This City Road pub might not have the most enticing of facades but inside many of still-on-trend boxes are ticked with the decor inside. That means bare brick walls, hanging filaments, church hall pews and fridges crammed with craft beers such as Anchor Steam Beer, Brooklyn Lager and a trio from London Fields Brewery.
A long drinks list offers cocktails too, with jugs of sangria, Pimm's and a Royal Star rum punch alongside mai tais, singapore slims, negronis and mojitos. The wine list focuses on the old world, with bottles supplemented by those from the USA, Argentina and New Zealand.
There's plenty of choice on the food menu, with options ranging from pizzas, pasta and burgers to traditional fish and chips and pan-fried salmon with chargrilled prawns and a rocket salad in a mango, papaya and red pepper sauce.

Absolutely dire. Went here as two other local pubs were very busy. Service was rude. Food was terrible; the fish platter to share consisted of four bowls of various breaded, deep fried fish which bore no resemblance to how it was described on the menu. For tempura prawns read frozen breaded prawns, deep fried. The rest was as bad if not worse. To make matters worse there was a power cut as we were ready for the bill. We were told we had to wait, as the credit card machines weren't working. After about 30 minutes they came and took our details. No apology, no offer of a drink while we waited, and they still expected us to pay. Terrible place. Avoid.
