The Old Fountain

Old Street tube station and its environs are grim, which makes The Old Fountain a real oasis. The pub itself is nothing really to look at - both inside (with the exception of the fish tank) and outside – but once you’ve clocked the beer on offer you’re unlikely to be too fussed. Cask beers change all the time, but the likes of Dark Star, Cottage and Crouch Vale are frequently available. There’s also a small selection of decent keg beer (Dark Star again appear regularly) plus a selection of bottles that includes a vast array of The Kernel’s output.
