Final pub on a walk from Bloomsbury Street to King's Cross, I don't think I have been here before. A light and airy pub with friendly staff.

A lively hum to the place for a Sunday evening. Couple of tables free, we plonked ourselves down in one of the comfy leather-setteed booths. Mulled wine had run out much to Mrs Dubbel's disappointment. She settled on a Fruli instead. Can't vouch for the food, although the menu looked interesting and varied enough.
Oakham - Bishops Farewell4.60ExcellentCrystal clear and in great condition, sweetened grapefruit very much in evidence with trademark dry hoppy Oakham finish. A true classic.
