See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Freehold acquired from Conway Taverns by Martin Harley, owner of the Jolly Butchers, N16. Reopened on 19 April 2012 as a similar real ale, cider and craft beer pub with prices increasing with ABV.
There are 24 taps on at any time with seven handpumps serving real ales from microbreweries such as Tiny Rebel. An even more generous range of unfamiliar keg beers is also on offer as well as an extensive selection of bottled beers. There are also three ciders on hand pumps from Seacider and other great cider makers. The pub consists of a long single bar with large windows, bare brick back wall and high ceiling. There are plenty of tables and chairs and music played quietly in the background. There is a television used occasionally for sporting events.
Cash payment is no longer possible here; card and digital payments only are accepted.
Venue of Britain's first rock 'n' roll club, according to the Daily Herald archive: see http://www.scienceandsociety.co.uk/results.asp?image=10309258
