Good venue for watching sport - has a big central screen, and lots of decent TVs in various nooks/booths, including one outside. It gets busy for big midweek European matches, but the bar is well staffed. The pizzas are also good. On the down side, there is a poor selection of drinks. The only ale is some very average Green King, and the lager selection is limited. Can be quite empty on non-match days, which means that the faint smell of drains isn't masked.

Really liked this place, went in recently and there seems to be new management since all the reviews below. Food was good and at a good price, selection of beers was impressive - stuff like Blue Moon as well as Koppaburg on tap! Gets busy for the football matches - especially Arsenal, but still a good vibe - no unsavory characters! Definately worth a try, I pop in regularly with the girlfriend so got a slice card to get 20% off food and drink all the time. Nice!

I had to wait at the bar for the barman to finish discussing the rota with a couple of off duty staff which is unacceptable. It�s this sort of attitude that made this place empty when the Hen and Chickens across the road was heaving � sort it out!

The drinks selection of standard draught and Amstel is what you would expect from a place that only exists for the drunken hoards on a Friday and Saturday night.

There are plenty of plasma screens dotted about and whilst I was there loud mass produced dance music was blaring out of the speakers, even though the pub was empty.

I finished my pint in the paved beer garden out the front whilst I looked over the road and wished I had stayed there.

Pretty ghastly pub/bar round the corner from Highbury and Islington station. Has a nice-ish garden out the front, and a large interior which no doubt gets hideously packed on Friday and Saturday nights. Service was poor: one barman who was seemingly unable to keep track of which order customers arrived in (thank you to the customer who politely pointed out I'd arrived well before her). No real ale. I note the comments below regarding the lavatories - the gents' were awful too - one cubicle had the door missing! Completely agree that this is unacceptable in what is clearly a Pubco venue - some money should be spent.

AWFUL!! The management are incredibly rude and I would never go back after the appalling way I was spoken to by the manager on duty.
