If you are of a certain age group (like me) you will remember this pub as
The Gluepot.
When I attended the school across the road , Central Foundation in the 1970's me and my friends would drink here at lunchtimes, but the guvnor would always insist that we took our blazers, and ties off.
When I walked past this pub about 2 years ago I was pleased to see that the pub still had the seventies décor.
Now of course with the advent of Silicon Roundabout, Old Street will become
the new Covent Garden................yeah right !!!!

Passed today. Re-opened under new name and new image. Wasn't the greatest of pubs but it was a pub nonetheless. Now a wine bar type place.

In a way this pub is refreshing considering the frankly ridiculous alternatives in the vicinity. I found the staff friendly and the guvner too. They have a couple of ales on tap and the location is convenient. Best of all its one of the only pubs in the area for watching all the football games- they have an extensive satellite connection. Good place to while away a Saturday afternoon.
