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.

I love the place. Great beer selection. Always rotating round. Good service and a great feeling in the bar. The only bad thing is that more people know about it now so itís getting busier. Still you would struggle to not enjoy a night out here. There is a little of everything for everyone and now their own beer too. The beers are what they concentrate on and they do it very well. You can eat the decent pub food to make your stay longer. They get the balance right and the beer board is clear and concise. As said before a real improver as the year has gone on.

A strong addition to the Islington beer scene. A great selection of rotating cask from some very interesting breweries. Good knowledgable staff and interesting food. Beer garden looks good if it ever stopped raining.

Really nice place. Was there shortly after opening. Nice tap selection, with lots of variety and styles. Nice that they offer 1/3s as well. Good food too. Definitely a place to check out if youíre around the Angel/Islington area.

Nice neat pub, selection wasnít 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 youíre 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 beer mecca - probably one of the best places in London. Itís taken me a long time to get round to visiting the Earl of Essex but, now Iíve experienced its delights, Iíll be back soon! Itís an old pub with a modern twist and a recently installed brewery (Earls) behind the bar. Thereís a nice patio area out at the back and every part of the pub is clean and well kept. The beer selection is superb, with 18 taps listed on a board (the pumps all look the same, with twiggy handles and no pump clips) and a good selection of bottles. The foodís a bit pricey but itís good quality modern fare and our club sandwiches were very tasty. (Last visited 28 October 2013).

Buisy but friendly, welcoming place. Go early, before it gets crowded. Service was friendly and quick. Broad, excellent selection, changing during the evening. Great place. Would love to come back.

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.
