Very nice brewpub, great selection on tap. Beer garden on the back. Had surprisingly few Earl’s beers on offer.

Quite nice brewpub. Good servic on a slow monday afternoon. Nice cask selection and a good bottle list. Worth a visit even if it takes some time to get there.

A very nice bar, but the stunner is the great big garden in the back. Service was good and beer selection with the bottles is quite nice with a big range. Their own few beers were good as well. Food is nice. Overall a really nice stop I would recommend.

Lovely area. Lovely pub. Fantastic selection of really great beers. Young, trendy punters. I love the church style beer board. One of the very best pubs.

(Visited Nov 2013) Modern pub in a residential area between Angel and Old Street stations. Visited on a Friday evening, so it was quite crowded, noisy and a bit gloomy. Young and fairly hip clientèle. Quite a large place with a long bar in front of you when entering. Available beers on a board on the wall to the left. Five or six cask ales according to the board, but most of them were gone, instead they had "some blond ale from Bristol, not on the list" (no more information available on that one). Interesting selection of keg beers, some from British micros and some from European or American breweries. The place is listed as a brewpub, but no evidence of brewing equipment or own beers were available. Service was friendly and efficient. Not really a great first impression, but the place seems to have some potential, so I’ll check it out again at a more favourable time. (Revisited Apr 2014) Came back on a Thursday afternoon in April, and this was a far better visit. They had 5 or 6 cask ales of good quality and around 15 keg beers, mainly from the UK, but also from Germany, Denmark and Spain. Friendly and efficient service. Nice place, worth a visit.

A great neighborhood pub in Angel. Good beer selection that differs a bit from most other pubs in London. Occasionally they’ll have one of their own beers on. The prices are good for London and they’ll pour thirds of all draft beers. Nice beer garden out back with several tables. Friendly, efficient service. I’ve never had to wait long for a beer even when it’s packed. They hosted Zwanze day the past two years and did a great job.

None of it’s own bar, as seems usual, Decent enough selection of keg and cask. Pricey but worth a visit.

Excellent service and friendly staff. My problem, like at so many British pubs, is the similar tasting cask ales. There were five on cask and 13 on keg when I visited, but none of the casks impressed me, including Magic Rock Ringmaster, and the kegs were a mixture of boring Belgians (Steen brugge, come on!) And surprisingly boring pale ales from the US an UK. One tiny stout and that was it.

They didn’t have any of their own beers on at my visit, but they had enough different cask beers to satisfy me, although a few of them were on in several other London pubs at the same time. It was somewhat crowded at my visit on a Sunday afternoon and thus the service was a bit slow. Easy to combine with a visit to Craft Beer Co. Islington or to reach via tube.
