Pub number 2, a 30 second walk from the Coach & Horses to the renamed Footman that was previously the only pub in London named The Only Running Footman!

Another pub I have never been in and after this visit I’m unsure I’ll visit again.

Internally there’s wooden flooring throughout, plenty of seating for diners & wine drinkers all to the back drop of a neutral dull decoration, all in all it’s a bit poncy really. Oh and the smell from the toilets was overpowering, there’s clean and there’s the strong stench of bleach.

Now onto the beer choice, being a Greene King pub the choices were limited with IPA, London Glory & the brewed for the pub Footman's Best @ 3.9% on offer. I went for the Footman's Best, it was an okay pint but served a little too cold for an ale.

Not much more to add about this pub over what I put above.

Not a good pub for beer - mainly a restaurant with a small bar area. Having said that it was packed and luckily for a September evening, the weather was good so the crowd spilled out onto the pavement. Limited selection of ales and only one was on. Not rushing back.

Very disapointed, if you only want to have a drink in what is meant to be a pub!! you are forced to take one of the very limited stools around the edge of the room, they definately welcome dinners more here!!

Shame, I was a regular here between 1998 & 2001. What a great little place it was, a good crowd of regular drinkers, top quality bar staff who were always looking to provide a great service,and the passing tourist trade seemed to enjoy it also.
Still looking for a venue in this area to replace it.

I went to this pub looking for a drink in the afternoon - sorry I'm not a real ale drinker but 15 for 2 small glasses of wine is ridiculous. Im sure the food must be wonderful for the prices they charge but lets face it, this is no classy restaurant. You sit on fold up chairs reminiscent of the local community centre, at tables situated in full view and a couple of yards from the toilet door and with all the ambience of an elderly aunts front room. I cant comment on the food itself but if you just want a drink go to the Audley instead
