    Great selection of burgers with a good deal on Wednesdays - £9 for burger, fries, onion rings and a pint of beer (usual price of burger alone - £10-13.50)

    Great quiz at 8 on a Tuesday night. Worth getting there early in order to get a decent table! Food offer of 2 meals and a drink for £20 also great!

    Great pub, but unfortunately changed their menu. No longer do burger Wednesdays - beer and a burger for £9. Or buy one get one free on Thursdays 😞

    Lovely ornate little pub. Very dark but good bloody marys & nice food. Gets busy on weekends so consider booking a table!

    Great little pub hidden away in angel. Great beers (brooklyn, sierra nervada, magnets draught) could see it being a summer haunt!

    Excellent food, kept interesting by the changing daily specials. Home battered fish and chips are worth a special journey. Spolit for choice with draught beers and wines.

    The food we got was good... even though they'd run out of everything we actually wanted. Very good selection of beers.

    Nice decoration, but it gets INCREDIBLY BUSY up to the point that you can't hear yourself think (and forget about going to the bathroom...)

    Most adorable pub in the world. Grab a pint and go walk the canal and see art and houseboats.

    Southern fried chicken could give the colonel a run for his money. Also, the addlestones is delicious

    Lovely pub with killer selection of beer/ale & good, reasonable food. Have come here regularly for 5 years. Unfortunately, staff changed lately for the worse - slow service & lots of attitude. Shame.

    Nice cosy pub however would not recommend for a roast. They had ran out of veg option and all sides and it was a very bland, roast!

    Not impressed by the staff! Slow service on a weekday, long waits for food and lack of air conditioning. Pub looks beautiful, but whole other experience when you enter!
