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 1993 until its sale to Urban Pubs & Bars. Decor little changed, a lot of the internal space is for diners but there is still plenty of room for drinkers.

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 outside areas - the larger, secluded one at the back is exclusively for diners, that at the front of the pub is a drinking area where you get excellent views of the impressive Highgate School buildings opposite.

The theatre - Upstairs at The Gatehouse, details can be found at, separate phone 020 8340 3488.
