Brutalist building in an area of similar architecture, its a little tucked away and hard to find in an area not easy to navigate. Large bar inside on 2 floors, traditional pub inside despite the age and area. Ok

The Wood Street Bar & Restaurant is situated in the Barbican complex. It's not exactly easy to locate. When I eventually found it, I recognised it from previous strolls around the area I'd enjoyed.

It was shortly after midday and I was the first customer. Whilst there an elderly gent came in for a pint and another couple of younger lads came in for a game of pool and some shorts.

The bar has 6 handpulls, dispensing Purity Mad Goose and a guest. This was Big Smoke Solaris. A third handpull was clipped with Harvey's Sussex Best Bitter, but this was off. A fourth had Weston's Rosie's Pig cider.

Service was pleasant enough, but £3 for a half of cider seemed a bit excessive.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Wood Street Bar

Nothing much to look at from the front, but the rear of this comfortable bar / restaurant overlooks one of the main Barbican water features. Semi-traditional furniture and decor. Shepherd Neame appears to be its beer supplier, with Whitstable Bay (£4.10), Spitfire, Bishops Finger and Samuel Adams Blonde Ambition plus Thatcher's Heritage cider available from five of the six handpumps. Overall, rather better than I was expecting.
