As Quinno describes below as my visit I presume was very close to his, I only called in on my way to the train station because the heavens opened and I could see the Chelsea v Watford match just starting, that combined with the fact Oakham Citra was on, I stayed for a couple, other beers available were Marstons 61 Deep and Fullers ESB. Not a pub I would make a habit of visiting in the future.

A knocked-around place that nowadays I guess can label itself as being on-trend. A pub in two halves, to the left is a gloomy dark grey painted main bar with modern laminate flooring and a partly collapsing ceiling. Six pumps here with four ales and a cider available. The Oakham Citra spluttered and died so a fair half of St Austell Pepper Job (NBSS 2.5) for £2.40 made do. The other potential choices were Timothy Taylor Landlord and Black Sheep Holy Grail along with Orchard Pig Ginger & Chilli cider. The right hand area was a bit brighter with a collection of fairly atrocious canvas at art prints, a carpet that should be condemned and a giant jumbo drop down screen showing the BT Sport footy results to nobody (having never witnessed their attempt at final score before, I can’t say that I am surprised). The commentary from the telly crashed into the piped music in the front area for maximum aural terrorism. It all felt rather futile in here, a classic underperforming Zone 1 London pub.

I haven't been in this pub for many years, and I don't reckon I've missed much. On a wet and cold day in April this pub didn't do much to raise my spirits. It seemed quite gloomy inside, with just a half dozen or so punters spread about the place, probably as refugees from the rain. It's a fairly large pub, and essentially unchanged since previous reviewers' visits

But they did have three ales on, with a further three handpumps unclipped. The three ales on were Timothoty Taylor Landlord, Theakston's Old Peculiar, and Oakham Citra (£2.20 a half and in good shape).

I seem to remember a much more lively pub when I visited it some 15 - 20 years ago. But on a less miserable day, or in the evenings perhaps, it's hopefully a much more welcoming pub.
