Street corner Nicholson's house split into two rooms ,each with their own servery.The larger is square and has fully opening window frames along one wall,wood panelled throughout and with two display cabinets inset at one end.All very traditional with red leather bench seating .The smaller room carries on with the same theme,with a series of prints on the far wall.There is also an upstairs dining room and a cellar bar,both unvisited by me.
Covid regulations were strictly applied,T&T QR code details,shown to your table,less furniture than usual and pleasingly the half pricing on food was still in operation despite the ending of Eat Out to Help Out on my Wednesday lunchtime visit.
There are 5 handpumps but the selection has been dumbed down to London Pride,Doom Bar and Nicholsons (St Austell) Pale (decent enough but £5.40 ).The flatscreens were on mute and the service was efficient and friendly.
With a better ale range ,this would have been a very decent visit and good to see it open while the GK Goat Tavern over the road remained resolutely closed.

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

Not a bad size for a Nicholson's pub, with two, partly opened-out main rooms at ground floor level plus a cellar bar and the Shelley dining room upstairs. Given how close it is to Piccadilly and the large number of people usually to be found outside on the pavement, it never seems too crowded inside even at busy times of day (e.g. early weekday evening). Five duplicated handpumps on each counter in the main bar offering NPA, Doom Bar, Pride, Rev James Gold (£4.60) and Summer Lightning on this visit. The smaller bars downstairs and on the first floor each usually have a couple of the same beers.

Routine West End boozer which does M&B's Nicholson's brand no credit. Very noisy even when it's not too busy. And service is disorganised, too much nattering and ignoring the right hand bar, and in four rounds we never got a full pint without asking. Nicholson's (ie St Austell) Pale the best bet of a mundane range.
