Not too bad for a small shop conversion. Ive been in here a few times whilst waiting for the Bus too Southgate after coming out the station. The Guinness is usually very good and staff seen very friendly.

You couldn't mistake an afternoon in this pub for anything but a Wishing Well as it has plenty of plasma screens all showing horse racing and a few old Irish boys shouting obscenities at the screen whilst waving worthless betting slips in the air.

As is to be expected the barmaid was very friendly, but the crowd seemed more transient and grubby than usual. The usual suspects were all lined up along the bar so I opted for a Guinness which was very nice. Whilst I was waiting for it to settle I spotted a dartboard case on the wall, but it was closed and there was no oche so I am not sure that there is a board in it.

Some old Irish music was playing in the background, but it was fighting with the commentary of the racing which was a little frustrating.

I have been in better Wishing Wells than this one so I doubt that I'd return here.
