This was our pub of choice having just watched the epic RAF100 Flypast. This isn’t a great location to look for pubs but necessity is the mother of intoxication and if you stand outside, you can get a good look at the Jacob Epstein sculptures that adorn the façade of Charles Holden’s magnificent 55 Broadway.
This is otherwise a fairly typical Nicholson’s pub, holding few surprises with a mixture of the old and new: some late Victorian features sit alongside wood panelling with modern bare brick with conventional furniture, high and low. Basically, it’s a large room with a slightly elevated area to the rear beneath a lantern which was perhaps once above a billiards table. In all, a bit corporate with the addition of gaming machines flashing away.
Staff are a bit aloof which is to be expected in a central London pub though the ale choice was better than expected with awful Doom Bar, a Nicholson’s-branded ale but thereafter four from Thornbridge with one above 6% ABV though as I’m not a meths drinker, I opted for their Crackendale which was light and refreshing on a hot day and well kept too. I didn’t recall the price as we were in rounds, but I would imagine it was higher than average.
This is a perfectly tolerable average pub which fulfils a necessity, but I wouldn’t beat a path to get here.

Standard Nicholson's pub with one large room. Eight hand pumps with one turned round but unfortunately nothing above 4.5% ABV on my visit.

Situated close to St James tube, this is a Nicholson’s house with the chain’s usual faux-Edwardian style décor, though some genuine originality can be seen at the front entrance with lovely leaded and stained glasswork. Layout-wise, there’s a drinking area at front the front of the pub and a separate raised lounge area at the rear with wood panelling and unused feature fireplace. I sat in the rear area and felt quite posh - but unfortunately the lights were suddenly dimmed and a candle was plonked on my table meaning I could no longer read my book, the area feeling gloomy rather than atmospheric. Eight ales on; the ubiquitous Doom Bar, a West Berks rugby-themed beer (bit late for that!?), St Austell Nicholson Pale, Truman's Runner, Caledonian Autumn Red, Wadworth 6X and two house beers – these were from Truman's with a festive theme and appeared to be properly-done batches rather than a dodgy re-badge. 3 Wise Hops (ho-ho) and Yule Star Xmas Stout. I went for the latter and got an excellent festive-tasting ale for 2 quid a half – not too bad at all by the standards of the area. Overall, cheaper and generally better-run at the bar than the Sanctuary so gets my vote for the St James area.
