A delightful place off the beaten track in Crouch End. Stepping through the door is like a blast from the past- in a good way- with bunting, fairy lights, ramshackle chairs and tables straight from your memories of where you used to have your Brownies meetings as a kid. Great bar serving £2 half pints, I was here to see a play in the adjoining room but the place had such a nice atmosphere I wanted to stay for a few more. Young and old were hanging out on a Friday night and I wished I had known they served good food or I would have swapped my rushed Greggs for fish and chips.

Only sticking point is the DJ (who was playing some cool old tunes) when the play finished...the music was so loud we couldn’t hear each other talk so sadly had to go next door.


Great little quirky venue, which brings together the community through their range of events aimed at families, young people and young professionals, there's something for everyone, from live music and quizzes to craft fairs. This old Royal British Legion Hall takes shabby chic to the next level with its eclectic mix of old theatre chairs and sofas and rough and ready outdoor space. Some of it is a little too rough and ready and could perhaps do with a little more sprucing! However, with great food, drinks and entertainment, I'm not put off another visit.

Amazing food, amazing drinks, and amazing atmosphere from amazing staff. Without a doubt my favourite pub in Crouch End.

Slightly ramshackle and pleasingly dingy alternative drinking venue. Small but perfectly formed beer selection and great value as well.

All very pretentious!!!

But they do serve beer, so better than a free trade quinoa restaurant!!

Lovely little place, it's like being transported to another era..the swing nights, live bands and quirky decor. The food is great, the real ales are spot on and the staff go above and beyond to make sure you're having a good time.

Great place. Great staff and lovely people. What a gem of a place! Superb beer too!! 🍺🍺🍺


Ah, I bet you felt like you just stepped into your Nan's front room when you visited Earl Haig Hall, right? And what a lovely thing that is. Old chairs, original vintage fixtures on the walls and a stage that looks like a 1960s living room, this place really does has a lovely charm about it.

What's more, there are so many events going on and it's a wonderful respite from it's poncier neighbours in Crouch End Broadway. Don't get me wrong, I love a large glass counter, avocado on toast and large wooden sharing table, just as much of the rest of you. But every now again, it's great to just come somewhere that takes itself so much less seriously, kind of like having a nice chat with an elderly gentleman in a comfy woollen jumper.

Just come back from the Earl Haig Hall! The atmosphere in the main bar is warm & inviting. A real local haunt. Great plays & bands. An absolute gem if a place!
