Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Two Brewers

Corner pub with rather plain dark tiling on the facades and windows with a 1930s look to them, so probably a refit of an older building? The rectangular interior seems rather retro too, with mostly dark wood and paintwork around the servery (although there is a fair amount of window space too, so not exactly oppressive). Dartboard at the far end, and a few small outdoor tables to the side. Fairly mainstream selection of real ales from the four handpumps: Doom Bar, Landlord, Purity Mad Goose and Harvey's (£4.50). A slightly old-fashioned boozer, but none the worse for that.

A street corner boozer with a rather harsh exterior due to the black glazed tiles.The interior has been over decorated and lacks charm.Various shades of blue have been used throughout and furniture close to the bar sparse apart from a line of bar stools along the servery,which just highlights the dark flooring.A rear wood panelled section away from the bar is however crammed with furniture which also obscures the darts throw despite there being an electric score board.Maybe they were expecting a lot of custom,but I was the only punter in on a Saturday lunchtime.
There are 4 handpumps drawing on my trip TT Landlord,London Pride ,Purity Pure Gold and Mad Goose (too warm but drinkable)
It's functional but dull,not a lot of character despite a few original features.

This is a locals', hipsters' and office workers' pub, and it's really very nice with quite a smart interior, lacquered floor, some leaded lights, lots of dark wood and an attractive leaded stained glass pot shelf. At the far end there's a dartboard. As Rex mentions, the pub doesn't do food but there's a nice fish 'n' chip shop around the corner so BYO food. In short, it's a boozer.
Ales: Timothy Taylor's Landlord, Truman's Swift, Sharp's Doom Bar, Purity's Pure Ubu and Mad Goose which was fine, though cost £4.50 a pint. Ales here are in consistently good nick and there's a very friendly and attentive barmaid.
I would make a point of coming here again if in this postcode.
