About the Pub

A famous music pub which still keeps its end up. Music in the basement (usually Friday and Saturdays) and a juke box upstairs. A one-roomed pub on the ground floor with lovely arched windows, now of course totally see-through. The usual Islington style of mixed tables and chairs.

Historic Interest

Grade II listing:- c1880. Brick with dressings of stucco and stone, roof obscured by parapet. Four storeys over basement, three windows to Upper Street and five to Islington Park Street, which are the principal frontages. Ground floor has pilasters at the ends of the principal facades and round-arched arcades between consisting of Corinthian columns of grey and pink polished granite, the spandrels decorated with recessed panels of scrolling foliage; ornate bracketed stops at the ends of the fascia. The first floor to Islington Park Street has round-arched windows with stucco architraves, the outer ones pedimented, others with Corinthian capitals under a Lombard frieze; to Upper Street, an arcade of three round-arched windows with linked, free-standing pairs of columns with shared abaci. Second floor has flat-arched windows, simple architraves on outer windows in Islington Park Street, the others linked by springing band, under round arches, the tympana decorated with incised natural ornament, and a brick corbel table and cornice above; three windows of similar design in Upper Street under a similar corbel table and cornice. Fourth or attic storey has flat-arched windows to either end in Islington Park Street with three windows between with segmental arches and keystones set in a band of stucco which runs across the facade from the springing of the arches. Upper Street has three similar windows. The keystones form part of a modillion cornice of simple moulded design to central part of both facades. Arcaded parapet to both facades. The interior was very extensively refurbished c.1988 and no original features of interest survive.
