See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
With a theatre upstairs, this Tudor style building, formerly a Watney's pub was refurbished in 1993, being the oldest of Highgate inns dating from about 1380. It was run by Wetherspoons from then until its sale to Urban Pubs & Bars. Decor little changed. Food and drink more expensive. Where the handpumps used to be, it's all keg fonts, while the handpumps now occupy a previously empty corner of the bar. It is a large rambling pub at the top of Highgate Hill, two separate drinking areas with a very nice and secluded outside drinking area. Buses: 143 & 210, 214 & 271 terminate in Highgate Village nearby. The theatre - Upstairs at The Gatehouse, details can be found at www.upstairsatthegatehouse.com, separate phone 020 8340 3488.
