Situated on a apex plot between two residential roads.The front beer garden ,hidden behind ivy and trimmed bushes is very popular with the young professionals and their offspring in good weather in this trendy part of N1.The pub itself has some character and original features as mentioned by PSM below,with the serving bar in a front section,to the left is marked as the Gun Hill bar ,with mainly metal furniture it looked more of an overlow area ,while to the right is a wait to be seated dining area.To the left of the entrance is a brick faced real fireplace and Sky Sports flatscreen above ,sensibly on mute with the Test match on.
Just two ales avalable on my trip,Crouch Vale Brewers Gold and St Austell Proper Job (tangy ,not right NBSS 1.5). Even my heated baquette was dry and slightly burnt at the edges and the dippy serving crew were more interested in their gossiping.The vibe maybe laid back but shouldn't be comatose.The visit should have been so much better,but a "can't be bothered " attitude can ruin a pubs reputation.Jog on by.

This is a nice wedge-shaped pub nestled into the crook of a road junction, with the ‘thin end of the wedge’ cut-off to form a pleasant patio garden area with a high hedge border. Entering through the garden, you find yourself in the main bar area which is bare boarded and has the servery on the opposite wall. The bar has a dark wood counter and attractive matching bar back with some etched glass mirrors, an integral clock, a collection of ceramic jugs and the rather unique feature of various framed crisp packets. Bench and chair seating fills the front part of the room and includes on large table covered with a William Morris style tablecloth. The walls are half panelled and there are leaded windows and a brick fireplace, which all add a bit of charm to the place and give it more of a traditional feel than you might otherwise expect. A large instrument panel of indeterminate origin stands next to the entrance, providing some quirky visual distraction. Moving further back, there is a dining area through to the right, which is carpeted and has lots of formally set tables and chairs, another fireplace and lots of old photos on the walls. The rear left space looks like some sort of function room with a huge pull-down screen showing some live football, lots more tables and chairs and muted lighting, perhaps to enhance the view of the screen. There were vases of fresh flowers on most tables, colourful bunting hung from the ceiling beams and pop tunes played quietly in the background.
I noted three cask ales on the handpulls – Yardbird Pale Ale, St Austell Proper Job and Crouch Vale Brewers Gold. The latter was a very reasonable £3.70 a pint and in pretty decent shape, served to me by a pretty surly barman who was the only downer in a pub that seemed to have quite a nice, friendly vibe to it. A decent selection of craft keg beers was also apparent on the long fonts running around the bar.
I wasn’t really expecting to find anything much to write home about in these gentrified back streets, but I thought this was a very nice pub with some good beer, comfortable seating and an interesting interior that has mixed traditional and contemporary in an effective manner.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Scolt Head

Quite an impressive façade, although you only see the top peeking above the tall evergreen hedges on two sides of the triangular front patio garden as you approach. Once inside, the square bar has bare floorboards and a mix of furniture, with further seating / dining areas to one side and at the back. Some original features survive, such as several green-bordered windows, and for reasons unknown, there are old electrical panels with lots of dials on each side of the main entrance. I found two of three handpumps in use, offering Greene King Yardbird and Proper Job (£4.00), with a reversed Crouch Vale Brewers Gold clip also noted.
