Early Saturday evening - busy, loud piped music. Was particularly impressed by the "Oasis" clock - at least 2.5 metre diameter.

Evening. Friendly bar staff and an eye catchingly large illuminated wall clock said to have been used in Oasis concerts.

Not too busy mid to late-evening on a Thursday. None of the beers quite hit the spot tonight.

Redemption - Hopspur4.50GoodTasty beer, but in rather flat condition.
Redemption - Trinity3.00GoodGreat, hoppy, low-strength beer. Did not quite have its usual sparkle.

The pub is found in Islington, Central London, N1 9PZ.

This pub in Penton Street is the former Salmon & Compasses, which latterly became Hundred Crows Rising (more restaurant than pub) and which has been acquired by the Laine Pub Co in 2013 and once again re-named. The exterior retains some fine tiling from the pub’s days as a Courage house. Stripped back to bare brick inside, and with a open kitchen occupying some of the space behind the bar counter. A massive illuminated clock on the back wall. 4 handpumps.

We have visited this pub 3 times, seen 9 different beers and tried 5 of them.
