I visited yesterday and have had to reduce my review down. It is still a great place to go for your last decent pint before going into the forum. However, the price for soft drinks is both high and illegal. I ordered, and was given, a half pint of coke (10oz) and charged £2.45. When queried I was provided with a receipt that stated a 16oz measure. When I advised the bar staff that I had been overcharged for a half pint they called over the manager whose answer was that there wasn’t an option on the till to put through a half pint. My argument was that I wanted to pay less for less volume, but the manager didn’t understand this, and the 'compensation' was to provide me with a 16 oz coke (which I had paid for anyway?). When I continued trying to explain to the manager that the transaction had been illegal, he said 'don't beat the messenger, this is what we're told to do’. Perhaps Youngs, the landlord, need to train their staff on the Weights and Measures Act or advise their customers that soft drinks only come in 16oz and not half pints. Perhaps petty, but how many customers do you overcharge every night this way?

West end prices. £1.65 for a mixer (tonic) £4.80 for a single measure of spirits (Hendricks gin) No discount for doubles and mixer. Mixed nuts - more than £3 a portion. Spacious, airy and laid back. High ceilings. Interesting history dating back to mid 19th century. Comfortable seating, pleasant reasonably attentive staff. Beer on a par with local prices. Menu looks genuine. Starter £5-£7.5 Main £12 - £17 Music not overbearing. Enjoyed first visit enough to be tempted to return for food.

This place is a fairly stand Young's pub. Upstairs there is an extremely nice Gin Bar that, as far as I can tell, is often largely empty. There is an extensive dining area at the back. On both of my past couple of visits, almost all of the ales were not on at the time.

Beautiful decorated (toilets included) and really pleasant atmosphere. Staff are attentive and available without being intrusive, and the food is delicious. I had the fish and chips and the fish was really melt-in-your-mouth with thin, crispy batter and very tasty chips and mushy peas. Great wine, too! Being right by the Forum, it's a good start for a night out. :)
