No real ale and the Guinness was not on form. Will not be returning.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Players Bar & Kitchen

Didn't realise that the bar of the Charing Cross Theatre was open to the general public until they started putting up posters a couple of years ago. Located deep under the railway arches, you enter a small bar with simple furniture and decor. However, there is a larger and more comfortable room beyond (with grand piano and spiral staircase) which feels more like a hotel bar/lounge than anything else. No real ale, with just Guinness, Stella, Budweiser and Becks Vier available on draught plus bottled London Pride (£3.95).

This place is OK if you've had a couple too many and 23:00 has been and gone. The staff were pleasant enough and the clientele were not the sort that you'd find in the Dog and Duck supping on an ale, but I had no problems with them even though there were a few that looked like they were about to disappear up their own backsides. There was a guy playing on a piano and although he wasn't great it did add to the atmosphere.

I had a decent pint of Guinness from the standard draught selection and although it was a little pricey it was no more than other late night venues.

I would never plan to return, but I wouldn’t be surprised if I found myself here again.
