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

Listed on CAMRA's London Regional inventory of pubs with interiors of special historic interest. Grade II listed and built in 1901 it was designed by the architects Wylson and Long. Originally an Inn, it was named by virtue of the haunches of Venison hung in the bar awaiting their sale by visiting Scots traders.

It closed for refurbishment in Oct 2015 - and reopened the week commencing 7th Dec and subsequently, in the CAMRA National Pub Design Awards 2016, it was the Winner in the Conservation category. CAMRA North London Summer 2016 Pub of the Season.

Rotating beers with 4 handpumps but just three were being used in a visit Oct 2023 with a predominance of beers from Wantsum, including a Mild and stronger dark beer. The house beer - a bitter - also is sourced from Wantsum. A "regular" keg offer on 6 lines and a "craft corner" with 6 keg lines (including Two Tribes, Hammerton and Signature Brew).

These can all be found in the original bar but at the end of 2016 they joined it to the more modern Stores Bar where you will find a large font dispensing Weihenstephaner Hefe Weissbier. This addition created a lot more space. It can also be sectioned off from the main bar for private hire.

There is a third area on the street corner which is far less pub-like and looks more like somewhere that can be hired for corporate bookings, meetings etc. For that it works well and can accommodate around 15 people.

Google says the opening hours are noon to midnight every day, the pub's website does not show the hours. We have used the hours on Google as it says they were confirmed.
