Single-bar pub nestling in the foothills of Alexandra Palace, on the main Finsbury Park to Muswell Hill bus route. Its name comes from a horse race (it was originally built as a coachouse & stables) and the theme is reinforced throughout the pub. Like several real ale outlets in the area, it describes itself as a 'bar and dining rooms'. Furnishings are a mix of leather sofas and old style wooden chairs; there is a wooden floor throughout on two levels and candle lighting predominates. The pub also offers draught Leffe and Hoegaarden. Food is served, either in the pub or the upstairs restaurant, check website for latest times.
