The management has recently (maybe a year ago) changed and improved the place. The beer is certainly better-kept, the pipes cleaner, and more guest ales. The staff are variable but better than under the previous landlord. It still often seems to take an annoyingly long time to get served even when the place isn't that busy. Clientele is office workers / journalists / music biz types, shoppers and a few well-to-do locals. The controversy over standing outside on the pavement seems to have died down - and the former landlord's ridiculous habit of clearing outdoor tables and chairs away at 4pm has gone the same way as him.

It is a real shame because this pub used to a really nice little traditional pub. Unfortunately the current assistant manager has no class, no manners and no charm and to be fair is just damn right rude. The rest of the staff are pleasant and courteous and it is a reall shame that it is managed by such a clueless fool. If you do visit and are unfortunate enough to see her then I will guarantee you wont go back. Try the Builders Arms or The Britania for a more pleasant evening.
