This is a must visit for it's CAMRA listed interior ,and traditional mews pub atmosphere.Although the apex curved door is the obvious way in,the side entrance along Craven Terrace is magnificent with original glazed tiling,staircase to the first floor dining room,etched glass doors to what was originally a Ladies Bar and a Private Bar .Sadly the internal room dividers have been lost but the Private Bar serving hatch still exists but glazed over.Outside by this side entrance are steps down to Old Mary's cocktail lounge housed in a basement but not open on my lunchtime trip.The food menu seemed traditional pub fare at a slight premium as you might expect given the location.
Back to the apex front door both sides have traditional features with a bench seat to the left and modern dining tables to the right,the flooring wooden throughout and parquet where the two snugs were on the right.Winding around the left side you enter into a high ceiling back lounge which then leads to a snug infront of a bar access area and finally an etched glass door to the side exit on Craven Terrace.The picture window frames are noteworthy throughout,with a clever design pattern at the top.
Being a Young's house,their Original was doubled up but thankfully there was a Proper Job alternative which saved the visit
(NBSS 3,£ 5.40).There was some craft keg from the likes of Beavertown which may also help.The constant muzak was bearable and there is a charming outside terrace with small tables high above a rapidly descending Lancaster Mews which is sufficient for me to classify this pub as a mews pub.One not to be missed in the area.

Just when you thought that there was no such thing as a decent pub in Bayswater, along comes this, a CAMRA Regionally Important Historic Interior specimen now shorn of it's Whitbread deer's head sign logo.
The name in etched glass to the entrance and into a pub with a modern boarded floor with some carpeting, fantastic etched and cut glass mirrored bar back with a lovely gilded carved cornice. A side snug features an ornate fireplace with scrolling and gas flame fire. Furniture is traditional and pubby with lighting coming mainly from Victorian-style hanging glass teardrop lanterns. There's another sort of lantern with stained glass in the rear room, which was probably once over a billiards table. Muted music played and there was a good vibe in here with a mixed crowd of locals and tourists; the pub is clearly very gay friendly, judging by the party at the table next to me.
Ales: the usual Young's suspects with Proper Job as guest and no-brainer. It did have a slightly odd taste, as if the barmaid had spaffed a slug of lemonade into it, drinkable but not exceptional.
This is a good solid Victorian boozer and I'd have no problem making a beeline for it if in W2, not that the Mitre has anything in the way of competition in this part of the world.

A classic Victorian corner pub but with a mercilessly modernised inside front bar, although a nice counter and period style wallpaper tone it down and the barback is a real classic. Badged as a Youngs house it serves Youngs ordinary and a beer from Hackney plus a cider on the five pulls. There are also twelve keg taps with Camden, Meantime and some National brands. At the back the rooms are in a Victorian style but I didn't explore them. The pretentious use of a Victorian country house servants bell board loses it points. The beer is very well looked after it's just some of the choices seem driven by trendiness not quality. Some of the staff were exemplary.
