Good range of beers, well kept. Nondescript interior. Ok penultimate stop for any crawl ending at The Wenlock Arms just up the road.

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.

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.

Busy pub in a side street off City Road. A solid cask range and beers are kept well. A few taps of common swill but by no means the worst Iíve seen. Staff are friendly and simple pub fare on offer. A good old fashioned boozer that fits in well with Wenlock Arms not far away.

Iíve been walking the road from Old Street station to Wenlock Arms several times over the years, not realising there was a very nice pub just off City Road halfway to the Wenlock. So Iím glad I decided to pop in on this wet November evening. Was greeted by seven handpumps of very well kept real ales and nice and friendly staff. The pub is fairly long, going through the building with entrances from both Baldwin Street and Peerless Street. Will visit again.

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.

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!
