|The inside, which is much larger than the exterior suggests, has comfortable and clean surroundings. Two real ales on sale ,served by a friendly landlady who will tell you about the history of the pub if you are interested .Also has a garden area,which is unusual in London.|

|This is a nice little pub hidden away in the backstreets of Clerkenwell. Despite being early on a Friday evening, when most pubs were busy, we practically had the run of this place. Outside, a few drinkers were enjoying the sunshine. Inside, there were a couple of people playing darts. Cornish Coaster & Wandle were the ales on offer. There's plenty of seating available. But if it's not busy on a Friday evening, I wonder if it ever fills up. Nevertheless, a nice find.|

|My notes from a visit on 27th March this year:|
A completely fruitless search in our quest for London Bar Billiards on this occasion.....our plan was for my wife and I to have a meal and a game before taking in a show in the evening.
A short walk across Clerkenwell Green from Farringdon tube station brought us to the Horseshoe, a tiny pub, but the doors were closed to the hungry tourist. Could just be their chosen hours of business, though, not all pubs having to be open all hours - not even in London.

|Lovely pub if you like darts, very quaint but very locals too.|
Came here to meet friends last Friday before ripping the night away, very friendly staff.

|Have always had a soft spot for this pub, hidden around a corner from the massed office types cradling pints while standing outside The Crown or the Three Kings. Lovely windows, airy - mind the pong on the way out into the garden, mind - great staff, and a beer garden out back that's often bewilderingly uncrammed, even on a Friday, which feels like a green oasis of calm.|
Hired the place one Saturday (when the pub's usually closed) for my 40th, set up a band in there and had one of the best times. The landlord and his staff couldn't have been friendlier.
I do really like the unique Three Kings (The Crown, far less so), but you wait an eon to be served there, so I always gravitate to the perfectly unpretentious Horseshoe when out in Clerkenwell.
Just don't all hit it in your droves. I prefer a bit of space.
