Originally licenced as the Red Lion in 1765, this was destroyed by a V2 in 1944 to be rebuilt in 1958, named after the Georgian architect to Whitbread, for whom the pub was built. It now has a CAMRA heritage interior of Regional Importance.
The previous reviews and CAMRA’s description do a fine job by way of description; I’d describe it as being a neo-Regency/Art Deco mashup, with lots of ugly illuminated founts and Corona glass cooler to the bar (see photo). When it comes to entertainment, there’s a no expense spent attitude, with The Martin Lewis Money Show playing silently on a TV, for absolutely no apparent reason whatsoever, power ballads playing loudly over the gramophone.
Ales: a very nice barmaid indeed was serving up Pride, so I opted for a pint of Neck Oil at £6.50; if only I could have asked the advice of Martin Lewis.
This really isn’t a great place. The heritage value lifts the grade by a point or two, but otherwise it’s not worth a special visit.

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

Rather an austere external appearance, and although the interior under quite a tall ceiling has mid-brown wood panelling it doesn't feel particularly welcoming either. Little changed from my last visit about ten years ago, and - as expected - just Doom Bar Pride (£4.80) from the pair of handpumps. However, having said all that, the atmosphere on Christmas Eve was better than I remembered so the rating nudged up a notch accordingly.

Strange small pub this one. A small wood panelled ground floor room well described by previous reviewers with a first-floor restaurant room. I guess it focusses on the weekday lunchtime trade as there wasn’t a lot of people in enjoying the high tables and stools when I popped in on Saturday night.
Same two beers on in the form of London Pride and Doombore and the Pride was just about passable.
Due to it being located opposite the Duke Street entrance of Selfridge's its handy for a quick pint when your better half gets stuck in the clothes floor of said department store and demands additional browsing time, and especially as there isn’t really anything else much better in the Immediate vicinity.
