Pub on the edge of Finsbury Park, just along the road from Manor House Station. It seems to be aimed at the younger crowd, providing music or comedy every night of the week.
The building is split into three: the outside, the inside, and the back room. The outside might be generously called a beer garden, if one considers paving slabs with a view of the A105 to be a garden, but it does seat 30 or so people. The inside consists of a large L-shaped bar with tables in all edges, and a thoroughfare to the back room where music or comedy is performed. If you buy a "pizza deal", then the entertainment is often free.
When Steev visited on an early Monday evening (5pm) in August 2016, the outside was full but the inside was empty; it's likely though that the inside would have filled up later as a prelude to the music/comedy.
There was a wide drinks selection, but focused on lager; of the 12+ keg taps, eight were lagers (albeit trendy ones like Hop House 13 Lager) and one was Guinness. They had three ales on: Greene King IPA, another one from Greene King, and Black Sheep. The latter was not kept well.
According to their website as of August 2016, food is served 2pm-10:30pm Mon-Thu, and noon-10:30pm Fri-Sun. (This does somewhat contradict their listed opening hours, which state that the pub doesn't open until 4pm on Mon-Thu.) It primarily consists of pizza.
