Charming gastro pub a little east from the bustling life of center London, though nicely located between Angel and Holborn. Vintage typed bar, high ceiling, long wooden bar, huge windows, small fire place in the back. Very nice ambiance.

Solid gastropub in Clerkenwell. We arrived at about 7pm and it was bustling. But then again, when is a pub ever not bustling in London? Probably never. They have a good beer selection and my pint of Leffe started me off to a good evening.

Finally after waiting 2 years from my last trip to London, I ate REAL fish and chips again that night. When I say REAL fish and chips, I mean the whole fish...more
