    A good Sunday pub. Roasts, outdoor seating, all the locals hang here, and live music 5-8pm on Sunday afternoons :-)

    This was one of Joe Strummer's favourite pubs and where he cut his teeth playing live with his first band, the 101ers. Read more

    The doorman was murdered here back in 2005ish. The roast beef is memorable.

    We call this the murder pub because someone was murdered here apparently. It's actually really lovely though

    A small stage at the back means you can enjoy a free gig as you while away those harsh winter nights. They also do great fish and chips and a winning hot chocolate for those post-Portobello pit-stops. Read more

    Very nice pub to chill out. Room in the back is great for big groups and they also have live music regularly. Sunday lunch/brunch menu is quite nice.

    Don't wait at the corner of the main bar, the staff ignore you. They actually refuse to move out of their zones! Motherfuckers are unmovable on this.

    Went on a Saturday night, during live music. Wouldn't recommend for food as it was average and the service (whilst great) took ages! But the atmosphere was great.

    Far too many reserved tables at the weekend, impossible to just pop in for a quick drink and get a seat!
