Having done a couple of small open mic nights in the past , I thought I'd pop in here to try my luck . It's a friendly pub not more than 10 min walk from Stockwell station .

Overall this is a nice little pub with a decent room for music and comedy too! I'm not a regular but I've been to a few events here over the years and recently attended a comedy night.

Tripadvisor wants us to rate this as a restaurant but I'm not sure it really fits into the restaurant category. Its basic bar meals good for keeping the... More
