First time to visit this fantastic bank conversion, since McMullens bought it off Fullers and I couldn’t see any changes from the Fullers days, except for AK clips where Pride and ESB used to be. AK is not my favourite tipple but I’ll suffer a pint of it for this interior.

A former regular haunt and not visited since the early 2000s. The interior was rather grand but appears to have undergone a bit of hipsterfication, judging by the photos on the McMullen's website. One of the main reasons to visit is the high, grand peripheral gallery which affords commanding views out over the hoi polloi drinking below ;-).

I paid my first visit to this magnificent pub since its fairly recent takeover by McMullens. Four handpumps were clipped, but seeing my interest in them the barman immediately told me that McMullen's AK and IPA were "coming soon", leaving only McMullen's Country, and London Pride for some reason. That's not particularly good for a pub of this size. On the plus side, the helpful barman checked the availability with the kitchen of a particular sandwich that Mrs R ordered as it was showing as unavailable on the till. Sandwiches were around £7 or £8 as I recall.

As far as I could tell McMullen's haven't made any changes to it, and I can't imagine why they would want to. This is still one of the more spectacular pubs around, even if it wasn't originally built as a pub.
