It was quite lively when I called in here, though it was not yet 6pm. There were two hand pumps on the bar, one with Sharps Doom Bar and the other with something called Grubber, which I guessed, rightly as it turns out, was likely to be a golden ale from Greene King. So I had a half of Doom Bar, which was in reasonable nick and came in at £1.95, considerably cheaper than the Harrison around the corner. There was an unfortunate smell near the bar which reminded me of vomit - I hope this was a temporary manifestation and I wouldn't let it put me off another visit if I were to find myself in the vicinity with time for a drink.

Unashamed locals pub with a bit of charm, in the backstreets by Kings Cross. Nice tiling on the exterior which also sports original leaded windows. Inside it’s a large open-plan square room with a pseudo-Irish theme. As mentioned below, it’s quite cluttered with various bits and bobs - items of note include framed sports (hurling?) shirts, a pair of skis mounted above the bar, darts and pool. A passing attempt at sophistication with candles atop the battered tables. The mark of a true local included a nondescript old boy snoozing away. Just GK Abbot at the bar though it was in fair shape and under 4 quid. The landlady was friendly and bade me a farewell. Despite having little to draw me back, I had a soft spot for this place and it was worth my 10 minutes.
