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

In May 2018 this pub reinstated cask beer, there are two handpumps which sometimes offer different beers but sometimes just the one, available at a fair price of £3.60 a pint. With its traditional games and large TV, the pub does somewhat evoke a style which has sadly gone out of fashion, when the Holloway road pubs would have been managed by Irish ex-pats with a customer base from the same locale. There are some lovely features, especially the angled, leaded and coloured windows. The upholstery is plush and red with ample seating and bar stools. Impressive entrances on the main road and side road, indicating the different bars that there once would have been. The Umbrella Brewery is in the same building at the back but not connected.
