This was the site of the Northumberland Arms in 1767, but was rebuilt in 1926 as the Holyrood. I can’t remember what it was called when I was last in here over 30 years ago, but it wasn’t called Ben Crouch’s Tavern until around 1998; the current, more traditional name dates from 2009.
It’s now a Young’s (Geronimo) joint, which I’d find hard to describe as a pub: ‘style bar/restaurant’ is a better description (see photos and website), which sells one Young’s beer, London Original in this instance, at a pricey £2.60 a half and good. There’s sport on the TVs, many diners and lots of loud chatter.
This isn’t my sort of format, so I’ll not be retuning, but there’s worse in W1.

The interior is well described below, this pub was originally The Northumberland Arms and is currently operated by Geronimo. We were served by dim staff who were pleasant enough but just not of this planet. Four ales on, I had Sambrook's bitter which was in excellent condition and most enjoyable. The beer quality alone makes this an excellent spot for a few after-work drinks or inclusion in a crawl.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Adam & Eve

Very different from its previous incarnation as the Ben Crouch tavern, this is now an interestingly decorated bar with about half roped off as the dining area. Mostly high tables and stools, but with the inevitable leather sofa and some regular tables and chairs on the small raised area between the two doors at either end of the narrow frontage. There is also the 'Smoking Garden of Eden' outside in a little cordoned-off area of Adam and Eve Court - the alleyway at the back. The cream on brown interior signage seemed to have a vintage London Transport style (e.g. the arrows pointing to the "Loos" which were inevitably labelled "Adam" and "Eve" on the doors). There was some fairly chilled background music, but this was well chosen for the venue and played at a sensibly low volume. Three handpumps on the bar counter: Doom Bar, Youngs London Gold and Wandle (£3.80) on my latest visit.. Overall, whilst it almost certainly won't appeal to those who remember the venue from days gone by, it has a nice relaxed atmosphere and must be one of the better bets within a short distance from the mayhem that is Oxford Street.
