I'm not into football and haven't been on a match day, but as you can guess from it's name the pub IS a shrine to Arsenal and well worth a look if you are a fan but not concerned about the ale.

I've only been there for the live music, and the times I've been it has been a good little music venue. It's shite for real ale though - several pumps on the bar but only one in use, and sometimes not even that! They only had London Pride last time I was there, although a decent selection of bottled beers in the chiller cabinet. £5 for a bottle of Bishops Finger that I can get from Aldi for £1.20 is seriously taking the piss though! Talking of piss - the toilets are fucking freezing and the hot taps don't work. Nor does the hot air hand drier - disgraceful for a pub that charges rip-off prices for it's ale. Got to say the bloke behind the bar in sports attire and a baseball cap was really good at his job though - very keen to serve you drinks.

Really great place, and as you can see by my user-name I am a Royals fan. I went on a weeknight to watch some bands and was impressed by the whole operation. Good range of drinks at reasonable prices. The staff were great hosts too, and I especially liked drinking the ale out of a traditional dimple glass. I haven't been on a match day but definitely recommend this place on weeknights.

I only set foot in this place because it was once run by someone in my family (when it was The Globe, in 1892, William Wimberley was his name). Basically just a drinking barn for supporters of the football team up the road.
