A decent pub to the south of Stoke Newington.

[dhyandeva]? notes that it is frequented by musicians who make their own instruments from wood found in skips, performance poetry organisers, builders, bus drivers, and locals. On Ewan's visit on a Saturday evening, the place was packed and noisy, but in a pleasant way, though finding space to sit was difficult.

The wall poster for a Catalan liqueur reminds [dhyandeva]? of his time in Barcelona. There is also an open fire, and a bloody great nude statue stuck halfway up the wall.

There are several handpulls for ale, mostly serving Fuller's, as well as a few decent draught lagers.

There are seats out the front, and a small semi-covered and heated garden area, which I found out the other day is somebody else's front door!

Good jukebox, good pub quiz Monday nights. According to a sign seen outside in December 2008, the quiz is every Monday from 9pm, and the prizes are drinks vouchers and a cash jackpot.
