This pub rather offers an oasis of calm near the relentless bustle of the Charing Cross Road, thanks to being ignored by the hordes passing the end of the short alleyway in which it hides. With debatable external charm, inside the decor combines wood panelling with kitsch touches (neon and fairy lights, retro furniture), in a similar fashion to the other unbranded Mitchells & Butlers pubs across London. The pub had a decent selection of ales when we were in last and a familiar selection of continental beers on draught such as Leffe, Hoegaarden, Budweiser, Staropramen. Staff are friendly but keep track of punters when there's a rush on (and if the pub's busy, have a check for a table in the downstairs bar). Food's a bit quirky, but well prepared and relatively inexpensive. The overall feel is of a Soho pub rather than a generic Charring Cross boozer - note too the regular events downstairs (comedy, DJs, ukulele nights). Will be interesting to see if this one continues to attract a crowd, given the fact that the pub now teeters on the brink of the Crossrail building works that have rather V2'd the top end of Charring Cross Road.
