A mix of vintage furniture, dimmed lighting and candles make for a cosy atmosphere at this Stoke Newington boozer. Real ales on tap are London Pride, Deuchars IPA and Harvey's Sussex Best, while the lengthy cocktail list eschews the classics for more unusual concoctions. A bison martini mixes Zubrowka bison grass vodka with smooth crème de pêche and apple juice, while the fruity mango daiquiri is not short of a strong rum shot. There's a small menu that offers Argentinean-style barbecued food such as chivito, an Argentinean steak sandwich.
