    The best pub in London, old charm, good mix of patrons and proper hand pulled ales and cider. And the best roast pork rolls ever.

    Small pub, with an impressive range. Be warned though, the my don't have any fuzzy cider, if that's what you prefer, and the barmaid can't tell the difference between cider and Perry.

    With a constantly changing selection of roughly ten beers, each one gone once the firkin runs dry, every visit is a singular, unassuming education in quality drinking.

    Great selection of beers and a nice local crowd. However, gets very crowded in the evenings so don't expect to have anywhere to sit unless you're willing to wait. There's room outside though!

    For those that stumble across it, they’ll quickly realise that this place likes to keep things simple, for outside an old painted sign that reads ‘Ale, Cider, Meat’… pretty straight forward, no?
