26/07/23 - Pub closed for refurbishment.... reopened 6th September with three cask beers as listed. Pre refurb Keg beers including Orbit, Brew by Numbers etc.

Another part of the real ale renaissance taking place in this part of London. Although the emphasis is undeniably on food (hams hanging in the food preparation area are visible from the bar), this gastro pub has had up to five real ales on at any one time. It is also big enough for those who just want a drink to enjoy one without feeling uncomfortable. The whole impression is one of space, helped by a large bar area and high ceilings.

There is a large restaurant area to the rear of the pub, and an outdoor drinking/smoking space to the side. But please note the menu says a 'discretionary' 12.5% service charge will be added to all bills. During the summer of 2009 underwent a large programme to restore many of the original features.

Underground: Archway. Overground: Upper Holloway. Buses: 134, 390.
