Rex Rattus left this review about Milkwood

This place has clearly changed a lot since it was the Escape bar. They even had a real ale on - Harvey's Best, but unfortunately the barman found it to be too "lively" to even get a decent half out, leaving me to go for a half of London Beer Factory keg Beyond the Pale (£2.25 a half). It was quite good actually, as long as you like hoppy beer. They do food, but I didn't look at a menu.

In fact this place seems very much a glorified cafe. It's obviously a shop conversion, and furnishings are mainly cheap looking tables and chairs. When I was in during a Friday afternoon there was some noisy music playing, which served to increase the noise level by people having to talk more loudly as a result. One noteworthy thing about this place is that it has its own small cinema in the basement - called Under Milkwood obviously - whereby members pay a fiver a month and then watch as many films as they want. They seem to show only "retro" films - i.e. nothing new.
It's really not my sort of place, but I popped in here because I had 20 minutes or so before my train, and WhatPub said it did real ale. But I can't see me returning.

A bar for the younger drinker. No ale as I recall.
