Set back in a side alley despite its Charing Cross Road address, this pub is easily recognisable by its garish pink sign. A pretty basic bar in a 70's office block, with an even more basic basement below, and the only real 'attraction' being a regular disco. It does however at least have two handpumps and Cask Marque accreditation; one is only Doom Bar but the other offered St Austell Proper Cracker in good condition.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Royal George

Small pub located in a charmless 1970s building located at the end of Goslett Yard, a short side street on the west side of Charing Cross Road. Almost hidden by the long-term Crossrail works outside, and façade has hardly been enhanced by the garish pink colour scheme added since my last visit about five years ago. Very cramped inside, especially during the regular live music events, meaning that there is often a large crowd out on the pavement (although not this time). However, there is also a downstairs bar so you wonder why they don't make more use of it. Food offer now 'Ruby Jean's Diner'. Two handpumps, but with the Doom Bar off, this just left Tribute (£3.75).

Lively pub on the edge of Soho, more for Brits than tourists but not exactly a local. Bar snacks, banter from the staff, a choice of ales, it's all a bit theme-parkish. On the plus side, the two ales on were not the usual fare, so I had a pint of Purity's Warlord, a new one on me, which was OK but tasted much weaker than its 6.5ABV tag suggests and was a really enjoyable pint. I'd probably come back to try the beers but it's not the best pub in the area.
