Three-storey pub of London brick, probably dating from 1894. Around the bare wood floor room is some old dado panelling, and the . counter front is of unusual narrow panels which are curved at the bottom and the top looks to be from the 1930s. The right section of bar back looks late Victorian; the left hand section has mirrored panels and looks more like inter-war work.

Three-storey pub of London brick having a ground floor frontage, thought to date from 1894, of four pilasters with green glazed brick(possibly by Mile End Brewery?). Claimed to date from 1822-4 and a pub since 1848. Two front doors indicate it was subdivided in the past but maybe a single room since the inter-war years? The name is likely to reflect the pub’s proximity to the Sadler’s Wells Theatre.

Around the bare wood floor room is some old dado panelling. The counter front is of unusual narrow panels which are curved at the bottom and the top looks to be from the 1930s. There are two sections of bar back – at the front (right hand side) it looks to be from around 1894 with a plain mirror back with a narrow mirrored panel each side having floral decoration. There is an etched and frosted panel above the door at the back of the servery. The left hand section of the bar back has some mirror panels and looks more like an inter-war one. A brick fireplace looks modern but has old tiling in front of it. Panelled ceiling and there is a skylight at the rear.

The ladies’ has three-quarters height cream inter-war tiling on the walls and the gents’ has cream tiling with black and white banding. Only open from 5 Monday to Friday; closed Sat, Sun & Bank Holidays.
