The sex industry may be a 30 billion a year business, but this demoralising dive shows how the chink of coins fuels the bottom of the barrel realities. As one girl writhes on the tiny, raised stage, the next turn is circulating with the collecting pint pot. It's simple. The more that goes in, the more that comes off - and the more gynaecological the presentation. And that's the routine all day long. The range of drinks? God knows, or cares. But clearly methods are in place to transfer substantial quantities of alcohol into the bloodstream of transfixed punters - be they nervy looking little clerks, local pimps or lost souls from Hades. The floor, we are told, was one of the last in London to be sawdusted. The Gents', it is said, was the inspiration for the surreal nightmare of the worst toilet in the world from the book and film of "Trainspotting". We didn't check. If you're into watching someone's daughter, someone's sister bump and grind for handfuls of cash to feed either her child or her habit, then you must live with that. But be ashamed. Be very ashamed.

As already noted, the first reviewer has been overly harsh. I have been to this pub a few times, and have never had cause to complain. It is what it is, and that's that. I have found the staff friendly and the girls are just earning a living. If you think doing this by using your body is wrong, don't go there and don't be a stripper.

OK, it's not real ale, does not offer a gourmet eating experience and the wine list might be a bit short, but it does not claim any of these attributes.

It is worth a visit just to see how bad a gents loo can be in this day and age and the place still be allowed to open.

The First comment seems unfair. The girls are real and work for little money. I would also like to add that it gets busy in there so even though the actual building is rustic and dilapidating the actual rating for a venue deserves noting.

That first comment seems unwarranted and untrue. The place doesn't look all that but the girls are real and do their job for a minimal fee

Contrary to the other review on this website please do not buy into what that narrow minded idiot has said. The Flying Scotsman does not employ drug addicted single mothers as suggested, it is a happy pub with a great atmosphere that does what it says on the tin. It also does not depend on how much money the girl receives as to how many items of clothing she takes off. The bar prices are in line with regular pub prices, the girls are friendly and as are there is no private dancing services, they are not out to hustle customers, preferring to have a drink with whoever comes in and keep the atmosphere vibrant. Sure it's not the prettiest pub out there but if you want an honest night out with beer and boobs look no further.
