A first time in here the other night and Mr. Duck's not wrong when he describes this as being a pub for football fans but with added slightly chavvy transients. The floor is modern bare boarded with lots of wood panelling painted dark or pale grey. There are semi-industrial lights with low wattage filament bulbs. Furniture is mixed and there are games machines and loud music. In addition there are more TVs showing sport than a branch of Argos and in mid-October, there are nascent Christmas decorations.
Ales: Hobgoblin, Sharp's Doom Bar, Sambrook's Wandle and Hammerton's N7, price not clocked but good.
This isn't a great place and could easily be mistaken for a 'spoons and I wont' be returning.

Busy formula pub catering for football fans on my visit, only two beers on, an uninspiring pair of Sharps Doom Bar and Atlantic. I wouldn't bother again.

There were three ales on in here - The Sharp's pairing of Atlantic and Doom Bar (of course), plus Rev James Blond. The Rev James came up rank, and the barmaid dipped a straw into my beer to test a drop or two of it. She wasn't entirely convinced as the beer wasn't cloudy, but changed it anyway. Interesting technique for testing beer quality - not seen it before. Food is available from a typical pubco glossy menu. Bangers and mash are £8.95, but "pies, glorious pies" is the main culinary offering with eight to choose from all at the seemingly standard price of £8.95.

It's typical pubco inside. The pubco in question is the Tattershall Castle Group (new one on me), but the ambience and layout is typical of pubcos like Stonegate or Taylor Walker. There's a wedge of tall tables/tall stools at the front of the room, with some normal tables and chairs ranged around the central island bar. There is a handful of picnic benches outside on the pavement.

This is a bustling pub at the Angel end of the heaving Upper St. It's handily placed on a main road I guess, but there's not really anything about it that would draw me back.
