I must have walked past this pub many times on the way along the busy Holloway Road to or from the nearby Emirates Stadium, without having really noticed it. However, its inclusion in the latest Good Beer Guide drew my attention to it and I paid my first visit on Monday.

As the previous reviewer states, it's very dark inside. Lighting is provided by tealights on the tables, with the bar providing a little light too. 3 real ales are served. On our visit, these were Redemption Trinity & Fellowship & Five Points Best. My Trinity was a little lightweight at just 3%. Craft beers were Three Sods American Porter, Five Points XPA & Good Point Well Made, Signature Roadie, Anspach & Hobday Passion Fruit Sour, Orbit Peel & Howling Hops Dunes of the Cape & Tropical Deluxe. The fizzy cider was Umbrella.

I may not pass by so readily in future, but I suspect it gets very busy on matchdays and is probably still best avoided.

Possibly the darkest pub I have ever been in, with dark painted walls and ceilings and illumination restricted to half a dozen red bulbs over the bar and a scattering of candles and candle-effect bulbs, otherwise just lights from the street outside. It seemed to have a long room front and back of the central bar with tables, but difficult to be sure! Very friendly though and with 3 ales on handpump - 5 Points Best and Kent Brewery Session and Cobnut - plus a fair selection of craft, most of which change regularly by all accounts. It would score higher if you could see what you were drinking.

I last came here in September 1993 when this was the Flounder & Firkin. Previously it was Barcosa and has now recently been refurbished and renamed as the Lamb, presided over by the countenance of Jesus Christ no less.

Little can be added to the last review, but as a Firkin it was all pale wood with portholes in the floor through which the mash tuns could be seen. Today however it is an extraordinarily gloomy pub. Is the lighting so low to cover a multitude of sins? This is probably the best pub at this end of Holloway Road though there's not much remaining at this end other than the Famous Cock at Highbury Corner.
