Would have given this place a wide berth if I hadn't been dragged in by some colleagues.
That's just me superficially judging by the decor, music and trendy looking people heading in.
So, was surprised to find three ales on tap, with the Wychwood Christmas offering, Bah Humbug, perfectly drinkable and £3.55 a pint.
Staff were pleasant too and the service quick.
That was around 6.30pm, though, and I imagine later in the evening and at weekends it gets pretty busy and loud.

The new decor is a bit loud but the place is nice enough, as are the staff. On the downside, the Sunday lunch was over cooked and the bar had run out of limes for drinks? The staff did offer to go get some more so I really can't fault the service, just the chef and the person who orders supplies. One to drink and chat in, but maybe eat elsewhere.

Some proper beer as well, full of people, recession? what recession?

Now refurbished and re-named the Vineyard. Interior is a strange collection of chairs, tables, armchairs, and sofas with a multicoloured chequerboard upholstered bar. Food is good, reasonably priced and with a heavy South African influence.

It is not too difficult to imagine a cast array of Islington nobheads showing up here in the evening but on a weekday lunchtime it was pretty pleasant.

Ales were Doom Bar, Landlord and GKIPA along with a standard mix of lagers.

OK if in the area

Toilets are still rank, never any toilet roll, huge queues for them, always glasses over the pumps, never get what drink you want, what a crap over priced place
