About the Pub

A great favourite, especially to the local community, this popular, comfortable pub has been a welcome addition to the cask beer scene in vibrant Kentish Town and is an accredited member of CAMRA's LocAle scheme. The pub has a real "homely" feel to it being run by the friendly management and staff as a Geronimo branded gastro-pub.

The cask beer range is of good quality and includes LocAle breweries - usually Redemption. There is an open fire and very comfortable seating. The pub has won local and regional awards for both its front and back gardens. Sunday quizzes. CAMRA member discount.

Above the pub is the Giant Olive Theatre company, for details of productions, see their website http://www.giantolive.com/ Occasional comedy nights in upstairs theatre (on non-theatre dates).

Cider available on keg (and on Cask in summer). Disabled Access and W.C. Function room may be available in upstairs theatre on non-performance days.
