This longstanding Highgate spot still draws the north London crowds, thanks mostly to a packed line-up of live music, comedy, quizzes and themed DJ nights. The whole place was recently given a new lick of paint and there's decent food too, courtesy of Caboose – a slick street-food operation doing the dude-food thing. Keep an eye out for interesting-looking art exhibitions, too.

Went here with some mates and the little man on the door (think the owner) was so rude and obnoxious I would recommend everyone to stay away! Small man syndrome and a little old terrier by his side makes for a fun night tear up but not with the hassle! Stay clear!!
Nice enough place, shame about the owner. If you're female and fancy working here, expect him to invite you upstairs the odd time, and it won't be to look at his etchings.
There's no where else in London like this- Quiz nights, board game nights, swing dance lessons, live DJs, pop up restaurants, random gigs by the Libertines and Chrissie Hynde... AND A IT'S OWN RADIO STATION... oh and it's in Narnia aka Highgate. Best place in the world.
Really great staff, really great owners, really great food, really great booze, really great music and really great vibe!!!! Just really great!!!!
Greatest pub in North London! Best music, vibe, ambience, friendly staff, dog friendly...need I say more?
Highly recommend this pub- reminds me of fond memories as I visited most Sundays to hear the then in house singer songwriter Bap Kennedy & band.
Staff were always busy yet friendly. Anyone with good taste in music would love a pop in & a pint.
An irrefutably legendary venue run by an irrefutably legendary landlord. Part of London's folk history.
Used to enjoy visiting during the quiter evening hours for a little night cap and some small talk with the locals, one night I was told by the owner to never go back again. No reason given, never caused any trouble, first time I've been barred from a public place of any kind. Very disappointing and I urge people to go elsewhere where their custom is actually appreciated.
Very pretentious place especially the staff and bouncers! just looking for money, no smile no discussion (and they had time) nothing else than money............! stupid people THE CUSTOMERS ARE YOUR SALARY !!!!!!!
Great little place! Kooky and interest. Gritty and kitch. In also love to how the backrooms out for a party!
