Tris C left this review about The Conductor

A bar occupying part of the ground floor of 1 Fleet Place, designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill, architects behind Chicago's Sears Tower and once the world's tallest building - it's unlikely that this bar will garner any accolades though.
For one, we didn't spot any name applied to the venue so had to wander off to check it amongst the other similar attractions in this part of the City, but no, as it turned out we were right first time round. There's a patio garden of sorts with drinkers seated either beneath a pergola or spilling out into the small piazza. Inside, and it's the typical modern bar, so easy to imagine but with a DJ spinning virtual digital discs from a device at very high volume. There's a large bar with several so-called 'craft' keg products with lots of cans and bottles but no real ale, which comes as a bit of a shock as this is a Fuller's outlet. It's clearly aimed at the younger drinker; my friend and I were the oldest punters and only in here due to this having been chosen by a third party as a meet-up place. The general interior theme is one of pale wood panelling and modern vinyl-clad banquettes with the odd knick-knack dotted around, such as an old paraffin hazard lamp.
My pints of Beavertown's Neck Oil was about as good as it's ever going to get, though I didn't clock the price as they were bought for me but I'll bet it must have cost a fortune.
This is very much a bar for the young and if you want Fuller's real ale in an attractive genuine pub, the Viaduct Tavern is a short walk from here.
