“A big disappointment. Do not go here. When you arrive the entrance is roped off to stop the non-existent queue; not very welcoming. Clip Board fascist, pretending to be the hostess, was rude, and we were made to feel like it was a privilege for us to be there. Food was average; deep fried, in stale oil, but not expensive.”

“If you have not been here you are missing out. This has to be the best pub in North London, the interior is 70’s medieval revival and a lot of the clientele have probably been there since then too, but that merely adds character to what is in the small minority these days; a proper pub. You’ll always receive a warm welcome and a great pint, which also seems to be a rarity these days. For the hungry among you the bar stocks all the old favourites; pepperami, pork scratchings etc, and for the more adventurous dinner there is always a choice of finger rolls. Music is not played, which adds the extra dimension of being able to talk to more than one person at a time. In the summer it boasts a bijou beer garden. It is affectionately known by the cognoscenti as “the office”.”
