Will Larter left this review about The Fitzroy Tavern

A man at the bar was querying with the (foreign-born) barman whether the seemingly original internal features here were merely reproduction, turning to me to confirm his view that it wasn't like this five years ago. I had to inform him that this was my first visit, but I have to say, if it's not original then it's a painstaking and careful restoration. I went in through the corner entrance, labelled "Public", which shares a very small section of the bar counter with the other rooms, one to the left and two (I think) to the right, the first one being separated by a glazed screen of about six foot in height. If you find yourself in the wrong room, you can put it right by either leaving the pub and entering by another door, or by descending to the toilets and following signs to the other side.

As well as the usual range of Sam's keg and bottled beers, there is hand pull Old Brewery Bitter here, and on the occasion of my visit it was in excellent condition. There was a decent crowd in for a Monday evening, which is not surprising with OBB at the equivalent of £3.50 a pint, compared to almost £5 in other pubs in the area. I would certainly include this one on a return visit to Fitzrovia.

A rather wonderful recreation of a Victorian boozer. Multi-roomed and you can't move between most of them. Instead you need to go outside and use another entrance or, as I later discovered, go down to the traps which traverse both ends of the building like an underpass. The layout upstairs; to the centre and right is the etched glass and wood bit, and to the left is a darker and quieter area which houses the locals who are less fussed by the ornateness elsewhere. Cask OBB available here and so, the following week, would be the Stingo. Went for a Strawberry beer in attempt to complete the whole Sam’s set. I liked it here but it is a place where you need to time your visit well as there aren’t really that many seats and service at the single bar, encompassing many areas with no visible sight line, can be variable.
