Nice and quiet at lunchtime. Always a warm welcome here. The landlord actually seemed genuinely interested to learn how my Christmas had gone. (Answer: “Windy”).

14:15 4th and final CAMRA inventory stop. I have been drinking in this pub for 40 years and it has hardly changed apart from the price of beer. £4.24 a pint!

A nice relaxed atmosphere in here on a Sunday lunchtime. The roast dinners smelt good, but I was satisfied with a pint and a sausage roll.

It’s easy to forget what an appealing pub this is. My first visit in ages, and it proved a good pre-match refreshment point before heading out to Wembley for the England v Holland match.

I haven't been here since October 23rd 2000 when Ian and I did a manmouth pub crawl around Bloomsbury. Luckily I was up at a conference just round the corner and had an hours lunch break. ...and here's the freaky thing, when Tristan and I got in the pub the only spare seat was the one I'd sat at the last time I came here. Anyway, this is a lovely pub with lots of green leather seating.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Eagle (was Wells & Young's, was Charles Wells, was Wells) - Young's Bitter3.70ExcellentSmooth with a fresh, strong, bitterness which was well balanced by sweet malt. Sank it too quickly for a more detailed analysis - sorry.

Saturday lunchtime and I met some people from Ratebeer here as it was quite central before we set off for a small pub crawl around London. Comfy leather seats and the Young's isn't bad either

On Lamb's Conduit Street, not far from Russell Square. This is a tastefully decorated Young's pub with a central dark wood bar serving the usual Wells & Young's Brewery Young's branded range with snob screens around the bar and plenty of little seating areas. The green leather is particularly fine.
