Nothing special about this one. Bar to left, two hand pumps, one reversed. Various TV screens. Will not be returning.

A large corner pub divided into two bars, the front bar slightly more pubby, but not a lot than the larger more dimly lit rear area that had a couple of Tv screens showing muted football. The furniture is as described by Rex a couple of years ago. Three handpumps on the bar with two operational serving the same duo also mentioned by rex, Doombar and London Gold, the latter being in not particularly good shape.I only came in here due to the early opening,10:00 on a Sunday, I'll catch a later train next time.

This looks to be as much a restaurant as a pub, but there were a couple of ales on - Young's London Gold (£1.85 a half), and Doom Bar of course. I did see clipboard menus on some of the tables, but there wasn't one where I sat so I didn't get to peruse one. But I did see meals delivered to the occupants of the next table, and all the food looked OK. It was obviously served on blocks of wood rather than plates. A lot of the tables were laid for diners.

I didn't see any of what I would regard as traditional furnishings. Along the front of the room was a rank of upholstered bench booths; in the middle of the room were loads of tall tables/tall stools, and at the window were some banquettes with pedestal tables and some standard chairs. I sat at the window of course, where my table was overly sticky (but maybe I was just unlucky), and where the banquettes were too low for the tables. The normal chairs had their backs to the room, which feels a bit odd if one is on one’s own. Everything looks uber modern in here, from the copper lightshades on the lamps suspended above the booths, to the exposed brickwork on the back wall and the bar counter front. To add to this, there was a popcorn machine at one end of the bar counter. All the tables had a little vase of flowers on them; there were a couple of TVs (only one on, and muted); and some unnecessary pop music was playing.

My feeling was that this bar was more appearance over substance. It seemed a cross between a canteen and an American diner. On the one hand it looked OK (as long as you like these massively madeover places), but I didn’t feel that it was particularly comfortable here. But maybe that’s just me; anyway, I won’t be rushing back.
