Freehold acquired from Conway Taverns by Martin Harley, owner of the Jolly Butchers, N16 and family owned London Village Inns. Reopened on 19 April 2012 as a similar real ale, cider and craft beer pub with prices increasing with ABV. Three real ales from microbreweries are usually served, together with a generous range of unfamiliar keg beers, an extensive selection of bottled beers and three ciders on handpumps from Seacider and others. 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
