Oct 2023 - The Northern Lane station at Kentish Town is closed until Easter next year - Thameslink overland still ok Tufnell Park is probably the best alternative on the tube but far easier to walk from Kentish Town West.

Four times winner of the CAMRA North London Branch Pub of the Year (2013, 2015, 2018 and 2023). After four years being closed, this community pub was reopened by the people that own the Pineapple. It has an L-shaped bar with comfortable stools, tables and seating. Eight Cask Real Ales and a selection of kegs and bottled ales regularly available. Two or more ciders on cask/handpump such as Seasider or Turner's Dry Cider. Runner-up in the 2022 North London Cider Pub of the Year competition.

As a member of CAMRA's LocAle scheme expect to see a good range from London's LocAle breweries. Traditional home-made food with speciality pies. Sunday roasts booking advised. Heated/covered beer garden is well designed and is a nice feature. Popular Wednesday quiz and live sessions of traditional music on Thursday evenings. Tap takeovers every 2 months and pop-up events.

Listed as an Asset of Community Value in 2016 renewed in 2021. The house beer was brewed for them by (we think) Brakspear's, called Nelson’s Whiskers (after the resident cat). However as at March 2023 it seems Redemption Trinity has taken on that role. Disabled Access (Not W.C.), Family friendly (until 8pm).
