the majority of customers sitting out front, along the seated pavement area. Four ales on, with Truman's Lazarus costing £4.60 a pint.

They had on London Pride, Head in a Hat Titfer, Truman’s Blindside, and London Fields Love Not War, the latter a stonking £2.08 for a half. This place is very typical of a Central London Tatlor Walker pub. There’s a straightforward interior to this single room pub – tall tables/tall stools on the bare-boarded right hand side of the pub, and normal tables and chairs on the carpeted left hand side. The usual Tayler Walker pub grub menu is available; and TVs were (muted) showing the cricket. There’s an easy access toilet on the ground floor

The pub itself is quite unremarkable, but the ale selection is OK, with a couple from London microbreweries on during my visit. And the 10% CamRA discount (although not advertised in this pub) makes the prices a bit more palatable for those of us who are members.

Steve C left this review about The Fitzrovia

I quite like this pub and it always seems to be busy when I venture in. Deuchars, Pride and bombardier were available on my last visit along with a range of standard and premium lagers.

I've found the staff to be friendly and it never takes that long to be served no matter how busy.

Definitely recommended if in the area.

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

Very crowded and noisy on an early Tuesday evening, but the overall atmosphere was reasonable (i.e. people wanting to be there, rather than thinking that they ought to be seen there). Unfortunately the Batemans Rosey Nosey was conditioning and the London Pride was nothing to write home about, but will try again next time I am in the area.
