My band did a gig at this pub, which was the only reason we were there, but as soon as we walked in, we felt a very pleasant friendly vibe from this venue.

The staff were friendly without being over-friendly, and hip without being cold. The pub itself is quirky without being overly-forced into a pose.

The food was decently-priced and really good. My sausage and mash was fantastic!

The gig venue downstairs is quite small, but we had an attentive, helpful, non-patronising soundman so it all went quite well.

I would definitely go back, and if you're in London and there's a gig or poetry reading or whathaveyou on, do go because it's a gem, worthy of your support.
