Probably the best sunday roast in the Finchley/Totteridge areas. Everything was very tasty and freshly cooked and very generous portions. The only slight problem was slow service but the chef was new so faster service will probably come with time.

As so often, one of the two entry doors was out of use. So I had to use the doorway that was occupied by two elderly Ray Winstone wannabes with cigarettes, who seemed surprised that I was entering 'their ' pub. Past them through the...More

The best thing about this place was The Ultimate Burger of Awesomeness.....a wholehearted meal 🍔 sat in garden, needs a bit of a tidy up, service average, bar area dated.
