Although being just that bit too far from both Old Street and Essex Road, the Rosemary Branch has built up a decent reputation over the years and regularly fills up, whether with a mix of pubgoers or culture vultures catching a show in the upstairs theatre. With several books lining the shelves, and a few board games to while away the drinking hours, this is a pub that has got most things right. Drinks-wise it's all good: Litovel (red and black) and up to five ales with three guests all kept well and often served with knowledge and enthusiasm by the friendly bar staff. We'd also put in a good word for their Sunday roasts and the general ambience of this one: we're still trying to work out if the pianist who soundtracked a recent visit has a regular spot, or just turned fancied an impromptu tinkle. Either way, this one's worth the journey to give a look to.
