Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Thomas Becket

Side-street pub, but right in the centre of the city so popular with a mix of (mostly) tourists and (a few) locals from the chatter I heard. The interior has been remodelled and comprehensively refurbished, but has an alehouse look that seems appropriate for the location. A couple of old Rigdens Ales glazed panels can also be found in the front windows. Very ordinary choice of Doom Bar, London Pride (£4.20) and Rosie's Pig cider from three of four handpumps.

A civilised backstreet pub with a fairly plain wooden interior, cheered up with assorted tat and a bunch of hops. At the back is a tiny covered yard with artificial grass, but it doesn't even pretend to be a garden. The beer range was a bit pedestrian, with Doom Bar, London Pride and Bombardier (plus a cider) but actually quite a pleasant pub.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Thomas Becket

We caught this on a bad day as the barman was pig ignorant and had a uninviting and unfriendly manner. The pub had four handpumps with three on, we chose the Cross Bay. It was only when the barman commented about cask ale, saying he had no interest in the stuff and added he couldn't stand the stuff, with an attitude of comtempt, that I told him that he was not very inspiring to the customer. He didn't give a damn, so we left. A decent pub by the looks of it, it only takes some idiot to bring a place down to their level. The pub got a six for the building and its fixtures and fittings and beer range. I would call again when the barman is thrown out.
