It's all a load of Cannonballs in here! This is the virtual Arsenal pub where you can chat about anything except football. Be warned though, like any pub, the content may not always be suitable for everyone.

You'd have to be a tight wad to go to the Twelve Pins in the first place - it's full of people who won't pay to go to the game.

Don't fall asleep, you've got punters to serve - oh no, sorry. Forgot, it's not a matchday, is it?

You're a grown adult, and you're moaning about a pub's entrance policy and staff on the internet.

Please, get a life.

IMO the best pubs round Arsenal are the Wig and Gown, the Pins, the Blackstock and the Auld Triangle.

The beer in the Triangle isn't great quality though.

The Arsenal Tavern is okay as well,but I usually have a few in The Blackstock,followed by a few more in The Auld Triangle,(or more precisely outside The Auld Triangle near the Burger Vans).I have also had one or two in The Gaslight,the boozer opposite Finsbury Park tube.

Sorry Mum.

Just to play devil's advocate here - if I'm childish and need to get a life for moaning about the service provided by a pub and it's entry policy, then by the same logic surely a forum that moans about the prices and value for money of a football club that has supposedly ruined their lives by not winning the league every season is equally childish and sad?

Just something for you to mull over.

Well you're entitled to your opinion Rebel, but dare I suggest it's influenced by the fact the gaff is run by your fellow country men and women

You can say that again!

We stopped using The Triangle -Nee Plimsoll a few seasons back. It just got too bad in there. The beer is utter shite. Flat shit that is normally warmer than it should be.

Some of the guys I go with had been drinking in that pub almost 40 years but it got too much for them and they are real creatures of habit.

We always used to get treated well and get given glasses but more and more they get bringing over new bar staff from Ireland who didn't know us and kept trying to give us plastic. Only Carol managed to help us there.

When the Stella hit £4 a pint for the flat shit being served up we felt it was time to move on. Even Fosters/Carlsberg was £3.50.

The old bill outside making everyone stand inside a pig pen was one of the last straws. I know that's not the pubs fault but it just added to the frustration.

We now use the Eaglet. The beer is so much better, its £2.60 a pint. The bar staff are cool. Only down side is the toilets are a fucking disgrace and the Away Boys come along every couple of weeks and make a right fucking racket :barscarf:
