Dean's Brasserie, Bloomsbury
Odd pub, attached to the Waverley Hotel in Holborn, but seemed to be full of regulars. Ikea style interior, laminate floors blah blah, nothing special. Had a range of food available for customers, but it wasn't clear if it was free, or how you ordered it (think school canteen delivery and you are almost there). One bloke decided to try some using his fingers, the manager got a bit lairy, and, rather harshly, called him "a fucking animal". The toilets downstairs were a disgrace, and the cleaner had very nicely left the sponge cloth out for all to see drying on a radiator, complete with old pubes on it. I had nightmares about this place last night.
