Wetherspoon then Ambishus (not for long) then Barracuda (who were latterly renamed Bramwell) and now Stonegate. As you enter from Upper Street, you go through a large, covered garden with heaters and occasional barbecues. This leads you into something that is really quite hard to describe, an arched ceiling with wallpaper mimicking brickwork while some of the walls have truly exposed brickwork. A mix of very modern decor, sofas, low tables and booths in a sort of gastro-style, although the menu is reasonably priced. There are also plasma screens for sport. Wi-fi. Disabled facilities. It accepts private bookings for the whole premises so may at times be effectively closed to passers-by.
