A better than usual Taylor Walker interior with an island bar and mirrors down 2 walls. 5 real ales and food served. Didn't visit the more formal dining area upstairs.

Thanks to being in permanent shade on the north-facing side of a hellishly busy road, and surrounded by never ending construction projects, usually of stories-high blocks of millionaires' apartments this pub looks dark, dingy and uninviting. Venture inside though and you find an original Victorian gin palace virtually untouched by the ravages of time. Roger describes it perfectly well below so I won't say it all again, but you do wonder why Spirit don't make more of it - it should surely be marketed as a destination pub, on the tourist trail for all lovers of Victoriana.

Well worth a visit.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Paxtons Head

Attractive Taylor Walker pub with an interesting facade and plenty of ornate features to admire inside. Substantial island bar dominating the main room, with five real ales on handpump - GK IPA, London Gold, Pride, Bombardier and Broadside (oddly priced at £3.63). No real ale in the Hydeaway Sports Bar downstairs, with its pool table and plenty of TV screens. Overall, it has a rather transient feel but worth a visit to look at if in the area.
