Pub number 2 on my Friday night crawl.

The sun was shining, the evening was balmy and the pub was absolutely packed with hipsters & trendy locals.

Packed outside with inside also very busy but quick enough to get a drink.

5 pumps which had the following ales on Timothy Taylor Landlord, Caledonian Duchars IPA, Black Sheep Monty Pythons Holy Grail, Sharps Doom Bar and Everard's Xingu. I opted for a pint of Xingu and it was very good. As well as the ales they also had Camden Hells Lager, Fruli & Bernard Dark on tap.

This is a lovely old building that used to have a theatre upstairs but it’s now a dining room. Attractive tiles on the outside lower wall and parlour style stained glass doors.

Overall a very attractive pub, good beer choice and busy. Definitely worthy of a stop on a pub crawl in the area.

What is the great London obsession with standing on the pavement outside pubs? At least it means you can get a seat inside.

Typically madeover central London venue serving expensive but decent beer as a sideline to shifting meals at the sort of mark up that makes me realise I'm in the wrong job. There's better and cheaper close by.

Rudest bar staff ever. Beer tasted a bit off too, far better places in Farringdon and Clerkenwell than this joke, that's for sure.
