Cold premises, miserable staff, slow service and very poor food.The complementary bread and oil appeared on the bill as Brooklyn and cost me £4.90.

When Albert Uderzo drew a timeless English pub for a scene in Asterix in Britain, it looked a lot like this traditional spot on Highgate Hill: wooden beams, fireplaces, bottle-glass windows and a labyrinth of snug rooms.
Should you find it, the little bar in one corner serves a gently unusual range of beers, which has improved since Fuller’s took over the pub in 2009: you might find the likes of Butcombe Bitter, Hydes Original, Adnams and Fuller’s own Honey Dew on tap, with such Belgian brews as Vedett and Duvel available by the bottle.
Single malts are another feature, though you might prefer something chilled from the wine list if you’re taking to the side terrace in summer.

Great premises, very presentable pub. The staff (management?) who served me were just awful. Very, very poor service, especially unforgivable at such a quiet time of day. Which coffees do you do? "Unfortunately, we do all of them". Well, unfortunately, you couldn't even manage the one I asked for, and fortunately, there are several better pubs within short walking distance that don't treat customers like dirt.
Food took forever, worst burger and chips I ever had and staff are so miserable. Its such a shame as its a great location .
Poor food, poor service and poor response when reporting issues of cold and frankly badly delivered lunch. Wont be going back and would not reccomend, at all.
Great pub serving a nice selection of real ales which change every couple of weeks. Not eaten but always seems to be a lot of diners happily cleaning their plates. I'm here for the beer, and few pubs keep them as well as The Flask
prior to my visit last night I was surprised at having read bad reviews about the staff at the flask as they've always been charming. the bad attitude was in evidence in abundance last night however, thoroughly unpleasant waitress also the main course took forever to arrive and was lukewarm when it did arrive
had a lovely crispy pork side with cabbage and mash, with a complimentary sour bread and vinegar/oil, the female staff are pleasant some of the barmen can seem a bit autistic?
Lovely PUb, great beer garden and atmosphere but the food is nothing to rave about and all the staff all have major attitude problems.
