Good canal side location, more restaurant than pub. This seems to be what Young's are up to with most of their pubs these days. We did not eat here, only had a few drinks of the usual Young's beers. By now anything tasted reasonable.

Can't even call this a gastro-pub: it's more a restaurant with a decent bar. Interesting location overlooking the canal and obviously a place to go with a gang for a meal rather than just a drink.

Really like this place. Food is quality and the location is great. Gets very busy, but always a relaxed environment

My firm organised a work Christmas lunch here in 2010 and I must say we were very impressed on every level. The canalside location is idyllic and the staff were friendly and very attentive to our needs. The food and ales on tap were also admirable. A very good example of how to modernise a pub well.

This was a favourite of mine a decade or so ago when it's alternative edge made a refreshing change from the Islington set. Now it's changed sides - and is part of the Islington set with prices to match.
Beer good but limited, staff friendly, food pricey. If you like ale - go around the corner to the mecca that is the Wenlock while it lasts
