I am sure I rated this years ago... anyway selection has got even better lately. Usually 7 or 8 real ales and about a dozen craft kegs. Usually a good selection of styles and strengths. Only downside is food has got posh and £££ so cant have a roast beef and horseradish or cheese and onion sandwich which were quality and good value. Can at times be a victim of its own success with overcrowding especially weekday evenings.
Visited the 29th September 2016 - Near to Old street and in front of Draft House. When you arrive this place looks like an old fashion pub. Inside, nice deco and good atmosphere with wooden floor. Clear and clean. Beer selection is nice with some cask and good range selection on tap from Peroni to Kernel. You can enjoy your drink outside but you won’t find a table or on the roof terrace (very busy). Staff is ok. Cuisine looks nice.
Visited on 22nd June 2016. Nice old pub just off Old St. It has two bars and the split across the middle of the pub is a step. It’s got plenty of wood and is quite dark. Is popular for food and is known for the salt beef sandwiches.
A good range of beer with a good mix of cask and keg, including a couple from the USA. Beer is well kept and is a good range, maybe not super daring but good enough.
I noticed a palate of malt outside and asked the staff. They are starting to brew so expect their own beers on some time soon.
Nice pub, worth a look in, especially as a few good places nearby.
Pretty nice little local pub located in Old street, yo don’t really find places like this this deep int he city anymore. Typical local pub atmosphere with typical pub furnishing and etc, but the beer selection here is pretty damn good. They had some nice casks by thornbridge when I went in and some kegs by sirenw siren, beer is dispensed well and very fresh. Bottle selection was very limited but the draft list made up for it. Overall I really enjoyed my visit here and was very relaxed with very pleasant staff.
Met Theydon here for a drink. Very good selection of London micro’s and just general UK craft - Kernel, Brodie’s, Camden, Magic Rock .etc. incuding a small but decent bottled selection - Partizan, To Ol, Sierra Nevada, Founders .etc.. Service is efficient and friendly. Plenty of space while I was here. Can get a little crowded at the bar though. Good place and fairly central

Good selection of cask and keg, some bottles. Nice outdoor terrace. Shows football games. Food is decent.
