AMAZING little pub. Great ambiance and decor. Very warm and cozy. The beer list is not huge, and unfortunately mostly cask ales, but a very decent one. I just thing that craft beers fit better into kegs and not casks. Besides that, I think its one of the best pubs I have ever been.

Great little bar in in North London, interior is old school pub, cleaned up and stopped down. Staff and especially the manager is is really friendly knowledgable guy. Beer selection is mostly cask so for someone who isnít into casks (cue for gasps from english ratebeerians) might leave a bit to be desired. But their selection nevertheless is VERY good and well kept. MUST VISIT PUB in london. Blows all the other "craft beer pubs" out of the water.

The_Osprey  (135) Richmond, England | August 31, 2014
Iíve now been here three times, so time for a rating. Ever changing selection of cask ales and cider. Busy pub and seating is sparse. This pushes people into the patio area, which is very smokey. Open fire in the winter which is always a good thing but it can be a bit intense in such a small venue. Friendly service and beer was in decent condition. A good one for a local.

Traditional pub, pretty simple and quite in the afternoon. Music when I was there was the blues and made it just that much better.Small bar, decent staff and a good well priced selection of beer and cider. Food is the basic English pub fare, but I didnít eat.

Il mio pub preferito. A dir poco fantastico. Ampia scelta di birra e di sidri, musica in vinile, ambiente tranquillo, con piccola corte interna

My favorite boozer in London bar none. Once you step through the door itís like youíve entered a slightly parallel universe somewhere around the period between the two wars. So the selection isnít going to beat the likes of Craft Beer Co but the atmosphere more than makes up for it. If you like cask beer you arenít going to care anyway. As most people have said it does get very packed so try to time your visit earlier in the day if you can. You wonít regret it.

One of Londonís best pubs, possibly no.1. Always a remarkable selection of real ales and ciders. The roast pork baps are to die for. A very mixed clientele locals and visitors of all ages. Good friendly bar staff who also have to change the vinyl records (of all styles) every 20 mins or so even when itís busy in the evenings. No keg (except for Camden Helles and Ink) or foreign beers Iím afraid. I love the sign at the bar saying all produce sold is from small independent producers - which sums this venue up.
