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

Once a Whitbread Hogshead, this is an end-of-terrace pub rebuilt in 1882. Said to have been used by luminaries such as Oscar Wilde and Oliver Reed, this former market dive is now a locals’ pub attracting mainly office workers and residents from the nearby flats; regular groups and classes use the first-floor room and bar. Three TV screens are available for football and it does get busy of an evening. Dogs are welcome and children until 7pm. The food menu concentrates on Pieminster pies plus bars snacks, indeed the pub's website says, "In partnership with Pieminster." . Hanging flower baskets add charm to its exterior.
