Hand pumpvarious / Carling, San Miguel Very nice (fake?) antique decor with bare bricks and some rough plaster, and wood and stone flooring, in this large building. There were fourteen real ales on when I visited - sadly I didn't have time to try all of them! The menu looks good. In my experience, always busy.
