15th Nov 2004 - V. good food if a little overpriced (nb fish pie sounds nice but v bland). Try and get a table upstairs if there's a gang of you going. NB - gets very busy and suity on Thurs and Friday evenings

14th Nov 2004 - Quite a large pub, usually packed out with pin stripe suits on a Thursday or Friday night, especially around pay day. There are several other pubs within a stones throw of here and they are all just that tiny bit better than this place.

7th Sep 2004 - Until three or four years ago the Hook used to be a bank, and it shows. Fullers have been 'sympathetic' in the conversion, but it still fails to feel like a proper pub.

The best thing about the place is the food, and they do serve a very good pie, but at nearly 8 it should be good.

Beer selection is good, is kept pretty well and the antipodean bar staff are friendly enough.

There are no sporting facilities whatsoever, so no marks there.

Lunchtimes and after work see this pub packed to the rafters with suits, there aren't really any locals to speak of.

Nice pie, but its basically a boring chain pub.
