A small,charming looking Greene King street corner pub ,opening out onto the pedestrianised Queen Square,it's very much a locals boozer.The interior is traditional with much wood panelling,narrow bench seating around the edge and lots of exterior seating.Theatre and musical posters decorate the walls ,and the three sided bar allows for quick service.There is an upstairs lounge,unvisited by me while the pub grub menu is a simple laminated sheet rather than the grotesquely large GK corporate menu normally seen.
My guess is that this is a GK Local Hero's tie ,with lots of discretion for the lessee and the only requirement to stocks as many GK boring beers (GK IPA and Yardbird Pale on my trip) as there are guests ( Redemption Hotspur and Oakham Bishops Farewell (clear but badly conditioned tasted nothing like Bishops and rip off £2.50 half))
Calm muzak and lots of banter from the regulars,I noticed the cougaresque barmaid slipping a cheeky half down when it was momentarily quiet.
A far better pub than the nearby Swan,shame about the ale quality which knocked off a couple of points from what otherwise would have been a good visit.

A surprisingly traditional tiny pub with bare boards, a red panelled ceiling, Art Deco lights, pot shelf and dark wood panelling; furniture is traditional. Walls are covered with theatre posters and there's an upstairs lounge too. The pub still has optics which speeds up service no end as staff don't spend hours measuring spirits into metal measures and from there to the glass.
There's a friendly vibe in here with a mixture of locals, studenty types and tourists.
Ales on offer were Greene King's Abbot and IPA, Redemption's Hopspur and Cosmic English Pale Ale which was rather dull and a no joke at £2.40 a half.

I'd come here again but have docked two points due to the pub being dog friendly and also for the sky high prices for mediocre ale.

Very small corner pub which actually has considerably more seating provided by the bench seating outside under the canopys than is available inside the pub. Lively mixed crowd both inside and outside on this last Friday evening before Christmas and there were actually twice as many bar keeps working the small serving space than there was along the entire long bar of the Swan next door , so there was absolutely no queuing at the bar.
There are four ales usually available, but for our visit on entering one was reverse clipped, but fortunately it was the dreaded GK IPA (how we cheered ). This left Abbott Reserve from the GK stable, a bit too loopy at 6.5% for an extended session, and Redemption Hopspur and Woodforde's Wherry, the latter two being in excellent condition.
Small but lively pub with well-kept choice of ales and good service levels. You have to go a long way to find a better pub than this in Bloomsbury.
