A fairly basic pub next to Holloway Road Station, run by Faucet Inns.
There's not much that especially elevates this boozer aside from its convenient location, but the space is perfectly pleasant in a modern style, with couches in the larger, if darker, back room, and high tables along the window at the front. There are also a few smaller tables with square backless leatherette stools for seating photo of interior.
Visiting on a Saturday afternoon in July -- outside the football season and during summer holidays for the students -- the place was pretty much empty, and presumably takes most of its custom from these two close neighbours (the Emirates Stadium and London Metropolitan University).
The bar offers no handpulls for ale, with the usual cooking lagers alongside one or two premium options (Grolsch and San Miguel). There's a food menu prominently featuring pizzas, as well.
