See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
One of the long established pubs found in this area, first built 1547 last rebuilt in 1921, the L-shaped bar has lots of wood paneling throughout. Another of the pubs where the ancient ceremony of 'swearing on the horns' which dates back to 1623 takes place twice yearly in March and August, details of the ceremony are shown above the impressive fire place.
The pub is run by the same family who operate The Jolly Butchers and Rose & Crown (both N16) and the Brownswood (N4). This has seen an improvement in the beer range - guests come from smaller independents. Real cider from a bag in a box but hidden within nice looking wooden barrels. Front terrace. Buses: 143 pass the door. 210 pass through and 214 & 271 terminate in Highgate Village nearby.
Note - payment by card only, cash not accepted.
