3rd Jun 2013 - Always forget this place is here so I've only visited a couple of times. On a friday night its packed full of trendy Islingtonites. By packed I mean heaving at least when I've visited and that included the vast amount of traditional picnic tables in the front garden/terrace area. As a trendy pub it obviously has a trendy menu with the ever present fish finger sandwich just to highlight how cool they are. On my lunchtime visit the staff were very friendly and efficient and my half pint of All American was very nice. The till didn't register what a half pint was but they charged me correctly and fiddled with the till for a few minutes. I have no idea if the problem was resolved but I suggest everyone who can goes in and orders a half. In what is a pub more suited for groups(at least two tables of ten or more were in the main area) I didnt find it a particularly comfortable spot to relax and read. However I f all my imaginary friend were out it would be a suitable venue. I liked most of it although the Cash machine at the end of the bar charging customers £1.75 per withdrawal was a bit of an eyesore and insult to customers already paying a decent price especially for the food which is about a quid more than most trendy bars for each item on the menu. Also Im not a big fan of high tables especially if its surrounded by low tables and getting off a stool can involve thrusting my groin in some poor buggers face. All in all a nice pub with an ok beer selection.
