Tris C left this review about The Clachan

Described as ‘Renaissance’, the pub dates from 1898, rebuilt on the site of the Bricklayers Arms (c. 1750) and has a CAMRA listed inventory interior of Regional Importance.
Certainly, there’s much of heritage value in here, in the form of elaborate woodwork and etched glass. There’s a raised area to the rear and furniture is dark wood conventional. The floor is part mosaic, the ceiling Lincrusta; all about shows a good patina of age, with lighting coming from Victorian-style glass and brass lamps. There are tea lights in holders to tables, along with little glass salt filled bottles and silk flowers; décor comes in the form of knickknacks in a glass fronted cupboard; framed prints adorn the walls. Music played at a decent level and The Antiques Roadshow played silently on a TV; the efficient staff were transfixed.
Ales: Doom, Pride, Nicholson’s Pale and Proper Job at £2.70 a half and nice.
This is a pleasant place to spend some time, not appearing to be at the epicentre of ‘nightlife’ Soho.

An impressive looking pub, which still retains some interesting features, I especially liked the mosaics found outside the right hand side door entrance, with the pubs name inscribed. These tiles also continue into the pub, and can be just made out under the row of small tables along the wall. Another main feature was the patterned ceilings which had the shape of flower heads, made up of concentric petals. The ceilings were either painted in a deep brown colour or had aged from many years of tobacco smoke. Seven ales on handpump, with many usual suspects, so we went for the Trumans Zephyr, which was decent enough.
