This was quite a popular small pub with us in the late '80s, not least because it was next to our office in Gresse Street, now demolished. Fairly traditional inside - certainly at the time - and dark with the bar and pot shelf on the left, carpeted, some Charrington's leaded stained glass and separate bar upstairs. Always used to get very smoky too.
Closed in 2010 and probably one of the better pubs in the area.

This is a very depressing pub that should be a lot better seeing that it is in the heart of the west end.The Tim Taylor Landlord, which was served up by a barman who seemed to have great difficulty in speaking or understanding English was well below standard. I remember that around about 1980 I was told to leave this pub by a very rude landlord because it was past "drinking up time" and I vowed never to return. I did. It is still the same crap hole as it was then. I should have learned my lesson.MacArthur and Arnie were wrong, do not return!

A long and deep narrow room, the bar in the front area has a couple of black horses on the top and an etched mirror on the bar back with the pub name, however this does not look original to me. The front area near the bar has wooden floors, a couple of those high tables plus some stools at a ledge facing the street. I liked the ornate ceiling, pink with white cornices and mouldings, and some gilded detail. The middle ceiling looks like an infilled rooflight to me, but I'm supposing. The front window has the pub name inscribed and has some green stained glass.
The rear area of the pub has more traditional seating, and is carpeted. There is a fireplace but it is now closed in.
Overall, not as much dark wood as in other Nicholson's I've visited and smaller too.
Beers were Timothy Taylor's Landlord plus Golden Best, Sharps Doom Bar, and Pride. One other pump had the clip reversed. There is another room upstairs but I didn't bother to take a look.
