Evening visit, my first for yonks. I can see why the pub's cat in ruff, currently Peabody, gets customers talking.

Early evening visit. We were honoured by a brush-past with pub cat Ray Brown, resplendent in his lawyers’ ruff. Look on the wall here for the charming framed poem by Tony Nash in honour of his predecessor Tom Paine.

16:30 Our party was spilt over three pubs and we re-met here. Heaving but we managed to get a seat. I didn't note all the beers. I had a very good porter but can't read my notes of the brewery name.

A couple of hours hard grind around the Courtauld Gallery had worked up a thirst, which was dealt with here. Always an interesting crowd in. The young couple on the next table were comparing notes on which of their respective families were the bigger Yorkshire landowners.

Very quaint pub with unusual clientele. Wedding party in the bar with 15 men. Couldn’t spot the bride. Menu contained elegant chicken at £10, cheese at £9 and posh ice cream at £6. Our third pub on our London pub crawl. 5 beers were on the bar.

Fullers purchased this pub from Enterprise last year so I was interested to see if anything had changed. I got the impression that it was not broken so they have not fixed it, absolutely nothing appears to have changed. This was a busy Thursday evening with the usual interesting mix of customers, and very efficient bar staff.

Dark Star - Hophead3.80ExcellentThis was in superb condition, I was tempted to give it five stars. Hophead as it should be.

Website.

The pub is found in Aldwych, Central London, WC2A 2JB.

Located in Carey Street right behind the Royal Courts of Justice this is a smallish pub split into 3 rooms. The main bar isn't very wide with rooms for eating/drinking at either end. It has a good feel to it and is somewhere you can imagine losing an afternoon. Beware the steep flight of stairs up to the toilets. 5 handpumps.

We have visited this pub 13 times, seen 12 different beers and tried 7 of them.
