Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Boston Arms

Landmark pub opposite Tufnell Park tube station, with a substantial bar within the sharply angled footprint. Inside, it is a refurbished Irish pub with a fairly pedestrian drinks selection, but at least the solitary handpump was working and dispensed a surprisingly reasonable pint of Greene King Molecule of Life (£3.10). Music venue with separate entrance at the back on one side and the separate Dome nightclub / venue upstairs.

This place was very busy on Friday evening with students and drunken old men. There are plenty of plasma screens, two pool tables (one of which was out of use) and a dart board tucked away in the corner. The pub itself is open plan and it has a grubby unwelcoming feel to it.

John Smiths, Guinness, Bulmers and standard lagers are all available from the disinterested bar staff.

I don't think that I'll be venturing into here again in the near future.

I'm not a fan of Irish pubs and bars at the best of times but this was one of the most depressing, miserable and intimidating pubs that I have been in. Unappealing from the outside with signs promoting cheap drinks (£2 a pint before 7 Monday to Friday) which naturally act as a magnet for the local drunks and society drop outs. The plain and dull interior revolves around the multiple (I counted at least 5) plasma TV's that screen wall to wall racing, football and Gaelic sports. Neither the pub nor its inhabitants display any degree of charm or friendliness and some of the groups looked like they could be quite threatening if you glanced in the wrong direction. The only attraction on the beer front is the prices and, like most Irish bars, the place is off limits for Ale drinkers. The wait to be served was doubly agonizing knowing that the plethora of drunks gathered at the bar appeared ready to engage in some form of indistinguishable conversation. Naturally the regulars are served first and the staff seemed to be adverse to anything that resembles table clearing. I am sure the regular punters have a whale of a time here every night but I'm afraid cheap beer and cliquey clentelle does not make a great pub to an outsider and unless you are part of the crowd, as most posters below appear to be, there is little in the Boston Arms to be recommended
