5th Mar 2012 - In a back street just of upper street sits this very un islington pub. I couldn't find a single poncey w**ker in the whole pub. Amazing. The only w**ker i spotted was staring at me and copying my every movement whilst i washed my hands in the bog. He looked familiar. The pub is pretty small and feels more like a small town pub with a few locals in. I can see why, it was not over crowded but was busy and had an atmosphere that wasn't created by some prat of a dj. It was just happy being a pub. The beer on offer wasn't exceptional but there is at least one ale that gets rotated and a couple of regulars. A nice pub with a good mix of people and it would survive anywhere in the country with its good service and all round friendliness. It did have a menu but i didn't look and couldn't see anyone else eating so I have no idea what the foods like. A good place to meet before heading on to more exciting things.
