A great little theatre style pub in Islington London.The small theatre is at the back of the pub which show fringe style shows.

What a gem of a place in the middle of Upper Street, Islington. A really nice pub with a theatre at the back. The theatre is independent to the Young's pub we were told by the Bookings Manager who introduced the theatre and the show, Hello Norma Jeane, an interesting concept and story regarding the equally interesting life of Marilyn Monroe and a grandmother who claims to be her, written by...more
