The Slaughtered Lamb is a relatively recent remodelling of an old gallery space - so it's an ideal pub for an area with so many loft-converted flats. Equipped with a slouchy style similar to many pubs in the capital, a mixture of squishy sofas and well-worn wooden furniture. There's the slight air of this pub existing in ironic quotation marks: it's the sort of pub where the dart board is artily displayed in a cabinet, rather than actually available for play. As for its name, the pub doesn't go silent on entering like its namesake in 'American Werewolf in London', though the too-cool-for-school attitude of the bar staff was just as chilly. Having said all that, this one grew on us during our visit. For a start, the (rather rare) Sleeman IPA slipped down a treat and the varied music mix (the Stones to Pink Floyd via trance and dub) suggested a great MP3 player stuck on random. Just as impressive was the menu: we were fully expecting to be flicking through our gastronglish-english translation dictionaries, but the choices were simple and clear and mostly under a tenner. It's enormously popular so don't expect to wander in for a quiet pint and a fireside chat, you'll be hard pressed even to see the seat.

an accidental discovery wandering through back lanes on the way to the Dove Tail which turned out to be closed on a Saturday lunch time. Not particularly cheap but a good choice of well kept ales including some of the newer london brewers. Extensive list of bottled beers. On a Saturday it was a sea of serenity i suspect its a much more lively affair with the post work office crowds.

Great atmosphere and really lovely staff. This is a gem for the area.

On a side note, I accidentally left my bag here the other night, rung them the next day and they'd found it and kept it safe - very impressed!

Pub is great - Music venue great - Beer good - Chicken & Mushroom pie very good - Chips ok. Just such a shame about the poor bar staff service - Not very switched on & rather sullen.

The pub itself is nice, the beer ok, and the service hit and miss - sometimes good, sometimes atrocious.

Been to worse, been to better.
