Very functional and somewhat characterless boozer beside the tube station. Some more boring office workers might have a leaving drinks here, or perhaps a meeting point before heading on somewhere else down Holloway. On match days it of course becomes an Arsenal fans only pub with security on the door, and I gather inflated prices. All in all not really a destination pub, but works well enough as a place to stop by for a swift one.

I used to enjoy this pub until a few nights ago. It would often have an interesting real ale on the pump and it was good for watching the footy. The last time I went though, my girlfriend complained about how expensive the round was (£13.60 for 3 drinks including an orange juice and soda water). So I decided to buy the same round, but asked what the price was of the drinks as I ordered. We realised we'd been overcharged by about £5. When I challenged the landlord about this, he checked the till and said that we'd ordered 4 drinks. We knew we hadn't but he was adamant we had. When I suggested he might have made a mistake he said he never makes mistakes and refused to acknowledge there was a problem. He looked very guilty though. We then realised he'd overcharged for the first round we'd bought too. Rather than cause a scene, we decided to vote with our feet and will never return to this boozer until a new landlord takes over. It's no wonder some of the other comments thought this pub was expensive. If you really want to drink in this pub, check the bar tariff first.

Has the character of an airport bar, but without the comfort of knowing you'll soon be flying away from it soon. Expensive, poor beer selection, zero atmosphere, sterile staff. Why would anyone come here?

2/10
