Nicholson's pub near Liverpool Street.
The decor is smart-traditional, with a hardwood floor, lots of dark wood, and chandelier-style lighting. The seating wraps around the edges of the room, with standing space around the bar. Pillars break up the space, giving several little separated-up areas rather than one large space. A couple of booths nestle at the back, and an ornate staircase spirals up to a mezzanine seating area. Large windows let in plenty of light.
Kake visited on a Monday afternoon in September 2014. There were several other customers in at 2:30pm, in small groups of two or three. Music was playing very quietly.
The handpumps offered Hadley Blonde, London Pride, Nicholson's Pale Ale, Hook Norton Lion, Truman's Runner, and Sharp's Doom Bar. A half of lime and soda was 55p.
Food is served all day from a chain-wide menu.
Accessibility: No steps to get in, just a slightly uneven threshold. Six steps with a sturdy handrail on one side to the gents', four more without handrail to the ladies'.
