Local Pubs

The North London Branch looks after a large geographical area and, as a consequence, a large number of pubs. Want to find a Pub in North London? Not sure where it is? Then go to our on-line pubs database at Local online pub guide.

Or try out http://whatpub.com/

Quite a bit of this remains work-in-progress so we welcome news and pictures on pubs to get it more and more up to date but it should contain information on all pubs in the Branch area which we think sells cask beer. Send information to our Pubs Officer - see the contacts page.

You can also find historic information about WC1 here
