Greene King pub with one room and bar to the right. Four hand pumps, two of which were reversed and the other two weak in strength. TV to rear.

A traditional Taylor Walker pub just off of Oxford Street, it’s a welcome oasis away from the hustle and bustle a few yards away and has a few picnic benches outside as well. The pub is split over two levels with the upper floor having somewhat less character and being used mainly as an overflow, although there is also a small bar counter up here.

Décor wise it’s quite traditional with a dark red embossed ceiling whilst the flooring at the front of the pub is mostly wood strip with some black and white chequered tiles in front of the bar counter, and a raised area up a step or two at the rear was carpeted. This is the cosiest part of the pub with bookcase style wallpaper on the walls, a disused fire-place at the rear and button back red banquette seating. A number of black and white photographs on the walls showed various London scenes from the 60’s. A couple of plasma screens were showing a sports channel (one was mounted in a gold picture frame!), but the volume was off so this was not too intrusive. A few flags hanging in the window and above the bar suggest that the forthcoming world cup rugby will be screened.

The menu offered an extensive selection of pub grub dishes such as ham egg & chips, fish & chips, sausage & mash and hunter’s chicken as well as a number of pies and burgers. Most of the main courses appeared to be priced in the £10 - £12 range which is probably not unreasonable for the area, and I lost count of the number of times the barmaid had to explain the concept of ordering at the bar to the tourists who wandered in, as well as the difference between garden and mushy peas.

Beers on tap were TEA and England’s Glory from Hogsback along with Taylor Walker 1730 and Greene King IPA. The solitary cider was Aspall’s Suffolk which seems a bit of a missed opportunity – considering how many of the punters are likely to have never tried cider before, why have something on that will put them off for life once they’ve tasted it?

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Spread Eagle

Typical dark wood Taylor Walker interior, with additional seating at the back up one annoying step. Red painted tiled ceiling. Two large TV screens. Upstairs dining room. Patio seating out front. Usually well staffed. Four handpumps, offering Pride, Jennings Cumberland, London Fields Blonde and Madness Lovestruck on this visit.
