On the outside it looks like a rather nice old fashioned pub. On the inside it looks like a run-down old fashioned pub. But it is in fact a very gastroey gastro-pub, and it's proud to be so. The "no service here" sign right in front of the beer pumps speaks volumes.
Go here if you're middle aged and posh for fancy 'English style tapas'. But for a quiet drink at the bar you'll feel like you're in the way, although the Theakston's Lightfoot was very nice. And so is the ceiling.
