About the Pub

Small boozer with a fire and pew style seating, a long thin bar which leads to a small garden at the rear. The ale selection is constantly changing and comes from small independent breweries across the UK, their website lists those who have appeared.

Following a short closure and refurbishment in Autumn 2018, the number of cask beers on handpump has gone down to 8 from 10, they are usually helpfully ordered palest on the left, darkest on the right. And the number of real ciders, from producers such as Burrow Hill and Turners, has dropped from 8 to 6. At the same time 8 lines have been fitted for keg beers.

The pub won the Greater London Cider Pub of the Year Award 2010 after earlier winning the Branch Award. After being the Branch Pub of the Year in 2011 it then went on to be crowned the 2011 London Regional Pub of the Year. For 2017 and again in 2019 it is the North London Cider Pub of the Year.

On the food front no gastro, just good bar snacks, pork pies, sausage rolls, scotch eggs, roast pork in baps plus veggie options. The music is played on vinyl which is great, there is also live piano music on Sundays and Tuesdays and Wednesdays. No tea, no coffee but a bloody mary kit is behind the bar. Pub stays open to midnight most days. Pub quiz Monday. Nearest transport options - Kentish Town + bus or Gospel Oak.
