|Genuinely love this place. When I heard through friends and read here that it'd close I was gutted. Went and had a peek for myself today to confirm... and I can report that its open with a new manager, but, thankfully, with the same interior. Hope he or she doesn't mess with it!|

|It has been reported that the brewery have sold the lease back to the freeholder. The brewery have told me that this is incorrect although there has been a recent change of tenant.|

|Youngs have sold the lease back to the freeholder, and the pub will probably be converted into a restaurant.|

|The current user rating of 7/10 is far more indicative of the quality of the pub than the miserable review below this (19 Jun 2012) - typical Ďone review userí fodder.|
I hadnít been back for a good few years and found it to be a friendly, homely local's pub. Beers are well kept, food is cheap. The interior is traditional - bare floorboards and comfortable bench seating; itís not been through the Youngís blandification machine yet. Didnít notice either a smell from the loos, nor peeling walls.
No mice present on my visit, but a handful of friendly regulars and a scatting of Clerkenwell workers.

|I did not enjoy my visit to this pub. The interior, it's safe to say, has seen better days. The walls and ceilings are peeling and everything looks like it needs a good clean.Although the ladies' toilets are relatively hygienic, the mens' emit a constant stink. At one point, when drinking my overpriced ale, I could have sworn I saw a mouse run into the kitchen. I will not be visiting this hovel again and would encourage others to avoid.|
