Pub website: "Welcome to the Landseer Arms, a community pub serving unpretentious Mediterranean meals, European wine, local beer and real ale. Built in 1874, our pub has been through many names and guises over the years. We arrived in 2017, bringing with us exceptional Sunday roasts, £7 weekday lunches, a tri-weekly changing menu; all served in a beautiful Victorian building, complete with woodfire and open kitchen."
Victorian pub, so different from most of the places on Holloway Road. It has been through a few incarnations, from an Allied pub called the Stanley Arms (see below) which was closed down as uneconomic, a Wetherspoon called JJ Moons, then renamed in 2002 after the Victorian artist, whose works included the Trafalgar Square lions and a painting called "Monarch of the Glen". North London CAMRA Summer Pub of the Season 2018.
Spacious interior includes a conservatory-style space (sometimes used for dining) on the other side of the bar. Lots of pavement seating, with retractable awnings and heaters. Underwent a refurbishment in 2017 with the outside now a dark green paint job. Operated by Stanley Pubs who also run the Lady Mildmay and three other pubs.
