See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

In April 2017 this pub reopened after being closed for two and a half years by London-based multi-site operator Andy Bird, his fourth site in the capital. However, after being awarded CAMRA North London's Spring Pub of the Season Award, Andy surprisingly moved on and the lease has passed to the Disappearing Dining Club, a food and drink collective who host pop-ups across the capital. Their website seems to have a contradiction in food serving times ("Kitchen open evenings and weekends only") with a menu that implies service "Weds to Sat" only. On a visit of a Tues evening no food seemed on offer so this would support that conclusion. On that same visit there were 4 beers from Hammerton, Three Sods, Burning Sky and 360 Degrees. The new-look pub has quite a different layout than before with the bar moved to the right-hand side opening up what had been the back room where a lantern provides natural lighting. There's plenty of seating with open fires. That the pub re-opened was a testament to a long-running campaign by local residents and CAMRA alike to prevent its full conversion to residential including obtaining an ACV listing. Pub had closed due to work on upstairs conversion to flats and the risk was that it might remain closed. Nearest tube Tufnell Park, buses 4, 134, 390.
