Real Ale Ray left this review about The Raven

Looking at the old picture of this pub, I can see from my visit that the new pub company have taken away the complete frontage of the old pub and have constructed a new front that receeds back from the pavement by about one metre. The interior had an island bar with 13 keg beers dispensed from a central stainless steel column in the middle of the bar. The bar area was finished in oak and the perimeter walls also had oak panelling with grey painted walls. There was green leather banquette seating along high tables running along both sides of the room and the floor was finished in a dark timber.
The staff were all in their early 20's and were all bright and jolly and very welcoming. Six handpumps serving five cask and one cider. We went for the Gorgeous Brewery Goofy Hoof Pale Ale, which was excellent and worthy of a second pint.

Fortunately there were quite a few in just having a drink on this early evening visit, but I can see the comments that this place comes over a more bar / restaurant than pub.
I noticed two pumps each for Adnams Bitter and Broadside and then also Ghost ship, and my pint of Broadside was fine enough. I will add myself to the list who find it strange that this is the type of place that Adnams would choose as their only outlet in London. As I can take or leave Adnams beers I can’t see myself returning to this one over some of the more true pub experiences close by.
