|Seemed to be more of a gastropub than a proper alehouse. But this pub is close to Highbury & Islington station and handy for the Emirates Stadium. It was busy yesterday lunchtime with matchgoers. 3 ales were on - London Gold, Cornish Coaster & Ghost Ship. I wouldn't rule this pub out whenever I'm here for the football.|

|Have now visited for the third time with a variety of friends on all three visits as I didn't want to post a negative review without others' opinions. When the barman has to apologise for serving you a cold £3 sausage roll with the words, "Don't shoot the messenger" you can tell which way this is going. My pint was on the turn and to forbid drinkers from sitting at empty unreserved dining tables (which constitute 2/3rds of the pub) is unforgiveable. Zero enjoyable experiences from three attempts; I'm just glad my pubcollecting friend has now visited this 'disappointment' so we won't have to return for a fourth time. |

|Ale (Redmeption IPA) was spot on but it's too much of a gastro/hooray/knobhead kind of place to warrant staying for more than a pint.|

|Sorry that this is going to be more of a restaurant review, but we booked a big table to celebrate my daughter's 18th at the weekend & the staff couldn't have been more attentive & helpful. Managed a few rounds via the bar as well so can confirm that that aspect seems to be working too. I agree that you do need to go that bit further from the main roads on matchdays though.|

|This place has the makings of a great boozer, itís just a shame that it feels more like a restaurant with the bar area being much smaller than the dining section. The barmen were extremely friendly and GHA Pale, Cornish Coaster and Broadside were available alongside Old Rosie, a selection of premium lagers and Carlsberg.|
There is a TV and I spotted a sign outside advertising the Ashes, so they must have Sky Sports.
Iím not one to eat in pubs very often, but it did smell good and I did like the pub so I may return with the wife.
