Nice looking pub area, but toilets not been cleaned in several days - blocked pipes, papers and liquids on floor (Gents and Ladies), over-flowing bins, smell of neglect. No change even an hour after reporting to disinterested staff at over-manned bar. Not overly busy, so...More

Went to a gig in the basement of the pub - nice venue, decent range of beers. Not quite sure where they got the toilets from as they are very low to the floor! Very similar to those you’d find in a children’s school... Happily...More

A handy venue as a precursor to those attending Stamford Bridge and then also for post-match analysis after battle has ceased. The same reasons for attending the pub can also be said for those attending the theatre upstairs. Situated on a quiet residential street, it's...More
