North Nineteen

Don’t be deterred by the anonymous name and the drab housing blocks that surround North Nineteen: this is a gem of a makeover. The main bar adds a fireplace, a TV and a space for open-mic sessions to a counter offering the likes of Timothy Taylor Landlord, guest ales and beers from Skinner’s in Truro (Cornish Knocker golden ale, Betty Stogs bitter); a chalkboard and an array of beermats testify to the presence of regular guest ales.

Another bar, accessed via the dog-leg front terrace or through the gents’, best suits the convivial enjoyment of superior pub grub (Irish stew, chargrilled chicken sandwiches and so on). Whiskies, too, are a strong point: there are 26 in all, ‘plus six off-menu’, according to Tony, the landlord, who’ll be playing darts in the side games room on rare quiet moments.

The North Nineteen is a fabulous all round place to be, whether your looking for a quiet drink with your partner, a sunday roast which is superb along with the rest of the menu or night of live music and a knees up. This place is warm, welcoming and friendly.

Always a good selection on ales on tap. A huge collection of whiskies. And a chef who is a wizard in the kitchen.

Friendly local, food is fresh and reasonably priced.. Staff are fun and personable.


Hidden gem... great atmosphere, friendly staff and excellent food (try the ribs...)


Great pub with fun, friendly staff. Good selection of ales and the 'world famous' sunday roast deserves it's title - you get a huge meal for under a tenner, which is more than can be said for most other pubs in London. If you live in the area, it makes for a fantastic local


I agree with 'Clarkie'. The sunday roast here is excellent. I have sampled sunday roasts in many of the pubs in highgate (The Victoria, The Wrestlers etc) and even at the Landseer down the road, but the roast here is the best I have had. The gravy really is so delicious and you get so much for your money. Well worth it - please don't change! Other than that, the other food I have sampled has always been fantastic and they are very friendly here.


I was dragged here, expecting a mediocre, at best, Sunday roast. What I actually got was the best Sunday roast pork I have ever sampled in a pub, including some of the best 'gastro' pubs in London. The gravy alone was amazing and as for the Yorkshire puds (bigger than my head). There is nothing more annoying and satisfying than being proved entirely wrong about a place. Don't let the immediate surroundings of the area put you off. This place is a gem and at £10 per person, I cannot fault it.
