A staple watering hole of my youth, this is a late Georgian pub originally called the Old Pied Bull. As mentioned below, this place is a fairly predictable Islington pub conversion. Predictably walls are either bare brick or part panelled painted pale grey, adorned with theatre flyers. There's some unattractive industrial ductwork and a metal helical stair leads upwards; naturally the floor is bare boarded. Furniture is fairly conventional and there are some high butchers' block tables.
Ales: Sharp's Doom Bar, Purity's Ubu and Acorn Brewery's Barnsley Gold at £2.20 a half and good.
I'd give this place a 5 if it were more of a pub, but otherwise there's no reason to avoid it.

Another "if you have seen one you have seen them all" Islington pubs. Bare floors,bare tables and vastly inflated prices. There were 3 real ales on with nothing to write home about. The interior has been grahically discribed earlier.
