It appears to have been rebuilt in about 1900 and has attractive red-brick and polished, red granite and grey Larvikite detailing. The outside walls are notable – simple thin screens of timber and huge expanses of glass. The lower panels of the windows have fine etched swirling and polished glass and the small panes at the top are also decorated.

The servery sits right in the middle of the pub and was originally surrounded by a series of separate drinking compartments. Fortunately, enough survives to get a good sense of how things used to be. Each of the outside doors would have led to its own compartment and a couple of partitions survive.

A stylish Fuller’s pub, with some sumptuous and unusual details, located in a smart part of Islington.

The door to the former publican's office still exists in the glazed bar back although it is mainly hidden behind a wine rack and an under-counter 'fridge.

The counter is a fine piece with small panel details and a tapering base. It supports a long row of ten snob screens. There is another unusual two-bay curved screen on one end of the counter which originally held snob screens too. Finally, on the inner walls, don’t miss the pretty frieze with cream and green strapwork decoration.
