Picture of Flask, Crouch End, London

Flask, Crouch End (Bar)
“I have been eating and drinking at the Flask for years, and have always found it to be a charming pub with great atmosphere and good food. Even after the menu was revised a couple of years ago (along with the prices), the food remained of a high standard therefore paying that little extra seemed reasonable. Whether they were having an 'off' day yesterday, or have simply become complacent due to popularity and the knowledge they will always fill seats, is hard to say. However the £9.90 pricetag that accompanied the Sunday roast seemed grossly above reasonable considering the meal that was placed in front of me. Fatty, undercooked shoulder of lamb, with a few beans and carrots, and roast potatoes that appeared to have been boiled and deep fried to give them a crunchy outter. I rarely make a complaint about food but when you are paying near enough £10 for Sunday lunch, it's fair to say expectations are a little higher than average. You could forgive them if it was a one off, but my friend's caeser salad came floating in a half inch of water with wilted iceberg, and another friend was told his chips (the deep fried variety - not baked) would be 30 minutes.. I only hope the Flask sit up and take note because this is dragging an otherwise delightful pub down.”
