Pub near Great Portland Street in London.

This pub got its name when one of the first patrons to step through its doors after opening remarked on how much the interior smelled like the natural odour of Blur's lead singer, Damon Albarn.

Those who venture into the albany aromas of this establishment will note that Gastro pretensions abound on the pub's menu, meaning that "prawns" may be labelled "crayfish", and the greasy burgers don't come with any chips, merely a slightly disappointing and unassuming salad. This will annoy some, but come as a pleasant surprise if you've somehow found yourself eating your third lunch of the day in error.

Pints are rather expensive, but there is a vast array of Sunday papers lying around, which angers people who have bothered lugging their own copies in with them.
