|Victorian corner location pub in a quiet back street between Hoxton and Shoreditch. The rooms have been knocked through, creating a long and narrow space that looks and feels awkward. The decor is standard Victorian, which is attractive, but sits uncomfortably with the modern open space which feels more bar than pub. We visited lunchtime on an Easter weekend Saturday and the place was empty except for two single men sitting as far apart from each other as possible. The barmaid looked fed up. There was five standard cask ales, some lagers and a few bottles of cider. I had an Adnams Bitter, and we sat in the cosy corner bench which overlooks the backstreet crossroads outside. A nice spot. The man nearest to us went to the juke box and selected Sixties guitar bands - Cream, Led Zeppelin, The Who, etc. He then stod close to us and proceed to sing his way through the songs. While we were there three people came in, and soon left, clearly put off by the singer. The barmaid by this point had vanished completely - seemingly aware that there would be no further custom while the man was standing there singing. |
The pub is OK, just a little lifeless. Not one to go back to. The singing man made it both a little interesting, and a little awkward.

|I love this pub. Good selection of ale and lager. The staff are extremely friendly as are the clientele. My wife and I had our leaving party in the upstairs bar and the staff could not have been more helpful, friendly and supportive. |
It also has an excellent jukebox which is sadly a dying art these days.

|I think the only people that have reviewed this place have serious issues with the people of shoreditch. I have been coming to this pub on and off for the last 10years. And it always provides a good pint with freindly service. The jukebox is consistently good. And the occasional weirdos you encounter make this place much better. We want more of these establishments in Shoreditch rather than sterile bars that seem to be emerging trying to be part of the Shoreditch scene. Ignore the low rating above - and enjoy a couple of pints in here with the eclectic mix of peeps. |

|A mate suggested we headed over to this neck of the woods for a swift seven or eight in a poncey bar. The Bricklayers Arms got the short straw.|
Anyway, very disappointed. Didn't see even one pair of bricklayers arms all night. Lots and lots of pasty, feeble looking arms attached to limp wrists mind.
From 1800-1930 all was well. After that the place was infested with horn rimmed meeja hoors that you would never bore of lamping.
