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

At times during the latter half of 2022 cask beer has not been available here but the position of having one or two real ales seems to have steadied. Landlord is favourite. The operators also run The Englefield in N1. The food hours are not shown on their website and are based on info we received in 2021.

Renamed from the Perseverance in 2012 and with it then came the introduction of real ale. Why The Hunter S? per their website; "Hunter S Thompson knew good food and drink and that excess (here and there in our case…) makes for the good life. We love Hunter's idiosyncratic style and have decorated the pub with his signature oversized taxidermy, risqué artwork (ahem…) and a uniquely crafted copper ceiling. We think the great man would definitely approve and would stick around for at least a few drinks."
