This is still a Fuller's pub, and is still largely as described by the previous reviewer. However I visited for a bite to eat at lunchtime so wasn't assaulted by the Rolling Stones music blaring out. But if the Cockroaches were playing a live gig there I would certainly want to be there. I was a bit luckier on the beer front, with the superb Dark Star Revelation (£4.80 a pint) on as well as London Pride of course. They also advertised beer of some kind "from the tank", with said tanks suspended above the servery. I gave that a swerve. Being a Fuller's pub they do food at weekday lunchtime, and I went for an Applewood smoked cheddar & balsamic onion sandwich that came with salted (ugh!) chips. It cost a bit over £8 as I recall.

The pub itself looks very attractive from the outside with its unusual curved frontage. The main arched windows are now all plain glass, but the small leaded light panes above look to have the original glazing in them. The main corner doors also have glazed panels, with blue bands and flowers (poppies I think) in the central roundels.

It's opened up and modernised inside, and with more exposed brickwork that was always intended to be covered by something more attractive, such as wood panelling perhaps. There are a couple of illuminated flying horses - Pegasus? - on one of the walls. Not sure why they're there; maybe Fuller's wanted Griffins and ended up with Pegasus? On another wall there were 78rpm vinyl records, along with what looked like cartoons of flying birds. It's all quite bizarre.

This place clearly has upmarket aspirations, as evidenced by the flowers in jars on the tables, bit I'm not sure if it really worked. On the plus side the windows let in plenty of natural light, and my pint of Revelation was in excellent condition. I found it a comfortable enough place to stop for a pint and bite to eat.

A first in here last Saturday in what was originally The Distillers' Arms. Much as described below, but this isn't a gastropub, rather it's an opened out pub with contemporary décor, décor that's too contemporary for my liking, giving the place more an appearance of a wine bar than pub with acres of roughhewn bare brick walls and an end wall bedecked with old vinyl LPs.
A Fuller's pub, so you know exactly what to expect by the numbers, the bar features a tiled apron and there are some columns with ornate capitals; furniture is mixed but contemporary.
The gaff features live acoustic/amplified music on a Saturday night and yesterday was no exception, but on entering we were near deafened by the pounding sound of The Rolling Stones on the gramophone, which was simply too loud to be pleasant; the pub wasn't that full so my guess is that the locals knew something we didn't.
A so-so pint of London Pride and then we were off - I can't find reason to recommend this place and the aforementioned upstairs bar was closed.
