The pub is found in Islington, Central London, N1 2XD.

A delightful little back street pub in Compton Avenue, situated close to Highbury & Islington station and at the rear of the Union Chapel. Has a feel similar to a Belgravia mews pub. Drinking spaces on several levels around the bar and a rear garden. Busy on Arsenal match days. Was Greene King leased and now, since 2018, operated by Local Club Ltd.

We have visited this pub once, seen 5 different beers and tried 1 of them.
