A good unpretentious pub in an area where smart arsed lager bars are becoming a trend

Popped in Friday lunchtime before Christmas. Plenty of people eating.
This is a very darts pub with a board downstaira and a sign saying more boards upstairs, also darts on the TV. Still seemed a friendly place, Harveys Best, £3.70.
Christmas decorations were very 80's. Could this be a retro pub of the future?
It seems to have bucked the trend to move with the times and seems better for it.

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.
