One of the best pubs in North London. Friendly efficient staff, great selection of draught beers and cider with guest ales. Lovely beer garden and an old fashioned high ceilinged main room. I have eaten here before and the food was good quality solid nosh and not at the trumped up restaurant prices you now get a Youngs pubs. This time we just ordered a couple of portions of their excellent skin on chips to soak up the booze. Negatives? It's so good it is difficult to get a seat so book a table or arrive early. Everybody at the British Ecological Society salute this great London boozer.

We had a great evening. Has to be said it is very noisy and not a place for a quiet tête à tête. Great service good beer and straight up pub food.

Loved our time here last Sunday! Staff were really friendly, felt like a lovely local we’ll be coming to more often. It’s really great to see the effort you put into your beer options too, I’m not even a beer drinker but I’ve tried some out because you’ve got such a diverse range. Relaxing atmosphere, enough room for our friend and her baby. Also food was delicious and portions were great!

All is good, except the food that I found a bit bland every time. I love all the other things: the bers; the staff, the area, the ambiance, the garden, the clean toilets... and will come back for sure!

Food was much better until last year. We had a quite expensive sunday roast for the quality, and it's shame because it used to be great. My friend's dish was lentils and it was so salty that they could not eat it.
