A smallish Shepherd Neame house at the top of Shaftesbury Avenue. A pleasantly furnished bar, wood panelled with leaded windows and a function room upstairs. There is one TV screen, but located up out of the way. Usual tables outside on the pavement.

Old style Shepherd Neame pub with stained glass windows. Didn't visit upstairs. 4 real ales and food served.

This pub apparently dates from 1856 and is rather attractive. There's pale wood panelling throughout with some very extensive stained glass windows and a bare boarded floor and furniture is conventional with some banquettes. There was a TV showing the news with the sound off, muted music played but sadly there's a games machine.
Being a Shep's pub the ales held no surprises with Spitfire, Spitfire Gold, Whitstable Bay Pale Ale and Early Bird at £2.10 a half. Cheap for the area and really rather nice too.
This is a decent enough pub for those who aren't allergic to this brewer's beers and I'd come again if on a crawl.
