Well described by MaldenMan, below, this is the sister pub to the Shakespeare, about half a mile away. We enjoyed a great team meal, well cooked and delivered by friendly, well-trained staff. Ales on were Nicholson IPA, Purity Ubu and Mad Goose, and London Pride, all in good condition. I’d be very happy to come back any time and would include in a crawl.

Impressive Nicholson's pub which is very handy for Snow Hill station and I call in quite often before getting my train home. It always seems to be busy and I have never had a bad pint in here. There is also usually a good choice of beers on. I remember how bad this pub was before Nicholson's took it over! Well worth a visit in my opinion.

Typical Nicholson's pub with a rather poor beer selection,only a choice of four beers, that said my Yorkshire Brewery Blackout porter was a decent beer, the food was also decent despite the best part of a half hour wait. A pub that serves its purpose but one I wouldn't rush back to.
