I was the only customer in on a Friday afternoon, the place does have some character with its internal arches but it was a bit hard to get any sort of buzz out of it being empty.
It's basically a craft bar with fifteen keg options available and on my visit just the one cask beer, thats what I went for, Redemption Trinity, despite being only a 3.0 % beer it was full of flavour and body as well as being very well kept. I think the place shows some promise and will have another look somewhen. 6.5/10.

Fairly gloomy place located under the arches of Holborn Viaduct. I had initially tried to visit at lunchtime, only to find it does not open until later on some weekday afternoons. So, I returned to make it my final port of call.

Two other ladies were present on tables overlooking the busy Farringdon Street. I chose to sit inside near the bar, which was dispensing a solitary real ale - Ghost Ship. The emphasis is very much on craft beer here. So, I opted for an Orbit Dead Wax.

Their food speciality is gyoza dumplings. Although, I didn't witness the other girls trying these and I certainly wasn't ready to try them.

Downstairs is even more gloomy. Being underground, there is no natural light at all. There arehowever, quite a few tables, in addition to some gaming machines (pinball etc). Toilets are unisex. I'm not sure how women get on washing their hands directly next to the gents' urinals!

After a swift half, I left the barmaid on her own with no customers. How City pubs are coping financially in current circumstances, I just don't know.

Small ground floor area dominated by a massive pillar supporting the bridge above but it gives the place a bit of character Bar on the right with 4 cask and ten keg beers.Card only so beware.Spiral stairs lead to another bar but it was closed.Downstairs has another wood clad area with seating and very nice toilets.Cask beers from Hawkshead Redemption.Black Sheep and Big Smoke.
