|I'm the sad bugger who went in to look at the interior as this is listed in CAMRA's Inventory of Classic London pubs (even though it doesn't sell real ales). You can see what it must have looked like years agao even though it is dark and pretty dingy inside. How boring is that - but yes I did chip in my quid and watch a pleasant little girl take her clothes off!! |

|Agree this place is an institution and jewel in Londonís Crown. A last chance saloon for the weary traveller, long may it continue. Had couple of beers in here after a long train journey south, pleasantly surprised |

|Last time I passed by in a taxi, it looked like it had closed down. As the taxi waited at the traffic lights at the Caledonian/Pentonville Rd jn, I noticed the pub name scrawled on a blackboard in chalk! I was then pleasantly surprised to see a patron take his leave via a side exit....the pub was still open!!|
Through the doorway, I could just make out the dirtiest stripping music of all time - aka the 'Grange Hill' TV theme. Then the lights changed to green and I was brought back to an unwelcome reality.

|A jewel in the crown among the pubs of its kind.|
It is what it is and god forbid it ever changes.
Don't going expecting fine ales and a seat, but do go for some harmless entertainment and a swift pint of lager.......get your pound coins at the ready!

|Still as grotty as ever. Every beer tastes of fairy liquid. You can see needle tracks on half the girls. The bog is just plain scary. Like a timewarp back to the 70,e Expect to bump into Afur Dailey or the Sweeny at any moment. Brill hope it never changes!! (zero rating for the beer, plus four for old memories)|
