An early Victorian pub situated in a rather unprepossessing area north of Marylebone Road but south of the rather more upmarket St. John's Wood, though ideally situated opposite Seashell, Britain's best fish 'n' chip shop, the other night was a first in here for us to what was until recently a rather uninviting dowdy locals' pub.
It has now been done up and scrubbed, with the retention of the inter war years ground floor tiling with an old and faded Watney Combe Reid sign clinging on for life to the corner splay. Inside it's quite small and basic with a bar to the rear. There's plenty of bare brick with some white paintwork; exposed metal electrical trunking climbs the walls and traverses the ceiling from which hang the aforementioned dreadful hipster filament lights with semi-industrial metal shades. The bar back is essentially shelving for bottles and there's one of those tedious square section tubular steel gantries. The floor is bare boarded, the bar front is t 'n' g, furniture is mixed conventional high and low and a TV on high broadcast Casualty with the sound down for no apparent purpose - at least Stevie Wonder was wafting out from the gramophone. The place really is rather dull with few customers, though young and studenty, and indeed a bit zombie-like.
Ales: lots of craft stuff but now no real ale, despite it being advertised on their website. I opted for a half of Camden Hells lager which blew a £2.80 hole in my wallet.
I've certainly been in worse pubs than this but can't recall one as dull. I agree with Quinno's rating but the removal of real ale must inevitably result in an even lower grade, especially with such high prices.

Closed on Sundays.

Small, spartan and charmless knocked-through corner pub. Wood floor, white paint and a single exposed brick wall indeed almost nothing of interest in decor items bar some of those dreadful hipster filament lights. Three pumps and only a mediocre St Austell Tribute on, laughably priced at £2.20 served up by a cloth-eared barman who I assume was struggling to hear me over the deafening Coldplay assaulting our ears. There’s also some craft stuff so lord knows how much they’ll try and con you for that. Clientèle consisted almost solely of squawking 20somethings who seemed more interested in posing than drinking. It's rare to find somewhere so utterly functional and zombie-like a pub as this one. Terrible.

The edges have been smoothed since the last review.Has had a makeover and is now a one room exposed brick craft beer bar.Only two cask beers from St Austell and about a dozen keg beers from Canopy.Orbit,Kernal,Camden and Hammertons. Reasonably priced for now.Nice modern toilets.Quiet on my visit and lacked warmth but best around this area.
