Whilst I hadn't planned to visit this pub, it was on my way to Finsbury Park tube station and I had a bit of spare time. So I thought I'd give it a go. The pub is situated at a busy road junction and it is fairly spacious inside with a large open-plan area either side of the bar. As an Antic pub, it has the usual mix of oddities scattered around. Toilets can be found either side of the bar and apparently can be differentiated by the colour of their tiles! Ales were Morland Old Golden Hen, Redemption Pale Ale, Purity Ubu & Greene King IPA. Sadly they don't stock a real cider. But they did have Aspalls on keg. Better than I had expected.

Improved and trendier since Antic took it over, but expensive at £4 a pint. Despite the price my pint was flat and cloudy, which didn't impress me, but when I took it back it was changed immediately and the offending beer was taken off, which is what should happen everywhere but rarely does.

Really good Sunday roasts at very reasonable prices, open and airy. Good selection of ales. They have a screens area for football, but are large enough that you can get away from the sport if you aren't in the mood. There are a few bad reviews here, but it sounds like the place has changed for the better.

My partner & I have used this pub for a number of years and always enjoyed the atmosphere and friendly bar staff.. my my how a place changes in such a short spaveof time. At this point I will say the beer was fairly well kept and a decemt selection of ales but that's where the positives end for this review.

After waiting nearly 20 mins to get served on a weds evening a particularly arrogamt looking bar person strolled in behind the bar to help the lone bar staff member serving the now 3 or 4 deep wall of customers. I enquired to the newly arrived bar person if they were short staffed to which they replied "she's the manager ask her!" Charming! The bar person then went on to ask me if I was joking for questioning the level of customer service I received which was utterly disgusting. I left the bar shaking and there and then decided that will be the last time I set foot in this so called pub.

Avoid this place if you want a friendly welcome you're not going to get. And at £4+ a pint thats the least you should expect.

I'm scoring them 2/10 only for the beer.. customer service was without doubt the worst I've ever experienced.

Update: they have now gone stingy with the roasts. Two potatoes only and much reduced quantities of veg, replaced by a surfeit of gravy. Shame, because they had it about right before.
