Welcome to your local

Located just 5 minutes from Highbury & Islington Station and hidden away just off Holloway Road. We’re the perfect spot to unwind by the fire either en route home or to bring family and furry friends in for some delicious pub grub! Don’t forget about winter evenings where you can cosy up by the fireplace with a pint of Young's Original or a bottle of red and catch the latest sporting match live on our screens.

Craft Beers & Ales

Did you know we have three ale pumps and a fridge full of craft beer? Working with London breweries such as Brixton and Redemption; we are constantly changing our seasonal ales and bottle brews! Make sure you stop by to see what we have on... But one thing is for sure, we'll always have that pint of Young's Original awaiting you in the garden.

Events & Parties

Our bar area and dining room is available to host a variety of occasions; from christenings to birthdays, Christmas parties, milestone anniversaries to wakes we have flexible areas perfect for any event. Fancy something more private? The whole pub is available to hire so get in touch with a member of the team.

Real Pies

Our seasonal menu is constantly changing with fresh local produce to quench your appetite. But if there's one thing we're famous for; it's our pies! From our awesome Fisherman's to our Proper Shepherd sharer, you won't find better British pub food in Islington.

Live Sports
