From the people who brought you Filthy McNasty's, so no surprise on our first visit to see a selection of the CDs on the jukebox had been picked by Shane McGowan (often to be spotted sitting at the bar) and Spider Stacey. And what a juke box it is: if you've waited for a pub where you can select Captain Beefheart or Pere Ubu instead of picking your way through Now! 5,000,000 you should pay it a visit. There's a fairly limited (by modern standards) range of drinks on offer, and the food on offer doesn't stretch past nuts and crisps (not always a sticking point but if you have the word 'kitchen' etched on your front window you're leading hungry passers by rather far up the garden path). The regular quiz nights (Tuesday - music, Wednesday - film) will test the grey matter, and just like Filthy's, expect literary nights and 'secret' gigs every so often. It's not far off a cool record shop with a bar in the corner - not a bad thing in our book. Oh, and just so you know, it's only open in the evenings during the week, and from 2pm on weekends.

Avoid at all cost! Worst place in London! Owner is a disgrace (small Irish guy) and bouncers are like little Rottweilers but with the bark and no bite. Disgusting attitude and behaviour!

Owner is seriously deluded and has small man syndrome! Not a good place to go. Bouncer is like an old Rottweiler without the bite to back up the bark. Overall the worst place in London! It's a shame as local but will not be going back there ever again!

As a pub, it barely covers the basics, but appears to have an inflated opinion of itself. What's the point of an amazing jukebox if one's hard-pressed to find something worth drinking behind the bar?
