A very large industrial feel to the interior,with a high concrete ceiling,exposed ducting and three tanks of unpasteurised Pilsner Urquell above the front door with pipes leading to a copper vessel above the bar leading to dispense.This brought back memories of tanked beer of the 70's,as I assume a tanker must top up the vessels. We were not brave enough ( or foolish enough !) to sample this quirky feature.
The interior is noisy,and the neon signs dotted about create a bar atmosphere which the loud music amplifies,while the furniture is often metal and a bit chic.It's popular with a young drinking audience,and food is available from a rear open kitchen.
The bar is long and supports a lot of keg,but the short side by a front entrance does support 6 handpumps,and given it's GBG 2018 listed that drew the Friday afterwork visit.
One pump was unclipped leaving Sambrooks Pale (the daily cheap pint),Wandle,Thornbridge Lord Marples,Harbour Daymer Extra Pale and Siren Liquid Mistress (only fair condition,£4.50) as the ale choice.The crew sampled widely but felt that condition was below GBG standards,and given the seething nature of the interior we sloped off to the Craft Beer Co. not far away for more pleasing pints and vibe.

This is another brash Draft House pub. When we approached it there were dozens of people outside drinking in the street, but inside less than half of the tables were occupied. But it was still very noisy inside due to the overly loud music being played. To say that it's garish is an understatement. There's metal ducting covering the ceiling, which is probably no bad thing as it hides the cement ceiling to some extent, most of the hard little chairs are painted emerald green, there's an inexplicable neon sign saying "YOLK SMOKE POKE"at the back, as well as a large sign on the right saying THIRD, under which are signs stating brewing terms such as Wort, and a hanging board saying that "Tank opened 2 days ago - delivered from Czec Republic". It's all quite bizarre actually - I couldn't much sense of it. There was an open to view kitchen at the back, but I didn't get to see what sort of food they were doing.

On the plus side the ales on were Sambrook's Wandle, Siren Under Current, Windsor & Eton 90 Glorious Years, and Red Willow Seamless. The latter ale was £3.85 a pint, or a very reasonable £3.35 when the 50p a pint CAMRA discount is applied. Another plus was the big pile of London Drinkers at the end of the bar.

I really liked the beer in here, although I didn't like the pub - or bar - one bit. I don't expect to return, but I guess I could be persuaded by the prospect of some decent ale.

Horrible looking single storey building from outside, inside its a stripped back basic modern hipster bar, all the services on show. Lots of neon signs but with subdiued lighting, there is an open kitchen and the bar is in the corner. Not in any way traditional, but has a friendly but lively vibe, despite the many sited gentlemen.

6 real reals, the quality was excellent.
