This pub is now a Tommy Flynn's. As far as I could tell, it's almost exactly the same as it was 4 years ago, but I had to leave after 30 seconds as the front half stank of piss due to clientele and the back half stank of piss due to the gents toilet opening directly into the pub. Didn't spot any customers leering over the barmaids, getting weirdly involved in pub owner politics and saying things like "happy days", though, so that's one bonus.

This pub is dodgy. Full of 'geezers' in and out of the toilet with rolled up 5 pound notes and aggressively shouting across the bar at each other.

In fairness there is also a contingent of perfectly respectful old Irish fellas drinking themselves into a stupor but perfectly peacefully also. Plenty of lonely guys sitting round the bar trying to pass the day.

Busy when Arsenal play obviously.

Doing much better these days. New landlord who seems quite a decent guy. Had a bit of trouble in there lately I heard so the police have put it back on their radar sadly. Had the interior and exterior painted but you need sunglasses to go inside due to the colours! The person who decided on such a mish-mash of colour should be strung up! Its nice to see it on the up finally but still some way to go - but its getting there!

Open again! Might not be for long, though, as it's still got the For Sale pub agents signs up. Enjoy this amazing 10/10 dirty, rank, unfriendly dive while you can!
