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

Single bar pub in the shadow of large council blocks and London university student accommodation. There is a high decorative ceiling supported by three columns, an island bar and magnificent windows to the streets with original etched glass. The outside is decorated by some fine green and blue tiles. Bare wooden (and in parts concrete) floors, white tables and the ubiquitous former church chairs which seem to populate a lot of gastro pubs with a menu reflecting its new, aspiring status as a "public house and restaurant on Leigh and Sandwich". The new owners gave it a cleaner, lighter, more comfortable feel, including an old-style bacon slicer used to cut charcuterie from hams hanging behind the bar. Large number of outside tables. One suspects most of the old student crowd may have moved on. There are numerous food guide stickers in the window and service is 12.00 - 15.00 and 18.00 - 22.15 Mon - Sat and 12.00 - 22.00 Sun which also features a full roast. Both tapas and a more substantial menu are available. Tube - King’s Cross/St Pancras.
