Highbury Barn26 Highbury Park
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Originally a farm (this building?), becoming a tea garden in the 1850s and then a pub in 1861. Was Greenalls, S&N Retail, and finally a Spirit "City Pub" before being bought by a small pub company. Positioning itself as a community focused pub and clearly gets very busy on Arsenal match days when plastic drinking vessels may be used. The exterior has some fine tiling which extends in a most unusual way into an arch-like structure wrapped around the side of the pedestrian area in the side street where there are benches and people may smoke. Although it seems integral to the pub it is not owned by them. inside it is essentially one large room wrapped around an L-shaped bar with high tables and stools.
