I've passed this place many a time but never went in, put off by the aggressive orange colour scheme and blacked out windows. Now that the owners have had the good sense to un-black the windows and give the pub a tasteful and muted lick of 'gastropub' grey/green, I thought that perhaps we'd venture in, especially given that it was late afternoon. Originally The Birkbeck Tavern, this was renamed The Shepherd's Inn around 1981 and then The Boogaloo I don't know when. The whole pub has just had a makeover and has a rather stark interior - you can tell it's a music pub - with memorabilia on the walls and a striking Wurlitzer-style jukebox. There's a fairly small L-shaped bar to the rear right and there are also some central support columns. There's also a fairly large courtyard to the side.

Only two ales on and neither sampled because we ordered two pints of something crafty, cold and expensive before spotting the pumps: Timothy Taylor's Landlord and Adnam's Broadside.

This place isn't bad, in fact maybe it's very good at what it does, but I've never liked loud/live music venues so won't be coming here again.

I popped into here late Saturday afternoon and doubled the attendance. It certainly looked more like a music venue to me with blacked out windows and low tables that looked a little out of place on what seemed like a dance floor. The barmaid was very friendly, but there is only a standard draught range and the actual bar area is very small for the size of the pub and I can imagine quite a queue forming when it gets busier.

I have been past here on the bus late at night on my way home from other pubs and there is usually some rope segregating a smoking crowd from the public path, but there is also a courtyard out the back that leads to a large opened up garage area that has some wall sofas and tables.

The Guinness was good, but I didn't really enjoy being dragged to these places by my mates when I was younger and I'm even more averse to them now.
