An absolute gem; a traditional London pub which stands, unchanged, as though time had stood still. The interior is wonderfully old-fashioned, cozy and inviting, the staff are friendly and attentive and they offer a good selection of ales, wines and anything else that takes your fancy. There aren't many left like this!

Proper pub has been here for years and will stay for years. Great beer in a relaxed place where everyone is welcome. What made and makes London great!!!!

A relaxed, back-street corner pub in Stoke Newington with a small amount of outdoor space around front and side and a slightly less appealing beer garden at the back that's really more like a yard with picnic tables. The USP here could be that drinkers are welcome to go and get a pizza from the takeaway next door and bring it in (or sit outside) and eat it. There's Leffe Blond on tap and perfectly drinkable wines by the glass. The jukebox has an excellent range of soul, R&B (as in old-style R&B), jazz and Captain Beefheart. Monday night is quiz night.
