From the outside we had high hopes. The ornate Victorian ironwork, stating its original name ('The De Beauvoir') was still intact and the large bay windows easily invite you in. Recently under new management, all the ingredients are in place to make this place great, but sadly something's gone wrong in the oven. From the sparse interior and strange-looking bar, to the odd chemical smell and the incorrect punctuation for the Ladies' toilet, nothing was quite right. The service was good and the Guinness well-kept, but its often a bad sign when the ale pumps are purely decorative. We also know the large back room was previously an alternative music venue, but didn't see much evidence of it still being a feature during our visit. Perhaps promoting themselves as a less pretentious rival to the overpriced Talbot down the road would draw the punters, because at the moment it's simply squandering some great potential.

Still closed - there has been building work going on for ages, with no apparent end in sight. Let's hope it eventually reappears as a pub and not yet another block of flats.

have just moved nearby and this would have been my local...sadly it's not open any more and looks like it's suffered a pretty major fire as the front's there but there doesn't seem to be a back...

will be closed for some time, if not permanently.
