Quality of Drinks

Real ales, with some OK keg options. Ale-focused but basic back bar.

Small 1 roomed pub. Wood panels with taxidermy and musical/theatre nik naks. Fireplace. Piano and guitar in the corner.

Characterful venue with some local life, coming into its own in the winter months with an intimate one room affair.

Live music, fireplace, snacks, limited outdoor seating.
Value For Money

Reasonably good for the area.
A distinctive and personalised venue which retains some characterful wood fittings. Small and intimate with a fireplace and live music, along with compact but decent assortment of ales. Only a short walk from Kings Cross but you’ll find local life and decent value here. This may be on account of it being nicely hidden away around a corner, therefore a place for those in the know rather than passing trade from tourists. Lovely unpretentious atmosphere not unlike a Belgian brown café.
