See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Reopened in Feb 2018 after a £600k investment by Stonegate which has brought the basement back into use as a jazz music venue - the Jam & Rye bar (open from 5pm and all day Sunday). Both craft and cask beer are advertised. It is a large single room pub with booths and larger tables at front street-side entrance, adjacent to Highbury and Islington station. Sports on TV screens dominates and can be loud, sometimes two different games are being shown. Outside drinking and smoking area at the back. The beer range will vary from established larger regional breweries.
