Under new ownership and now reopened and given a lick of paint and new wood floor amongst other details but with the layout unchanged. Four ales, though how 'regular' they'll be remains to be seen. Now owned by Nick Stephens (Locals Club Ltd) of the Gun in Well Street, Homerton. Four Legs run the food. Small, attractive, cottage style building, in a narrow side street opposite some 1920s post modernist flats. Inside the compact dimensions and wooden beams heighten the country pub atmosphere. The main part of the pub is a narrow bare-boarded area, with bottle glass-panelled windows to the street. To the rear of the bar is a smaller dining area; there is also a lower lounge area that leads to a pleasant patio courtyard.Pub can get crowded before kick-off when Arsenal play at home. Handy for concerts at the nearby Union Chapel. Nearest tube/overground - Highbury and Islington.
