Time Out Says

4 out of 5 stars

This is one of the best pubs in Highgate – one of the last remaining indies – looking after diners but never compromising on bar space to fit them in. Here you'll find loyal locals in for a browse of the impressive array of ales or huddling by the roaring fire in winter. The decor is mostly traditional, with a few tartan fabrics in pastel colours draped along the rear wall, presumably to let visitors know they’ve at least thought about modernising. The vibe is cosy, with a big beaten sofa at the front of the pub, although many choose the rear garden for a group get-together over pints. Reflecting the neighbourhood, the clientele is eclectic, from Highgate sixth-formers to older couples and young families. We even spotted local celeb Chris Moyles tucking into a sizeable Sunday roast on our visit. And, as with many gastro-leaning spots in the area, it's the food that packs them in here.
