Bucking Fastard left this review about The Enterprise

A traditional frontage with two doors gives access to an open plan interior which does retain some decent features.Along the left wall there are a series of large mirrors hung against some good glazed tiling,below which are a rank of traditional tables.The window recess has green leather bound sofas,while the rear section continues this theme with high backed bench seating ,smaller mirrors and a door to a rear partly covered courtyard.The bar in the middle right of the building has some pleasing wood features and some etched glass,while the dark wooden floor throughout goes well with the green wall coverings.There is ephemera dotted about,dog fighting models of a Spitfire and Messerschmitt ,a small sky light and fairy lighting is used extensively and gives chic character.
The soundtrack was first class and played at a sensible volume and really enhanced my visit.Food is burgers and tapas,there is a shooters menu at £3.90. The 4 handpumps were drawing St Austell Proper Job,Doom Bar,Purity UBU and Dark Star Hophead (NBSS 2.5).
Probably more a young persons bar,but there is enough to justify a visit if in the area.

A decent London pub with eclectic decor within. Quite characterful and I walked into a busy pub quiz. sadly only fairly boring ales available- Ubu, Hophead and Doom Bar.

An attractive and highly decorated Victorian pub as described below, though I wouldn't describe it as a gastropub. I'd been here once before about 7 years ago and enjoyed it then though being a Friday, it was very full and noisy.

A return visit early week and things are quieter. The duelling RFC and Luftwaffe bi-planes as well as a monoplane hang overhead but the interior - which features stuffed fish in cabinets above the picture rail to the rear - is spoilt somewhat by the aircon units; the gent's also features the increasingly popular urinal video game. Ales: Sharp's Doom Bar, St. Austell's Tribute and Purity's Ubu at £4.20 which didn't taste right. I wonder if it had the wrong clip?

Certainly worth a visit but not a detour, this isn't a must-do pub, though at least we were in when jazz and blues is playing.
