This place is unchanged from previous reviewers' visits. There are sofas in a small area on the right as you enter, then plenty of standard seating separated by some round-topped archways giving a sort of crypt-like or cloistered feel about the place. Masses of bric-a-brac and curiosities on the walls are there to pique one's interest.

There are four handpumps on the tiny bar counter on the left - all were clipped during our weekday lunchtime visit, with Salopian Fault Line, 360 Single Hop, Kirkstall Dissolution IPA and South Downs Blackcurrant Cider all on. There were five of us in my group and between us we had all three real ales; all were in good shape and at an average price of £4.50 per pint. I noticed an advertisement for a "buy one get one free" happy hour after work on Monday - 5.0 PM to 6.0 PM as I recall, which seems a very good deal. As others have stated, there's a dedicated restaurant downstairs at the back with the "wait to be seated" guarding the top of the stairs. I didn't get to see a menu as we weren't eating there. What we all appreciated was the complimentary bowl of spicy peanuts plonked on our table. On a wall at the back is a board helpfully listing all the beers, including the so-called craft beers, that were on.

I don't normally go for underground drinking holes out of choice, but we all really liked this place. It helped that some natural light got into the place from the skylights above the restaurant area at the back; the excellent beer and complimentary peanuts also helped. I would certainly visit this bar again.

This is a nice bar that I have been in loads of times and forgot to review.Basement bar so it suffers from lack of daylight but is always busy mostly with diners.Nice friendly staff and always something unusual on cask.Decent bottled beer list.Lack of outside space is a problem.

A hard to find and possible a stumble across pub, a pair of stairs take you down to this multiply vaulted undercroft which is sort of separated inside into different areas without being fully divided. The bar is along a side wall towards the front, as you pass deeper inside there is a half staircase dropping down further to what looks like a dedicated dining area with a transparent curved roof above. The gradual stepping down despite being underground follows the terrain as the land falls towards the River Thames valley.
There is mixed seating of all currently known styles, most of the roughcast walls are washed white, some lower walls are wood panelled.
Of the four handpumps, two were on, Thornbridge Lord Marples (£4.50) and Gun Brewery Pale Ale. A selection of keg offerings plus an impressive range of bottles also available. Food served, pizze and burgers but a pub grub menu too.
I liked it, a sign made me smile and a cheery friendly welcome always counts for a lot, "We don't do Fosters, Carling, Stella, Becks or....London Pride". Controversial? Maybe someone had to raise it.....Youngs, GKIPA, DB?
