A quite historic pub this, and as resolutely Irish as they come.
The interior is much as described with some modernish wood panelling and floor and bar with a slightly raised area to the front corner. However, there's some fantastic polychromatic Victorian tiling and mirrors. Otherwise it's a bit tatty.
There's a pool table to the rear and a few TVs showing the horse racing.
As you'd expect in a pub catering for Celtic customers, there's no ale and the Irish landlady was accommodating enough but this place held few surprises and I don't envisage a return visit.

The Mother Red cap is a corner pub that is situated at the top end of Holloway Road and close to Archway tube station.
Once inside there is a U shaped room which is bare boarded,there is bench seating to the front with small stools,plus a drinking shelf on the left side which had chairs to sit on.
The TVs were showing rugby and there was a pool table to the rear left.
There were no real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Worthington Cream Flow,which was a poor drink.
Not a pub to go out of your way to do,but i was on a crawl and trying to do all pubs on Holloway Road.
It seemed friendly enough to me.
