I visited the bar/music venue last night, all the staff were highly professional, polite and helpful. Special mention to the lovely member of staff who was working in the bar downstairs, who despite being under pressure served everyone promptly and with a smile on her face. Well run venue with a very good team, (including the security team) will be... More

Came here for a night out in Islington and wasn't disappointed. Food was great, beer was top notch and the staff were very friendly and helpful. 100% recommended!!

Came for the theatre which was outstanding!....but....ordered a pint of Amstel which genuinely tasted like it was half diluted with water. Took it to the bar again and informed the barmaid very kindly that it was flat(which it absolutely was)...only to be told that "that's how Amstel is"...hmmmmm...really? I informed her that Amstel is my beer of choice when I... More

I was looking for a place to eat nearby the Islington Assembly Hall before a gig, this seemed one of the cheapest options. Reasonably priced, good pub grub, good selection of drinks on offer from what I saw, and a nice, relaxed atmosphere. Spotted that it also acts as a theatre too but didn't know it's a live music venue... More

London's home to rock and punks with bands appearing there from Dire Straights to The Ramones it's a relief that this pub is still going strong A airy bar area with a warm welcome and a great range of independent beers. The food menu has a great selection of tasty dishes from a 'starter' of slider burgers-2x smoked brisket beef... More

I hope this is the very same pub others have written up. I question only because we had a great meal and would highly recommend eating here. Many of the Trip Advisor reviews do not match our experience at all. There is always a crowd and fortunately we arrived sufficiently early, before heading to The Old Vic. There were obviously...

I was last in this Pub in 1982. I was a lot younger and remember this pub a lot differently than it is now. For better or for worse this was my first pub and it will always be my favorite. The beer is still excellent and this is one of my favorite places to visit and hang out for... More
