One large room with bar to rear. Eating area to right and a large beer garden to the front. Four hand pumps and a large selection of keg. Not particularly inspiring.

The main area consists of a long rectangular room with the long bar opposite the front wall, centrally split by a curved bay. Scuffed floorboards, the services are exposed at ceiling level, opposite the bar are a row of high butchers block tables with stools, better seating elsewhere at banquettes and tables including a curved banquette around the front bay and a pair of pews at one end. The area extends a bit to the right beyond a fireplace into an area which looks to be purely for dining with an open kitchen adjacent, this runs through into a conservatory type space. Loads of seating outside to the front, much of which is painted sky blue but also includes a barbecue area. No one out there today on a day of persistent rain.
There are clipboard menus on the tables, the dining area has copper cooking vessels suspended from the ceiling, little else of interest, the place felt a bit clinical.
Four handpumps, Doom Bar, Proper Job (£4.55), Truman's Fire and Dandy and one unclipped.
To me the pub felt devoid of atmosphere and a bit dismal, in fairness the weather was awful, the pub is large but had more staff than customers at the time but despite these counter points there is still something lacking.

We popped in here for a swift half on route back to Highbury Corner, after visiting the Snooty Fox. Four handpumps on the bar, with three in use, Redemption Trinity, Thornbridge Jaipur and Doombar. I went for the Jaipur, which I haven't had for a good while, so it hit the spot. This is a well kept pub with a comfortable interior seating wise and no loud music on our Monday afternoon visit. The large seating area outside with some timber huts was impressive, so too was the large conservatory at the far end of the pub.
