Basic pub with the bar to the right. Couple of weak hand pumps - rest keg. Would not return.

I was in here on 4 Jan at around 7.00 PM, and like aqualung found that they only had Best and Old on, with a couple of pumps unused. But my pint of Old was in very poor condition - undrinkable in my opinion. The barman wasn't happy about changing it - he tried it, and then said he didn't see how it could be off as there were still several gallons left in the barrel. But I was accompanied by several CAMRA colleagues who are experts on beer quality, and they too tried it and supported my opinion. But full marks to the landlord who then changed the barrel and produced an excellent pint of Old for me, instead of taking the easy option of giving me a pint of Best and leaving the same barrel of Old on in the hope that less discerning drinkers would accept it.

The pub is as described by aqualung - fairly standard furnishings and a bit minimalist in a modern way. But it was doing a good trade on the Wednesday evening I was in, and was anything but a bit dead. I would hope that the beer issue was just a one-off and that I was just unlucky; and it was dealt with professionally after a bit of encouragement. Another ale from Harvey's range would be a big plus, but of course they can only stock the range that the custom will support. But I would certainly be happy to visit this pub again.

As mentioned below this was formerly the Circle Bar but prior to that it was an Ind Coope pub called the Coach and Horses. It's a fairly typical London corner pub with a ground floor area much larger then the two storeys above. Inside it's an L shaped room with wooden floors having been renovated in the current vogue. It's now a Harvey's pub and like their other two London outlets has a function room advertised. There is a solitary TV at the rear which had subtitles and a quiz advertised for Monday. The place was almost empty on my early Thursday afternoon visit.
Although the bar has four hand pumps only Best and Old were available with two unused. I went for the Old (£3.30) which was in good nick and a surprisingly reasonable price for London. It's not a bad place but seemed a bit dead. I suspect it does a better trade in the evening and weekends.
