Adam and Eve, Fitzrovia
No longer a mock Horror pub, the test-tube cocktails and Gothic furnishings have been cleared aside as part of a Geronimo pubs refit, as has the old name. And, as you'd expect, the new pub's furnishings are soft, the feel loungey, with mismatched chairs covered in a fairly bright, stripey material and butcher block tables sprinkled around - the Ben Crouch is now a distant memory. It's very pleasant and modern, if a bit eclectic. Large letters spelling out words on the bookcases, a huge clock on one wall, photos of 60's celebs in the very nice bogs, but somehow it all works. The food looks good, with sausage rolls, pork pie and scotch eggs available for snacking on, with reasonably priced meals and daily specials available as well. There were four ales on when we were in last, and reasonably well kept. The staff are friendly and offer table service too. It's now proving to be very popular with local workers and shoppers escaping from Oxford Street, so expect it to be crowded evenings towards the weekend. There isn't a huge number of good pubs around here, so the popularity of the Adam and Eve should come as no surprise.
