Greene King seem to be making a special effort to improve the beer offering in their London pubs just now – but I somehow allowed myself to fall for the sucker beer in here. Very nice pub though.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Belhaven - Herok & Howell’s Festival Ale 3.80AcceptableRather laughably, this is described as an “American-style IPA”. Personally, I have never come across such a low-strength or bland US IPA. I could not see the word ‘Belhaven’ on the pump-clip, although it might be there. Darkish, with caramel and butterscotch tastes. Just a hint of decent hops. Tastes a lot like the regular Greene King IPA with a dash of Cascade in fact.

The pub is found in Fitzrovia, Central London, W1W 7LQ.

This pub was present by 1869 and is an ornate, four-storey, yellow-brick, street corner pub. Internally it now features a small-ish, single front bar area and an almost separate rear room. There are several surviving features from the late-Victorian period, including the wooden bar back. The back room is wood-panelled and has some great gilded and etched mirrors and all through the pub are some lovely wall-mounted ceramic panels featuring hunting scenes. Now owned by Greene King, it is good to see it has reverted to a pictorial pub sign after a period with a bland, generic, company sign. Closed 2nd July 2016 with permitted developments authority to combine with next door building for a variety of possible uses on the ground floor, including residential above the ground floor.

We have visited this pub once, seen 5 different beers and tried 1 of them.
