A vaguely L-shaped interior with the aquamarine coloured bar counter straight ahead on entering, boarded flooring and some exposed brickwork behind the bar. The angel theme is reinforced by a wall mural of some ecclesiastical stone carved examples. Mixed seating including brown button backed banquettes and also some recycled church type chairs with the rear bible pockets. Stairs lead up to somewhere I didn't visit.
Three on, initially I plumped for something called Herbalist Hoppy Saison, a collaboration brew from Adnams and Magic Rock. Thankfully the barmaid suggested a taster first, a good move as it was not to my taste at all. Next choice was Hobgoblin which spluttered and died, leaving Doom Bar. Instead I had a quick half of Sierra Nevada. Busy with suits dining.
An unremarkable pub without anything to entice me back.

This is an ex-Taylor Walker pub which has recently been denuded of its TW regalia. Bare boarded with banquettes, ordinary furniture, panelled walls painted a shade of gastro blue and some bare brick; lighting is a bit industrial. Music played at too loud a level and there was a TV which was off. Clients seemed to comprise locals and transients.
Ales: two unused pumps and one each dispensing Sharp's Doom Bar and Fuller's London Pride which were off - early evening. So, no real ale then, my half of Camden Hell's Lager cost a nasty £2.55.
This is by no means a great pub and I can't see myself returning.

Good ground floor bar with extra seating upstairs.Nice pale painted interior with interesting light fittings.Two boring cask beers -Pride and Doombar but good keg list with Brewdog,O,dells and Meantime -amirillo amber which was too cold and fizzy.
