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.

Anyone stepping out of their time machine and heading for what was the former Ben Crouch Tavern will be in for a hefty shock when they discover what is now the Adam and Eve. Long gone is the gothic creation from which you expect Dr Phibes to burst up through the floor or Bela Lugosi’s silhouetted figure in the lightning etched windows. Instead you will now find a swanky gastrobar for trendies with swish décor, chic furnishings, modern art and a more than a large dollop of pretentiousness.

The interior is divided into the “drinking” section at the front where you will share your table with a full compliment of condiments in case you require a dip into their bar food menu whilst the roped of rear section is reserved for the full on diners. A couple of muted TV’s didn’t really seem to be aimed any particular prospective audience and music was more intrusive than ambient.

If its beer you are after, there wasn’t much to get excited about with just Adnams Bitter available on the ale front (£3.50) and 2 other handpumps with reversed clips for Doom Bar and Youngs Gold. The quality of the Adnams was quite poor and I’m guessing that most visitors opt for the upmarket lagers or a chardonnay.

The only thing that it seems to have retained from its previous existence is attempt at horror, albeit from a different angle.. It may be a Garden of Eden for some but no tempting apples to make me want to return.
