Basic London boozer with bar in front of you on entrance. TVs and a dartboard to the left - the landlady was practising her skills whilst I was there.

This basic estate like pub had a good atmosphere on my recent visit and I found the barmaid to be very polite. There is no real ale, but there is a standard draught selection and my Guinness was very well served.

There is a plasma screen and Sky Sports is shown and there is also a pool table and a dartboard found at the rear. The walls are adorned with framed front pages of newspapers charting the modern history of the USA which I found quite interesting in a nothing better to do kind of way.

I would have stayed longer as I liked it in here, but unfortunately there is a pub cat that was strutting up and down the bar and I'm allergic to the pesky little things.
