I'd suggest any review dated before August 2005 is so far removed from the current effects of the two makeovers and change in customers as to be unhelpful.

Choice of beers and wines good, food good and its big pubby surroundings good. Apart from occasions when behind the bar appears to be like the Marie Celeste or a training ground for the terminally slow and bewildered, it's not bad.

OK-ish for lunch or early evening eats with teens in tow for a change, but not a serious eatery or drinkery. The bogs though are disdusting - are the regulars fitted with sprinklers?

The Rochester Castle, Stoke Newington

Good points: No music or TV, so you can talk. Good prices on food (not all fried), beer and wine. Roomy and comfortable. No smoking area. Attracts great local characters.
Bad points: Untrained staff means long wait at bar. Screaming kids often running round on Sat / Sun lunch and afternoons.
