See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Reopened as Brave Sir Robin 5th/6th December 2017 from the team that run the Rose & Crown in Kentish Town. The name of pub comes from the name of a knight in film, Monty Python and the Holy Grail. It is a small corner pub made cosy by soft globe lighting and candles with a mix of seating, from booths to sofas, which offer a welcome to diners and drinkers alike.
Campaign for Real Ale North London Branch’s Cider Pub of the Year 2020. The Brave Sir Robin has gone from strength to strength since it was taken on by Brothers Theo and Ben Caudell and Chris Hurd, who co-founded Carouse, their small pub company. The trio have a track record of running great community pubs; they also have the Rose & Crown in Kentish Town. However, recent reports about their cask ale have not been that positive.
The building that hosts the Brave Sir Robin has gone through various usages. At one time, it was a Post Office and, in the 1930’s, a grocery shop. It finally became a pub in 1983 and was an early conversion by JD Wetherspoon when it was known as Marler’s Bar. Since then it had numerous names including Hopsmiths, when it was run by the now closed London brewery, Late Knights. But that wasn’t the only closed brewery to own the pub; Tolly Cobbold of Ipswich purchased it from JD Wetherspoon when they departed in the late 1980’s.
