A drop-by here with Retriedmartin en route to see the mighty Prolapse. Almost no discernible changes to report. A number of cask on and our Redemption Big Chief was in great shape. Beer menus at the tables, freshly printed as they included the cask offerings by name. Prices were very reasonable for London, so fair play – my Big Chief was £3.80pp and the most expensive beer was £4.20. A few people in so it looks like it’s holding it own (maybe that influx I predicted happened…?). A worthy place to seek out and enjoy a pint or two, though it does lack that bit of intrinsic warmth to make it a true stand-out in London; as noted below, ‘comfort is not a high priority here’. 7.5

February 2014
One of the new wave of craft pubs that are springing up round London. This one is located in an area where I imagine isn’t quite ready for it (judging by the ethnicity of most of the locals we walked past on the way who I imagine answer the call to prayer rather than the call to bar), but I suspect the owners are planning ahead for the inevitable influx of those with a disposable income priced out of whatever the current hot areas of the capital are. At the bar: six ale pumps, 14 keg (with a good number of overseas imports). All taps unlabelled, look to the right hand wall for black and white signage listing the beers and prepare to take a sharp intake of breath if you aren’t acquainted with craft bar prices. An inevitably eclectic selection, I plumped for the Anarchy Rum and Raisin which was really rather tasty and in good shape. Obligatory hipster barman who was pretty good at his job, to be fair. An island bar (with a nice metro-tiled sort-of bar back) allows for a variety of seating areas. Interior décor a bit stark, consisting of dark green tongue-and-groove panelling and basic wooden seating. Framed and mounted insect and butterfly/moth specimens were of interest. Flowers also present on the tables. I wouldn’t be averse to a revisit here. Rated 7

This pub is essentially unchanged since previous reviewers' visits. The pumps are unclipped, with the beer board on the wall on the right indicating the available beers (cask and keg) and draught ciders. There were four cask ales on - the cheapest being the Dark Star Hophead at £3.80 a pint. My chum and I went for the Marble Manchester Bitter at £4 a pint, which was in excellent condition. Food seemed to consist of bar snacks - at least it did on our midday Friday visit. I saw cheeseboards and meatboards advertised for £8, and scotch eggs at £5 or £6 (I would expect them to pretty impressive specimens for that sort of price).

Just about everything in here is painted a sort of indigo/green colour, and on all the walls there seemed to be framed specimens of insects, including many butterflies. This could be the Entomoligist's Arms. So far so OK - but on the minus side I found the place quite uncomfortable. The seating seemed to comprise mainly of hard wooden benches around the sides of the room, and when I was in the heating didn't seem to have kicked in, and with the door kept open it never got warm enough to take our coats off. As good as the Marble Manchester Bitter was, we didn't linger over our pints for as long as we might otherwise have done. It might be nicer at another time, but I couldn't help but reach the conclusion that comfort is not a high priority here.
