Pleasant little backstreet boozer which seems to be fitted out for matchday rather than a proper local these days. The decor is somewhat spartan and the seating cleared away so legions of Arsenal fans can pack the place out. HOWEVER they do sell ale and on a non-matchday you can have a quick pint here quite comfortably and happily.

A throwback to a bygone era when pubs where places to catch up over a few pints with neighbours and old friends. Having said that, the pub is very inviting to strangers and the regulars appreciate newcomers who can raise a chuckle or two. Football is a popular conversation topic and most of the regulars are Arsenal fans, but all are welcome(several regulars are also Spurs fans).

Barstaff very friendly and hospitable. Good selection of beers.

Pubs like this are a rare breed these days.

A wonderful and outstanding example of a traditional back street pub that has withstood todays climate. This is by all accounts the last traditional pub in the area and I was truly delighted to stumble upon it.
There were 4 real ales on offer, which were so good that -well lets jus say that I had to return for my car the following morning! And my wife was as equally impressed with the selection of wines available.
The two lovely girls behind the bar were very attentive and could not do enough for us.
We have returned since (opting for public transport this time) and were equally delighted with our experience.
We cannot recommend it enough.

Nice local backstreet pub, just off the Holloway Road, it's a nice friendly bunch and a good place to catch a game or have a chat.

This is a very quiet backstreet boozer that was serving up Pride and a standard draught selection. There was another pump with a Bombardier clip attached, but this was off during my visit.

I spotted three plasma screens for the showing of Sky Sports and the is a pool table around the side of the bar by the exit to the tiny beer yard with some covered standing space and a heater for those chilly nights.

As has been mentioned before, this place is ok due to its peers lacking in many respects, but I wouldnt go out of my way to drink here again.
