Graham Coombs left this review about Museum Tavern

A good traditional Bloomsbury pub with typical nice wood and glasswork. A fairly long thin bar, with leather banquettes along the side and a few tables outside on the pavement. Handy for the British Museum opposite. On handpumps were the usual Abbot and IPA, plus Theakston's Old Peculier, Sambrook's Junction and Wimbledon Copper Leaf, as well as a couple of ciders.

The Museum Tavern is a Traditional London boozer located over the road from the entrance of the British Museum. Hence it wasn’t surprising to find it full of diners during a recent lunchtime visit. My wife was working in this pub when we met circa 2000 so I have spent many an hour sat at the bar waiting for her to finish her shift. Unsurprisingly the décor is pretty much the same, but Greene King is now the landlord.
Along the left hand wall is the bar that faces seating down the windowed right hand side in this thin pub. At the rear is is some more seating and the some very smelly toilets are located downstairs. Available from the bar is a premium draught range and I counted seven hand pumps. These were drawing Redemption’s Hopspur, Theakston’s Old Peculiar, GK London Glory, GK IPA, Truman’s Swift and Old Rosie and Cheddar Valley ciders. Traditional pub grub is available all day and the popular fish and chips were priced at £13.
This is a decent enough pub that would be worthy of a revisit if in the area.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Museum Tavern

Quite a narrow pub, now a Greene King house, with a long and interestingly-decorated bar taking up much of the back wall. Plenty of other historic features to look at if you manage to find a quiet time (not easy, as it is usually packed with people visiting the British Museum - directly opposite). Usually has a good selection from the seven handpumps, and on this visit I found IPA, London Glory, Redemption Fellowship porter (£4.95, but in great shape) and Theakston's Old Peculier plus a couple of ciders. Much better than you might expect from such an obvious tourist trap.
