I used to frequent this pub in the evening, and have four beers at the most - not heavy drinking. After a long day in the office, it was relaxing to hear a man playing the piano in the rear bar. It was mainly frequented by tourists with the exception of two Dutch sailors. I ended up often talking to them over my beer, as tourists came and went. This was good for a few months, until one evening, they told me I was not a regular, and was unwelcome in the pub. This I resented - they were the only other regulars, I was always well behaved, and any complaints should be put to management. I continued to go there the occasional evening, and stay alone. After a short period, they animosity of them being there got to me. That was that! it is a shame, as so many central London pubs i have frequented have been so welcoming. I will review others, and apologise for any pessimism. Thanks...

Not sure what to make of this pub. Nice decor, dark wood and dark red wallpaper. Has an upstairs area that can be booked. As with all Fullers pubs, there own ales are kings. The staff are friendly. I can't think of anything to fault it. One good touch, it has an outside seating area at the front and a large TV inside the front window facing out, probably very popular during sporting occasions. Food seemed to be served all day, well at least up to 4.30 when I was there.

I first visited here about 25 years ago but found it a little disappointing on this visit. The location on Bayswater Road makes it something of a tourist trap. Inside it's vanilla old pub but with rather poor beer and service.
