See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

The Northern Lane station is closed until Easter next year - Thameslink overland still ok Tufnell Park is probably the best alternative. Or walk from Kentish Town West or Gospel Oak.

A rare gem hidden in the local streets just off Kentish Town that was previously subject to a very high profile campaign in 2001 and 2002, by both local people, CAMRA and the London media, to prevent its closure.

Twice a CAMRA North London Pub of the Year, most recently in 2012. There are mementos (including a new plaque) and news articles on display in the pub, along with Pineapple ephemera from all over the world. Also note the rare Bass mirrors.

The single bar serves an extended ground floor area, with a large quiet, added conservatory to the rear. Upstairs is a separate and well appointed seating area which is available for hire. Monday is quiz night, and the pub participates in the London quiz league. Food is available 7 days a week from a Thai menu with good value lunchtime options (Mon to Fri).

Now a Grade II listed building, its Victorian character is exceptional, and well worth close inspection (fine bar-back with etched and gilt mirrors). It is now a true, friendly local community pub and many of those previously involved in the "Save the Pineapple" campaign are part of the current customer base. Listed on CAMRA Historic Pubs Register of historic pub interiors. An accredited member of CAMRA's LocAle scheme, beers change regularly. Card-carrying CAMRA members receive a 20p a pint reduction on cask beer.

Happy Hour 3pm to 7pm daily and all day Tuesday - 50p off the house beer, which we beleive is Pedigree.
