This is a delightful pub and restaurant that has managed to pull off the difficult feat of being both a great place for a drink and a fabulous place to dine. This is enabled by excellent and friendly staff who all display a charming sense of humour. Four of us had dinner here last weekend and all were impressed with the quality of the food which is allied to an interesting and well priced wine list. Definitely the best pub in the area for dining and a relaxed drink.

Best pub in kentish town as far as im concerned, purely for the atmosphere and the large selections of ale. Another important point is that this particular pub has an authentic feel about it, with really friendly people. 5 stars from me


Very good service. Food freshly cooked so you have to wait a while so definitely need nibbles to keep you going if you are really hungry. Quite expensive for a pub but then I am from oop north! However, a lovely place to relax and enjoy good food and lovely surroundings


This is a fantastic social experience not to be missed!, and one of the jewels in the crown of North London. The staff here are friendly, relaxed and professional and the food always prepared and presented to perfection. They even allow you to enjoy linger and enjoy the relaxed ambiance without putting any pressure on you to feel it is time to move on. Not to be missed, just try it!


One of my companions wanted a hot whiskey. We were there for the evening and spent a considerable amount of cash on rounds at the bar. However, after our third round, when I approached the bar to order another, the barman serving me got frustrated at having to make a hot whiskey, one that he had already made three times before. The manager then quite obnoxiously and proudly told me that this was the last hot whiskey we were allowed, on the grounds that he didn't have enough staff on that evening to make the drink whilst serving others. I told him that that was very bad form for bar service in London. He didn't care and was quite dismissive. There are plenty of lovely gastropubs in North London (the nearby Bull & Last being just one) that deserve your custom. With service so selfishly poor and so rude to regular paying customers, there is no reason to visit this one. I suppose it's fine when the service is good to you, but what if you happen to ask for something that the barman, quite irrationally, considers wrong and then proceeds to start an argument over it?
