Tris C left this review about The Tiger

Strangely, a first review here for this prominently located corner pub dating from the mid-19th century. A former Whitbread pub sign remains, but otherwise the exterior has been painted up to superficially resemble a tiger.
The interior is best described as 'Anticesque' - think the Clapton Hart but with added punch and less light. What we have are exposed RSJs, rough walls, one which is partially clad with corrugated iron with a ship's porthole set into it and no discernible colour scheme aside from generally mungey and without obvious décor; indeed there's no real trace of the original pub. There's outside seating under awnings, accessed via bifold doors and a roof terrace of sorts. A bar back is modern and brutally functional and with large industrial metal shades over the bar which is rusticated field panelled, displaying eight taps for the likes of Beavertown. There's little else in the way of lighting other than some delicate white Victorian-style chandeliers powered from exposed metal trunking; most of the light seemed to come from the TVs showing the football with the sound off, so as not to compete with loud music courtesy of ChartAllstarz. Furniture is surprisingly traditional with Britannia tables and ordinary chairs where the mainly young customers were seated. There was further seating to window drinking shelves and deep recesses.
I plumped for a Neck Oil (£5.90) served by a friendly barmaid.
This isn't a great place, or perhaps it's just not aimed at the older, more traditional pub-goer, so I'll leave it to its fans.
