Since we were in the area we decided to try out this 2015 CAMRA Good Beer Guide pub. A decent range of real ales on offer and friendly service. But at £8.40 for a pint each of Dark Star Hophead and London Beer Factory Chelsea Blonde and served in mugs (why?) we had one drink and decided to leave The New Rose to it's target clientele...

I really like this place. Always incredibly good service despite the shape of the bar, you're never waiting long to be served.

Lovely looking pub, excellent music and a really nice atmosphere.

Always a good evening to be had here.

Was reasonably impressed with this pub. It's near enough to the Emirates Stadium to be handy on a matchday, whilst being far enough away to ensure it is not packed. There is plenty of seating around the circular bar. Although we had to move around the bar to get served, as there was nobody serving in the one section. 4 ales were on - Bath Ales Barnesy, London Fields Hackney Hopster, Windsor & Eton Mandarin & Clarkshaws Phoenix Rising. The cider was Thatchers Heritage.

Small, pleasant, but a bit dull having come from the wonders of E11/E10. 3 Wandle beers, the 2 I tried were OK. Very Islington formula pub.

The New Rose is still on my rota for a visit when in the area. Good beer selection, good music, funky trendy, nice.
