Beer Festival and Live Music at The Old Fountain












The Old Fountain - - is a family run Free house, just a short walk from Old Street underground station - take exit 8 and you will find Baldwin Street on the left-hand side as you walk up City Road.

It's been off the radar until fairly recently simply because it never used to open at weekends, but it's always been a popular pub and over the Easter weekend they're holding a festival with the promise of over 18 beers.

The live band is the Jolenes. The pub's split into two so there's a quieter area for chatting over a beer, but for fans of bluegrass here's a sample -

      No you wont be able to. But if u realise you are in the old street roundabout I suggest get off the bus and walk it from there. Its just a couple of minute walk.

    There is no service on the Northern Line between Edgware and Kennington via Bank this weekend.

    Although there is no mention of services to/from High Barnet on the Transport for London website (and Old Street station is apparently still open), there may well be no tubes running to Old Street.

    Fortunately, Old Street is on 11 bus routes so it should be fairly easy to get there from any direction. Here's a link to TfL's maps of bus routes -

    Been here before, nice pub. They do live music every weekend. There seems to be a all girl band on Saturday for the Beer festival. Should be nice

    Yes, they do food, although there was only a choice of five or six bar meals when I was last there. Otherwise there are plenty of places to eat around Old Street.
