About the Pub

Listed on CAMRA's London Regional inventory of pubs with interiors of special historic interest. Grade II listed. Built 1901. Closed for refurbishment Oct 2015 - reopened the week commencing 7th Dec. Rotating beers with an emphasis on artisan London beers (Hammerton/Three Sods etc.). Also, a "regular" keg offer on 6 lines and a "craft corner" with 6 key keg lines. CAMRA North London Summer 2016 Pub of the Season. In the CAMRA National Pub Design Awards 2016 it was the Winner in the Conservation category.

May 2022 update - now only 4 hand pumps. Other 4 removed to install a Tennents & Weihenstephaner hefe weissbier Keg fonts. 2 of 4 currently in use (Hammerton N1 and Three Sods). There was also a traditional cider but in Nov 2022 our surveyor reports - "no real cider. The fourth hand pump was not in use. I assume this was previously the cider pump as of the previous update."

Glazed wooden screens between piers with pilasters and cornice, and doors at either end and in the middle.

Flat-arched windows to upper floors; first-floor windows in groups of four, one group to Pentonville Road, two to Caledonian Road, with terracotta architraves, keystones and shallow, round-arched mouldings above; three remaining windows to Caledonian Road have keystones only. Sill-band to second-floor windows with scrolled terracotta ornament, the windows arranged as for the first floor but with pointed-arched mouldings with straight sides. Third floor entirely faced with terracotta; pairs of windows flanked by Corinthian pilasters rising from sill-band and corbels with grotesque heads; the windows have keystones with grotesque heads; modillion cornice.
