Tris C left this review about The Court

A pub, originally called the Roebuck, has been here since at least the late 18th century. I came here once, not out of choice, but to wait for the bus queues to die down following a tube strike around 1990. Back then it was called Canons, later a Firkin pub, the current name in existence from I know not when.
This area isn't exactly a hotbed of quality pubs and there are few positives here in what is essentially a transient tourists' and officer workers' watering hole with a sports bent. It's a formulaic pub with conventional furniture including some peripheral leather banquettes. The bored-looking mainly middle-aged male clients are entertained by a couple of games machines and three TVs showing the footie, thereafter muted music played when the game finished. Food comprises basic fry-up fayre.
Ales: Greene King IPA, Redemption's Trinity, Fuller's London Pride, Sharp's Doom Bar and Hogsback's TEA at a very decent £1.90 a half. Though a little dull, it was ok and the quality, choice and especially price are way more of an incentive to drink here rather than in the Fitzrovia Belle over the road which charges twice the price for a similar beer, has a less appealing interior and assaults the senses with fully four extra TVs; this is clearly the better of the two, but I can't see a reason to return.

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

Unbranded M&B (Oak Tree) pub, with a mid-size rectangular bar plus an upstairs room. Further seating outside on the pavement. Fairly anonymous furniture and decor. Reasonably priced all-day menu. Background music. Pride, Pedigree (£3.55), Rev James and Sharp's Atlantic from four of five handpumps on this visit.
