  • Great intimate theatre upstairs. One of the finest examples of pub theatres, and one of London's most legendary...
  • Lovely ornate pub with a theatre. Can get busy when sport is shown on large screens.
  • Nice pub. Cozy and nice for a small group for a chat and drink. Very warm and red decorations.
  • A pub that punches well above its weight in terms of theatrical productions. The petite and intimate setting makes for absorbing theatre-going delight.
  • Good selection of well kept real ales
  • Apparently, you can order in Malaysian food here...
  • Nice pub with friendly staff.
  • A very pretty pub with comfortable seating. Unfortunately, on Sunday night it run out of half of its drinks on tap and bar staff were unpleasant - more concerned with their phones than customers.
  • Good range of beers, PieMinister pies and a choice of alcohol-free beers(!)

  • Norwich City pub for London (at least until Offside is done up).
