A basic but decent pub and I found the beer range to be a little less exciting than I was expecting maybe due to being visited during the Christmas break and festive offerings taking the place of more interesting guest beers.My Timothy Taylor's Landlord was in good condition albeit a little ordinary tasting. Worth a look if passing by though.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Nellie Dean of Soho

Attractive Soho corner pub, but will a distinctly cramped interior so probably best tried at a quieter time of day otherwise you may find a hundred people standing out in the road (and not just the pavement) outside. There is also an upstairs bar (with no real ale), but this is largely taken up by a pool table. Young crowd. Five handpumps, with the regular Doom Bar, Pride and TT Landlord supplemented by Redemption Trinity and Cronx Kotchin (£3.60) on my last visit.

There were five ales on in here – Timothy Taylor Haversake Ale, Cottage Brewery Carnival Ale, Adnam’s Ghost Ship and our old chums Doom Bar and London Pride. Food menus are on rolled up sheets stuck in a glass on the tables – and the prices are jolly reasonable for the area. Sarnies are £2.90 a throw, with main meals between £5.50 and £7. The pub standard of sausages and mash is £5.50.

The pub looks good from the outside with masses of foliage flowing from the hanging baskets. There are more plants inside on the shelf under the windows. Inside it’s a tiny one-room affair downstairs, and although I saw a sign pointing to further seating upstairs I didn’t venture up there. The toilets are downstairs, down a narrow and dangerous flight of stairs which would give those in the Nell Gwynne a run for their money. Furnishings in the main bar are grubby looking banquattes and small stools, combined with round metal framed tables. There was a mix of punters in on Wednesday afternoon – two or three regulars at the bar, and some tourists that had advisedly, and probably only temporarily, escaped the hell of Oxford St.

I liked this pub a lot. It seemed a small oasis among the many bogstandard pubs that this area has. A couple of Victorian cast iron pillars and a Lincrusta style ceiling added to the attraction for me. With five ales on, including a couple that I had not seen before, this pub is definitely worth a visit.
