Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
November 2019: Many of the best pubs in London remain the oldies. But new at number 25 is The High Cross, a micropub inside a former public toilet in Tottenham that’s doing a sterling trade in pies and pints. And joining our countdown is Ninth Life at number 50, a pub from the Laine Pub Company that brings a little bit of circus culture to Catford thanks to its roving performers and late opening hours. Roll up, and then roll out.
