About the Pub

A rare gem hidden in the local streets just off Kentish Town that was previously subject to a very high profile campaign in 2001 and 2002, by both local people, CAMRA and the London media, to prevent its closure. Twice a CAMRA North London Pub of the Year, most recently in 2012. There are mementos (including a new plaque) and news articles on display in the pub, along with Pineapple ephemera from all over the world. Also note the rare Bass mirrors. The single bar serves an extended ground floor area, with a large quiet, recently added conservatory to the rear. Upstairs is a separate and well appointed seating area which is available for hire. Monday is quiz night, and the pub participates in the London quiz league. Food is available 7 days a week from a Thai menu with good value lunchtime options. Now a Grade II listed building, its Victorian character is exceptional, and well worth close inspection (fine bar-back with etched and gilt mirrors). It is now a true, friendly local community pub and many of those previously involved in the "Save the Pineapple" campaign are part of the current customer base. Listed on CAMRA Historic Pubs Register of historic pub interiors. An accredited member of CAMRA's LocAle scheme, beers change regularly. Card-carrying CAMRA members receive a 20p a pint reduction on cask beer.

Historic Interest

Grade II listing:- C.1868. Builder unknown. Yellow stock brick. Stucco-faced ground floor, moulded stone window arches. Double valley roof not visible behind parapet. EXTERIOR: three-bay elevation, three storeys high, with doorway to centre flanked by windows with three-panel aprons; all openings are segmental-headed, with pineapple motifs to keystones. Upper windows are 2/2-pane sashes. Ground floor is faced with channelled rustication, with moulded imposts, radiating voussoirs, and a modillion cornice at first floor level, carried on acanthus-enriched brackets at each end. Curved corner to south-east with raised quoins of brick. Side elevation to south continues ground floor rustication, with subsidiary door (now blocked)and window; three windows to first floor (western pair blind), one to second floor. INTERIOR: altered, but retains good behind-bar screen with etched glass mirrors depicting vases of flowers with pineapples below; frieze contains mirrored lettering reading WHISKIES BRANDIES WINES; frieze is carried on four Corinthian pilasters with mirrored strips decorated with lotus leafs; rear counter is carried on consoles with pineapple decoration. Ceiling to main bar retains decorative plaster cornice. An unusually exuberant example of a mid-Victorian pub serving a newly-built development of suburban housing, which, in spite of internal alteration, retains a fine behind-bar screen.
