When it just opend we went loads because it was a welcome addition to the area. A massive selection of beers, but food has always just been ok and sometimes not so ok. Stopped going altogether now because last time the landlord shortchanged me twice in the same evening but was clearly too cool and destined for a higher purpose to be nice or apologetic about it. Back to the island queen and duke of wellington for much friendlier staff.

Abysmal. Went their last friday for a friends birthday last week and got off to a bad start at the bar with some failed actress type barmaid who had a significant issues with asking for a medium wine instead of small wine. Moving in from that we went to go to the garden where our friends were located but were told by the doorman that it wss too busy for anyone else out there, despite it being half full. We then left for the isle an queen a much better pub. Generally nowhere near as good as it thinks it is, terrible service in a pub that is desperate to be in shoreditch


The best pub in Islington, an ever changing beer selection, terrific food and friendly staff....how pubs should be!


This pub has massively improved - it reopened about a month ago, and now the bar has about 15 proper beers on tap at once! The food is decent and the staff were friendly and courteous. All good in my opinion.


Popped in for a drink today and took advantage of the beer garden. Extensive range of drinks, in particular beers and ales. Knowledgable and friendly staff. Very pleasant experience. Will be back.
