Proper pub full of proper pub people. Lively and busy on a Monday night. Obviously well worth a visit even if just for the top class mild (highly recommended by a regular at the bar, and he wasn’t wrong)

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Harp

Thankfully, the Harp has retained its reputation following the Fuller's takeover, so always very crowded after work (and generally busy at other times) but well worth venturing inside to get a first-class pint from the ten handpumps. On this visit, I found the usual excellent mix of regular ales such as Pride, Harvey's and Hophead and ever-changing guests in a variety of styles (e.g. Tankleys English Golden Ale - sensibly advised in advance to be naturally hazy and more expensive than usual at £4.60 due to 5.7% strength). The building has a narrow frontage with fully opening windows, and the bar itself is pretty compact (and a tight squeeze to get to the back). However, the staff are notably efficient, so once you make it to the counter you get served quickly. However, there is also an upstairs room with more seating which is usually much calmer (and also a back door to a rather dingy alleyway if all else fails). Justifiably a local and national Camra award winner, and thoroughly recommended (albeit with the caveat that it can be a victim of its own success insofar as getting often so busy as to be distinctly uncomfortable).

Now a Fullers house but still has a wide range of ales on, not from Fullers.

A real must visit pub but pick your time to visit carefully. I last came on a Saturday afternoon and it was too busy to be comfortable. 10pm on a Monday night and I got a seat.
