Awesome pub. Iíve been here three times for their beer festival. The setup is classic British pub. Plenty of seating, lots of beer ephemera, dim lighting, worn wood. The beer selection was great when I was there, what with the festival and everything. On a normal day it looked like they would have eight cask ales going. Prices were good, service was kind and attentive. Will return for sure.

Quite small, but really nice boozer. Good range of cask and keg. Lovely atmosphere, charming old furniture. Easy to find.

Another place I finally got round to visiting (mostly because it doesnít open at weekends). It is located just off Old Street, adjacent to a housing estate. A great balance between traditional boozer and a good contemporary beer selection. The focus is clearly on micro UK breweries. Quite an extensive selection of both keg and cask, with the likes of Magic Rock, Dark Star, Fyne, Camden Town and Windsor & Eaton on at my last visit. A great place to come for a wide range of Kernel in bottle (about 8/9). Good value traditional pub grub also on offer. The fact they have a fish tank there is a bonus. All-round great pub, its just a shame they donít open at weekends.

Great pub , it was one of my favourite when I lived in London .. Good selection of cask always changing .. I never had any food in there but the salt beef sandwich looks good .. They have 6/7 beers from kernel brewery which is a great thing because all of them are delicious ... Well worth a visit !

Old pub, dark and woody. Interesting selection of taps, cask and keg, several that I wanted to drink. Lots of Moor. Good place.

A cozy, smaller city pub, very nice and quiet pub, only open weekdays. Now and then they have a smaller festival, where they then have a range of beers from one brewery. Last we visited it was Saltaire.
They have a big aquarium, which is nice looking at while enjoying the beer. It is possible to eat here as well, traditionel pub food and pizzaīs, very nice.
They have a very friendly staff, they make you feel very velcome, the beers are well served and in good condition.

Really nice refrained boozer. Classic English style. Really nice laid back atmosphere. No arrogance. No attitude. The beer festivals are good. Not too expensive and honest. Just what you want in a taditional boozer. Good range of Brew Dog beers in bottle condition. Nice cask ales. Lots of emphasis of micros and this is something I always respect.

Paid first visit here on 07/01/09 following recommendation from a friend.
A traditional, hearty backstreet boozer is what greets the visitor. I received a warm welcome from Paul at the bar and soon got the lowdown on what Iíd been missing since the pub opened. Having just reopened after Christmas, the ale range was limited but quality was absolutely first class. Brains "Bitter", 3.7% was on top form and highly quaffable, and Titanic Full Steam Ahead was superb.
The pub is divided into three distinct drinking areas and opposite the central bar sits a goldfish tank. I noted a tv set which was off for the duration of may stay, whilst the music was quiet enough for relaxed conversation throughout,
On top of the ales, bottled Leffe beers are available whilst Paulaner and Bitburger are in draught. A failrly comprehensive wine list is offered.
Visitors seeking food will need to check with the pub for details. I certainly recommend this hostelry for a quality pint in genuinely traditional surroundings and a friendly atmosphere afforded by the staff. Do go, you will not be disappointed!

Visited on 16/06/09. Visited after reading good things about it on the internet - the plaudits proved justified. Located on a back street a short stroll from Old Street underground station, with a relatively spacious tidy interior and small garden to the side. Beer range was excellent for London - Thornbridge kipling, Dark Star Hophead and great ales from Brewsters, Red Squirrel and Purity - also London Pride. A fair few of the Sam Smithís range of fruit beers, lagers and wheat beers were also available. Bar staff were friendly. Definitely one to visit, particularly if combined with the nearby Wenlock Arms.

The Old Fountainís a nice boozer located in a pretty good part of town for pubs. The decorís a bit tired, but the quality of beer more than makes up for it. I visited during a mini festival, and was most impressed by the beers they had on offer (Kernel, Oakham, Magic Rock etc). The bottle selection was pretty solid. The foodís OK, and served at a pretty cheap price. Overall, Iíll definitely be back. Itís open on weekends now, too.
