A perfectly acceptable place to stop off for a cheeky afternoon pint, as I did, but I can't say the interior would inspire me to hurry back. The usual wood throughout and rickety furniture suggest a fairly recent renovation trying to look old, and not doing it very well. The pint of Best was horrible but I think that was more a duff choice than anything wrong with it. Not a place to avoid, not a place to recommend.

Doombar, Harveys Sussex and Otter (sometimes) ....all good.
Pub often packed by all the local workers who don't fancy paying even more inflated prices at the Windmill or happy hour rates at the Old Kings Head or Watermark...

There are few vestiges of its original pub character remaining, such as the cast iron pillars for example. I’m not sure about the cut and etched glass windows – if they are modern reproductions they are pretty good ones. A bare-boarded floor, wooden tables and chairs with no padding – there’s nothing soft and warm about this place. The champagne bucket and basket of lemons on the bar give the game away. Harvey’s Bitter at £3.40 a pint is also a clue (they also had Pedigree on) – it’s a gastro-pub. The only décor on the walls seem to be chalkboards advertising the wine lists and bar menu, plus some sort of mural depicting a bloke sitting in a chair having a fag with a dog tethered in the doorway. The pub’s typical of the breed. It’s not the sort of place that I feel comfortable just sitting having a pint.

If you're ever caught short in the no-man's land between Old St and Broadgate then it's well worth draining your weasel here. You won't find a lovelier set of clean, pine-scented bogs in London.

Passable pub in poverty stricken area for beer. It serves Harvey's and Pedigree, or did last week. Unusual in having a traditional style central bar which you can walk all the way around. Not sure how old the bar is. There is an upstairs as well, set aside for certain persons when we were there. The interior is very much a storehouse for cheap wood. Not altogether bad. The Artillery Arms is too close to make this worthwhile though.
