Been here a few times and walked the 10 mins from Angel. A good tap list here including beers from their own microbrewery. A new keg is put on on a Tuesday I think. Nice large single roomed pub, nice heritage decor. Have issues with the beer quality on 1 visit with the beer tasting of line cleaner, only happened once though. Staff weren’t overly helpful then but have been good on other visits

Nice neat pub, selection wasn’t too amazing however but it was sunday just after the weekend so I understand. Had some interesting beers on tap, good place to visit if you’re in the area. UPDATE Revisited last week. Mazing selection both on tap and bottle. Had their newest DIPA which was top. Really great unpretentious place, Will definitely visit again.

A brewpub located in central Islington just off the Regent’s Canal. Two of their own beers were available at my visit. The beer board lists 18 different beers on keg and cask. It’s a medium sized, four-sided pub with the bar and a brewery plant in the middle. Rock, reggae and blues (Canned Heat) in the background. Crowed and rather noisy early on a Tuesday evening, mostly younger clientele. For dinner I had a delicious dish of Wintered Lamb with tzatziki. Friendly service with food and beer recommendations. Well worth drinking and eating here even though the pub obviously can be very noisy at times. Sister pub to Kings Arms in Bethnal Green and the rock venue/pub Black Heart in Camden (visited 23.09.2014).

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

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.
