Nothing special about this place. Guinness was OK but there was no real ale at all.

A ghastly hole down a filthy back alley entered through a pile of litter whose smell was amplified by the patio-heater-emphasised heat-trap the alley has become. The bar was dirty, noisy and crowded. Staff were unfriendly. No real ale on offer, just overpriced megakeg. I have no desire to go back here.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Retro Bar

I had forgotten that this is now known as a gay pub, although this isn't immediately obvious since it seems to attract quite a mixed crowd. Very busy early on a Friday evening, with - as is so often the case in central London - many customers standing outside on the pavement. This is just as well as there is precious little space in the small, 'L'shaped bar. Lots of interesting black and white photographs on the walls, and plenty of cabaret, quizes and other events advertised in the upstairs room (not visited). Decent selection of music on the jukebox. Main problem is the beer - no real ale, so it was just a quick pint of John Smiths (surprisingly only £2.90) and I was off.
