Blending perfectly with the second-hand bookstores and other arcana along this lovely, narrow pedestrianised passage, this imposing but welcoming Young’s pub has benefited from a 2007 refit that spruced it up without draining its character.

Decorative accents are provided by scenes from fairytales, black-and-white photos of days out and century-old posters for London Underground, but the best seats are around the tall table facing the picture window.

Wines figure prominently here, perhaps more so than is common at other branches in the Young’s family, but the regular beers are all present and correct. Many come here to eat, either in the pub or in the large rear dining area. You can get food to share (vegetarian or mini pie platter), as well as the traditional pub grub.

Manager Claudia is vile- rude and aggressive towards guests , in my view should not be managing such a beautiful establishment. Would never return

*would rate it one star but button wouldn't allow hence the two stars

First time at the Flask and I had my handbag stolen. The pub was almost empty, the biggest problem was that the bar attendant said that there is no CCTV camera. So Beware....
