A small street corner boozer with a carpeted interior and large windows in two sections,the back room is more convivial with a fitted bench running around the walls,a central dartsboard which looked unused to me and two flatscreens.There were pictures of gaellic football side Kerry around here ,although on my visit there was no strong Irish prescence among the smattering of customers.Opposite the bar and at the front are more fitted benches,small tables and a tiny brick fireplace housing a gas fire.A few old posters featuring Arsenal FC are dotted about but with no enthusiasm but perhaps necessary given how close the Emirates is.A third flatscreen dominates here and with all three screens covering live Sky football this destroyed any ambiance given the volume.
At the bar there were 2 handpumps both clipped with GK IPA,clear but with a nasty tang and a total rip off at £2 the half.Most punters were drinking nationally branded keg lager,and although it may be old school ,it's not a pub I could recommend nor plan to revisit.

This is an Irish pub, in that it is frequented by Irishmen (perhaps women too, but there weren't any in when I visited). They did have one ale on - GKIPA at £3 a pint. There was no sign of any food on Tuesday afternoon.

The pub is traditionally furnished, with upholstered banquettes, normal chairs, and metal framed tables. The floor was carpeted. There was a dartboard at the back of the room, and at the front was a TV on showing the ladies' darts. There are a few potted plants dotted around, and the overall impression was a clean and well maintained pub. All quite normal, and much appreciated by yours truly who just wanted a quiet dink in a comfortable pub. This pub is nothing exceptional, and the ale selection won't win ny prizes, but it's a lot better than some pubs around this area.
