This is a trendy, old-fashioned pub on the corner with lovely rounded frontage around Great Eastern St and Curtain Road. We liked the decor and seeing the young hipsters frequenting it.

Great for free gigs. The upstairs room they have for gigs is small and fills up quickly but the sound is decent (for a small venue). It gets pretty warm and there isn’t a cloakroom but for free you can’t complain. Even if you have a ‘ticket’ for the free events it doesn’t guarantee you entry so I would advise you get there close to when doors open.

Came here on the hunt for some live music and had a great time. The bar downstairs was a bit rammed, but the upstairs bar was fine. And meant I didn't have to keep leaving the venue room to grab a drink - Always a plus!!

I'm not a regular. This was my first visit.

The pub is pretty dark and often hosts live music, the lights didn't come on until it was almost dark. A bottle of goose IPA will set you back a whopping £5. There is a huge space in the middle of the pub and tables line the outer wall.

Staff not too engaging, maybe I'm not hipster enough but its a beautiful old bar and I would visit again providing I could get a seat or it was a warm summers day. Toilets are downstairs.

Fine for a quick drink after work... dude
