Great little place with a lot of character. Anita is the best! Come for one of their many many beers and stay for a show upstairs in the intimate theatre. Close to tube stops and in a nice location.more

Great pub located on Highbury corner.

There is a good theatre upstairs which is why the pub can get really busy, especialyl good for comedy.

This is also where the Mighty Boosch started their careers!

Noice noice!more
