Went here on Wednesday and although there were customers the place had no buzz and felt very cold. I've been twice before and really enjoyed it but there seemed to be no soul on this visit.

The two blokes working the bar were both incredibly surly and I haven't received service that poor in a long time. It appeared that punters were an inconvenience to them and they'd rather be chatting to their mates.

It's a lovely area and there are quite a few nice pubs here but I wouldn't return after this last experience.

Nice little backstreet pub, not a million miles away from Dalston. The pubs around here seem to be much improved. 3 ales were on - Trumans Runner, Crouch Vale Brewers Gold & Greene King IPA. Cider was Addlestones. There are a couple of rooms and the pub does seem to focus on food. Service was quick and friendly. There is a small outdoor drinking area at the front of the pub. But it was a bit too cold for that on Sunday.

Sun and Guardian were both on display when I went in here for a meal and a pint. This pub is somewhere between being an old man's pub and a hipster hangout. They have three handpumps, and the ales are ok, the food is ok, but there's something missing that would make me want to return. Although the interior is very nice and spacious, the pub has a tired feel.

I had a brilliant night here recently. Great atmosphere in this pub and a good mix of people, brilliant staff too - very attentive and polite. Food was brilliant, I strongly recommend the steak with triple cooked chips, truly the best I have had in years (new chef apparently).I will definitely be going back soon.

On a Good Friday visit, we were treated to an astonishing display of prog rock over the tannoy starting with Led Zeppelin and the Floyd and regressing (if that seems possible) to Phil Collins - maybe Steven Gerrard was in that day? It seems that some severely hungover minor bar staff had hijacked the music policy and normal service was restored once the head barwoman had appeared. Not bad at all - somewhere between a gastropub (albiet only in clientele rather than culinary terms) and a proper drinking den, housed in a grand building on a corner. I wouldn't say this was in Islington though: this is a De Beauvoir Town boozer.
