Corner pub with a single downstairs room and some uninvestigated upstairs seating. I'm not sure of the image they were trying to project with exposed industrial ducting snaking around the ceiling and then an attempt at quirkyness with milk churn stools and fork handle handpumps, the three of these offered up just Doom Bar with the promise of Landlord coming soon. I settled for a half of Camden Hells on keg at pocket teasing £3.00. Not likely to return.

An attractive and prepossessing building on a junction next to the entrance to the marketplace. Inside the interior has inevitably succumbed to modish modernisation but in fairness is pretty tastefully done. Original floorboards have been sanded, stained and varnished, the colour scheme is a muted olive grey colour and there are attractive fabric banquettes spanning one side of the room. Craft beer is the big buzz here, with a wall dispensing six from Goose Island, Beavertown and a couple of lesser lights at hilariously inflated prices (£6.40 for a pint of 4.5% Shoreditch Blonde, anyone?). Three cask pumps (or, more accurately, spade handles) with just a single one on, Truman's Swift. My half was a surprisingly cheap at £1.85 although the barmaid attempted to short change me by the tune of 3 quid from a fiver. When challenged, I was then over-changed by a pound. P45 for her. My eventual half was pretty good. Hipster/Trustafarian/Young professional crowd bar the obviously out of place fearsome-looking local who was snorting away like an aggravated bull, replete with a cuddly staffie. Not too bad, though I suspect its obvious shortcomings would preclude a revisit.
