Worth pointing out that Jeff has now moved on, which is a shame. Still, he's got the place open and trading again at a high level. Perhaps he will turn into the Red Adair of London boozers?

Feb 2015
The new venture for Jeff ‘Stonch’ Bell late of the Gunmakers, this is a place that has been closed for some time and has re-opened as a craft beer pub. As also mentioned below, there is a theatre upstairs. Classic flat-iron shaped pub abutting a junction. Tick-shaped, with some exposed brick, green metro tiling, old tim advertising boards and large windows letting in plenty of light. A downside of the interior is that the acoustics are poor, even when fairly quiet. Apparently there’s a downstairs cellar bar but I didn’t spot it. There’s a DJ booth so I presume live music must happen here occasionally. Pizzas can be ordered from the place next door and eaten in the pub, who provide crockery. Not cheap but I can attest that they are proper wood-fired discs of loveliness. Busy on my early afternoon visit as it was a winter ales festival being held in the pub which was quickly augmented by Chelsea and Bradford City fans of a more discerning hue, popping in for a couple of pre-match liveners. At the bar were a good number of brews, six in all – I tried the Black Blenheim (superb shape), Portobello Chestnut (good) and a beer from Cullercoats which despite being in good nick was quite dreadful in taste (see John Gray’s review below). I know Stonch is a fan of theirs but frankly I’d ask for a taster before you take the plunge with them. Also to note is a generous CAMRA discount on pints, so remember to flash your card! All-in-all, this is a good venture and I’d be looking to do this one again (sans Cullercoats!). Rated 8

I certainly warmed to this pub,although empty early Saturday afternoon, Chelsea weren't playing and the Theatre upstairs was taking a break, yet it was instantly ,to me ,one of those pubs that has an atmosphere of its own,a good ,chatty and informative landlord in Jeff soon to be ex of the Gunmakers in Clerkenwell,and some very good beer indeed,three beers on whilst I was there and the two I tried (ELB Cowcather and Twickenham Naked Ladies) were in tip top condition.Interestingly there was also two real ciders and a perry occupying three handpumps.£3.90 across the board for the cask beers, if you are a CAMRA member this drops down to £3.50 if you show your card. A destination pub for me, will return undoubtedly many times in the future.
