This place has class character and style. It is busy on most nights and with good reason. The staffing is good and efficient and the range of beer is great. The owner recently acquired "The Ban of Friendship" around February 2014 which has since seen a vast improvement.

Woodbine is a very nice pub with a very friendly welcoming atmosphere. Plus, you can get really good Thai food there. Our group had several curry and noodle dishes that were very tasty, including Penang curry, mussaman curry, and pad Thai. Service was also very friendly and efficient.

A great pub. Particularly impressed by the charming young man behind the bar (James?) who provided exemplary service. Basically, as others have described it, a great boozer!

Am sitting in the Woodbine as I write. Called in here to watch the football. Staff very friendly. Found a seat in front of the bar by the pillar, right in front of the high level screen to watch the match. Had not long eaten elsewhere so no plans to eat but that soon changed. As I had my charger... More

We go here regularly and never been let down. It’s a great little pub with a range and variety of people and characters making a good atmosphere. Its cozy and the candles make an atmospheric feel. Its good for couples drinks, dates, catching up with friends, and getting some good dinner for reasonable price. I believe the food is run... More

Nice cosy pub that is always worth a visit, lovely for a couples drink. Lots of candles on tables and nice booths to sit in.

We drink here regularly as its only 40 meters from our flat :-) Great atmosphere, relaxed easy going place for a few sharpeners after work or night out. Friendly chatty bar staff, good selection of real ale and other beers and wine. Great Thai food and Sunday lunch. My only criticisms would be that they took out a great Juke... More

As an Arsenal season ticket holder, I know the pubs on the Blackstock road fairly well and drink regularly at the Bank of Friendship and The Gunners before and after matches. Away from match days, however, The Woodbine is a lovely pub which is free from framed photos of Arsenal players and has a nice wooden decor. The pub is... More

Pleasant place to pop into for a quick drink after work or stay longer and have a Thai meal. Interesting decor and nice wooden tables - shame that the big comfy leather sofas have just been moved out - a little less cosy now. Timothy Taylor a popular drink with my partner although not always available. Small but reasonable selection... More
