Nothing remarkable looking about this pub from the outside, and the theme continues inside,a big open room full of tables ,chairs and some bench seating, and although a good percentage of them were full with mostly diners on an early weekday, late lunchtime, little in way of any pub atmosphere was being generated.Where this place does score would seem to be with the beer,four pumps were offering two beers from the Moor brewery,one from Red Ink and my choice, Magic Rock Ringmaster which was decent,there were some Craft offerings,I didn't note these. I didn't really take to this pub but given the beers available would take a look if passing in the future.

I loved American Werewolf in London,so it was only a matter of time before I landed here,fortunately the pub dog was a minature and there was no bad moon rising.The large picture windows and high ceiling give this wooden floored open plan bar an airy feel with the square bar protuding into the floor space.There is an unused fireplace,with a flatscreen above switched off,while seating consists of a long bench down one side,and an assortment of wooden tables and chairs elsewhere ,plus two obligatory leather sofas.The vibe is hip,some classy blues was playing at a calm level through the speakers and the clientele were mainly the young creatives who flock to this part of the capital.The big draw are the 18 craft keg taps,and a substantial bottled beer list .Beers and styles(Witbeir,Fruit Beers etc) from around the globe are featured here.For the ale drinker there are four handpumps drawing Thornbridge Lumford,Signature Brew Red Ale,Popes Brewing Victorian Chestnut Ale and London Fields Love not War(in very good nick,half £2.10) on my wet afternoon visit.
The food consists of sliders,single £3 or plate of three £7.50 besides a few pub staples,crispy squid and so on.Downstairs in the Basement,a free entry bar on Fridays 6pm -2am ,while at other times live music is performed,pay at the door.It's not huge down there ,but atmospheric and can be hired for a private party.
This place may not fit comfortably with pub traditionalists,but I liked the commitment to interesting beers and although craft keg is clearly king here,the ale range would be enough for me to warrant another visit.

This is a very busy night time bar.Large U shaped bar with a couple of real ales and a good selection of keg beers inc Camden beers. Loud music makes it difficult to speak but sign language helps to order a drink.Scooped the new London brewery Brupond in here.very good beer.May,be an afternoon visit might be best.Seriously good name for a pub.i like this pub.

This is a very large open plan u-shaped pub with a high ceiling so there needs to be quite a crowd in to generate any sort of atmosphere. It was busy enough though on my recent week night visit and I am reliably informed that it does get very busy at weekends with a twenty something crowd that would like you to think they have more money than sense.

Whilst I was waiting to be served I spotted a couple of real ales lurking at the other end of the bar and there was also a good premium draught selection. I was a little shocked by acrimonious attitude of the barmaid when I was finally served, but I did get a nice pint of Guinness to sup whilst listening to some decent background music.

Whilst searching for the poorly signed toilets I came across a downstairs function room with its own bar. There were a good few people bopping away in there, but I’m not sure if it was a private party or a night organized by the pub.

I would have no problem revisiting this pub if it wasn’t for the attitude of the barmaid as manners are something that I hold in high regard.
