The Chamberlayne is open!

No pictures yet, but early indications are good. It sells the new Artois range, which I had not tried, and seems nice enough. The look is exposed brickwork, expensive steaks written on boards, and the no-two-chair-alive style which every other London pub conversion has, but I suppose adds to the image. Very busy on Thursday too, which I assume was the opening night. I thought it was slightly strange it allowed smoking, given the ban in only three days away.

Everytime I walk past it's busy & it is nice it has an outside bit even if it's not as nice as a proper beer garden. Some of the pirces for the steaks seem a bit steep but I've not tried them yet.

I've tried the steaks 3 times and each was better than the previous. Very good form for a newly opened place. Impressive.

Went there on Friday....we still didn't eat but because there was no smoking in the pub any more there was an odd smell of fish. Despite the fish smell it is still a good put which the area needs.

The fish smell was fish cooking, which is understandable as there's now no smoke smell.
