    After changing ownership in May 2013, this pub has turned it's shabby back garden and car park into a very pleasant outdoor area, smartened up its interior, and now serves a range of mostly locally brewed top quality cask ale (with a keg of the fantastic Pale Fire from the Pressure Drop brewery too) alongside some good bottled craft beer as well as some of the usual lagers, Guinness, wines and spirits. The food is pretty good too. They have a way to go to get as good as the Clapton Hart five minutes walk down the road. But they're still doing a great job. And unlike the Clapton Hart they are open from lunch time on week days (which is good for those of us who work from home or don't work regular 9-5 hours).

    First to Review

    There's a nice ambiance to this place, particularly if the garden out back is open.
    There were five golden beers on offer which suited me. Big fan of Redemption Brewery so enjoyed a Rock the Kazbek. Whoever is in charge of the beer knows a thing or two I reckon.
    Not so much the staff (i heard one recommend Dark Star Hophead as a dark beeras it had the word dark in it i guess) although i approve very much of how many people they said serving. It was a lively evening but they were staffed sufficiently to assure rapid beverage replenishment!
    Chilled music contributed to the vibe too!

    Massive improvement on a dodgy dive. Bit surprised when asked how I wanted my burger cooked, i thought that was now against the law.
    Having said that it was very nice.
    I thought the barman was a bit scary to be honest.
