Strange, strange name for a pub and, one day, Mycroft would have to get Marty behind the bar drunk so he'd spill the story as to why any-one would consider it a good name.
It was, in all consideration, a pretty small and only mediocre  bar.
The food could be slightly hit-and-miss, but the bitter ale was good, as was the wine (not fine restaurant good, but acceptable to Mycroft's palate) and  it was a family business and didn't entirely rob you blind.

Mycroft liked the booths and they were all too pleased to do so, hoping the politician would recommend them.
Shame they chose the friendless (/antisocial) and clever man who knew that promoting the bar would lead to his quiet, private drink-hole to become far too busy for his liking. But he did tell a few at the Yard about it.

Lestrade asked him out for a drink occasionally.
As sort-of colleagues and one of Sherlock's begrudging keepers, they chatted rather well really, all things considered.

So, once more coaxed from his solitude, Mycroft sent the car round to pick up Lestrade and another dropped Mycroft outside the typical-looking pub. He waited a few minutes and then went inside, ordering Lestrade's favourite drink and a hoppy beer Marty highly recommended and then went to his table, a walled-around booth with worn carpet seats.

Ash walked into the bar and looked around. It was... well, it wasn't the most cheery place, but it wasn't too seedy, either. Still, she was glad that she hadn't dressed up too much- only enough to look professional for her meeting. She wandered around the place, looking for a free booth when she saw none other than Mycroft Holmes. She approached his table with a sincere smile on her face.

"Hello, Mr Holmes. How are you today?"

Mycroft looked up and he blinked twice. You could see him calculating.

"Nice to see you too Miss Hadley. Doing fine, thank you. Detective Inspector Lestrade thought I should take a break from work before I 'burn out' and so suggested a drink." He informed her before she got the wrong idea by him sitting ther with two drinks.

Presumptions and leaving a situation to people's imaginations is asking for utter tommy-rot gossip by the lorry-load.

"And how are you fairing?"

"Oh, I shall have to say hi to him before I leave, then," she remarked with a smile. "I'm glad to hear you're doing well. I am fairing quite well myself. I'm here to have a meeting with a potential client, actually. Tristan's as healthy and happy as ever, and I'm still with Jeremy."

Here she blushed and gave a shy smile. "Thanks for giving me that push back at the party. He... we..." she chuckled here and and gave a shrug as if to say, Things are so perfect that I can't even find the words for it.

Mycroft smiled and then saw Gregory walk in.
(Look on the actual journal, he addresses you first. :D )
