This estimable landmark echoes the days when Europe was exotic and Eusebio was king, and a trip to France or Spain meant table football, odd beers and little plates of delicious snacks.
Staff dish out Estrella Damm, Nastro Azzurro, Super Bock and Sagres from a counter festooned with bright bottle labels and blackboard promises of tasty tapas (in the evening). Groups here for table-football tournaments, played out on tables filling the scarf-and-programme-lined space between bar counter and terrace, can opt for meat or vegetarian platters; other options include sandwiches, salads and cheese boards. There are wines and cocktails, though you’d fit in better with beer.
Oh, and who put that Shrewsbury Town scarf among the illustrious colours of Milan, Fiorentina and St Etienne?

Rude and Aggressive
Not only was there no food available at 7pm but the bar staff were really rude and obnoxious. After having spent a lot of money in there they served us some warm beers and when I complained the bar tender refused to change mine (the others didn't want to complain) - he chose instead to call me a liar and accuse me of sitting on that beer for 25 minutes even though we'd been served by 5 minutes earlier. He even decided to ridicule me in front of all his 'regulars' sitting at the bar. Of all the options he could have chosen he chose this one, that pretty much sums this place up.
Tiny and cramped yet amazing and lively bar. Sister of the one on Shoreditch High St. Table football for all!
