See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Large corner Victorian pub which was the Jolly Farmers for more than a century until it acquired a poor reputation. The person who took it over called it the Dog & Dumplings, he looked through a list of pub names and chose that because there was only one other in the country. In 2013 changed ownership and name from Northgate to De Beauvoir Arms and underwent a subtle refurbishment that has made the place into slightly more of a pub and slightly less of a restaurant. It's a single island bar pub opened out into one large bar with typical bare boards floor and open kitchen to the rear. On the edge of the De Beauvoir Estate an area of architectural interest. The original De Beauvoir Arms was the name of a pub in Stamford Street, later the Trolley Stop, and the name survives in the ironwork even though it is no longer a pub. Operated by Stanley Pubs Ltd who run two other North London pubs.
