Can't agree more on the food: unprintable rubbish. This was a lovely pub in the 60s and 70's, today it's just a tourist trap designed to turn tourists off pubs for ever. Take it out!
The beer may be well kept and the former literary connections impeccable but this is a very poor pub: the food is badly prepared, basic and pricey while the atmosphere is cold and the bar staff (foreign to a man) completely uninterested. Coming back here after ten years absence was a heartbreak, not even lucky dip level. Please in the interests of consistency and humanity - take it out!

The pub has plenty of atmosphere and staggering literary connections. And the beer is generally well-kept. However, the bar food is not particularly good value -- we found it meagre and expensive. The Lamb and Flag across the road is better value for food at lunchtimes -- and also keeps its ale in good condition.
