We weren't here for a gig, so spent our fairly brief visit in the downstairs (ie. ground floor) room. What I learned from this visit is what "bordello baroque" looks like; it fitted in quite well here. Other less usually seen decor was the guns (replicas I was assured by a companion who seemed to know about these things) on the back wall, and skulls of deer and similar mammals, complete with horns and antlers, on all the walls. Furnishings are fairly straightforward, with mainly normal recycled dining room tables with normal chairs, and a few booths along one side. The interior has obviously been drastically altered over the years, now with a raised DJ booth at the back and the bar counter now resited by the window.

The four pumps are still at the far end of the counter. Unfortunately three had reversed clips, with the fourth having Five Points Best on. The Best was OK, being a very ordinary brown beer. A music venue having four ales on is good going, and I accept that visiting at lunchtime when it was quiet we were just unlucky that only one ale was available. I actually quite liked the pub, being better than I expected.

Here for a gig upstairs so didn’t spend much time in the main bar. In a nutshell; very high ceiling, soft muted sodium style lighting, many curtains, red and cream flock wallpaper (described on WhatPub as ‘bordello baroque’) – some will hate it, I quite liked it. Four pumps apologetically tucked away at the far right end of the long bar. Three on with a decent selection from Redemption, Hammerton and Sambrooks. I went for the Hammerton N7 which was in decent shape (NBSS 3). The venue upstairs is pretty good, the bar downstairs is decent also. So a fair bet if you are traversing between Angel and KCX and certainly one of the nicer small music venues in London.

A large street corner Victorian pub,better known as a live music venue.The ground floor is open plan with a ticket booth immediately to the right on entering with stairs leading to the entertainment.There is lots of wood panelling,a very high ceiling and a good looking bar running the full length of the opposite side.A table football machine,an upright piano and a raised mixing desk are all evident,while a small gallery runs above floor level to one side.Every wooden table has a tea light,the chandelier gives out a murky light,while the presence of a stuffed eagle,goat's skull and antlers completes the gothic scene,embellished by flock wallpaper.
At the bar there were 4 handpumps but with three clips reversed on a Friday evening at 6pm,leaving hobsons choice of GK Rockin' Rudolph which was declined.There are 6 craft keg taps from which I chose Lagunitas IPA which tasted good but £3 the half was exorbitant.Another 5 keg taps had the usual multinational dross.
A better real ale range would have resulted in a higher mark,I got the impression that isn't a priority here.
