interesting experience in this pub as I seemed to stumble into a gathering of ‘very important men’ with strong East African accents. Always liked Sheps ales and they were in good form here. ornate-ish interior. A good pub once you get over those bloody prices, argh!!!

A standard Sheps London pub, obviously as Tris found it a few days before me,Sixs pumps with the usual range, uninspiring.

I came here once before some years ago as a first so don't really recall it that well, but went here the other night with three friends.
It's much as described below and presumably takes its name from Freemasons' Hall across the road, familiar to many as it was used as Thames House in the TV series Spooks.
I didn't get the impression that there's much of any significance to the interior though there's an attractive bar back with a pot shelf above the bar itself. Otherwise there are button back dark leatherette banquets to the perimeter with conventional furniture and a handful of tall tables and chairs, a lantern beneath which there may once have been a pool table. The floor is part modern bare boarded with carpet to the raised area to the rear. TVs showed football with the sound down so as not to clash with the music which played at an uncomfortable level and the pub was rammed with office workers fuelled with much Christmas cheer, or more likely Bishop's Finger.
Ales: the standard Neame line-up, served well and at reasonable prices for Covent Garden.
There's not much to mark this place out, though the same can be said for pretty much every pub in this area so I can't see any compelling reason to return, especially with such loud music.
