The closure of this traditional street-corner pub gave considerable cause for concern that its charms would be lost forever. However, the good news is that the pub has re-opened and the inter-war interior of this former Truman's pub remains on show as does its fine exterior. The essential component is the use of wooden panelling which incorporates mirrors, beer names and wonderful fire-places. There remain several rooms and a larger side-room for entertainments. There is also a walled garden for warmer and lighter evenings with summer hog roasts and DJs. Pizzas are served from the open kitchen. A traditional piano completes the scene. Nearest station is Haggerston. Buses can be found on Kingsland Rd. get off at Laburnam St., walk towards the Regent's Canal and turn left down Orsman Rd. As a recent visitor commented, "Really amazing & unspoilt interior; a true London boozer. Not many left like this alas."
