Not a bad pub but no ales on during my Sunday dinner visit! Had some type of craft ale but at £5.05 for 2 thirds of a pint I only had one!

A first in here the other night and surprisingly it is indeed, as mentioned below, better than one would expect. Largely devoid of tourists, despite its close proximity to the self-styled 221b (in reality 239, the former Abbey House down the road is the real 221) to the south and seemingly free from Westminster University students; customers seemed to be younger and more fashionable and not drawn from offices.
The interior is not multi-roomed, rather multi-zoned with a snug to the rear with a fireplace, sadly not used. The floor is bare boarded and furniture is largely conventional. The ceiling has beams (more likely exposed rafters), the colour scheme is the hackneyed dark blue/grey as to be expected; the bar top is copper, which is a bit naff though fortunately the lighting is gloomy enough so that it doesn't stand out too much; music played at an agreeable level.
Friendly staff were serving Sharp's Doom Bar, Greene King's Mighty Moose, Ilkley Brewery's Mary Jane and Truman's Zephyr at a fairly reasonable (for the area) £4.30 a pint and good.
I quite liked this place and would be happy to return if passing; the seven-day midnight licence is a bonus. It's miles better than The Globe down the road and superior to The Allsop Arms across the way.

Much better than you have any right to expect, next to the tourist hoardes or 221B.

Four real ales on. I went for an absolute superb Redemption Urban Dusk. Easily the best pint of the day and one to look out for again.

Very busy - efficient staff. Good atmosphere.
