This is your classic North London pub. A great selection of beers, tasty gastropub food and a lively but friendly atmosphere. Would highly recommend to practically anybody.

Decent beef burger and chips - London Pride was a nice pint. Floor could have done with a bit of a sweep up but overall not a bad pub

Solid North London Sunday Lunch in this recently refurbished Fullers Pub - very popular with families with young children. Good set of ales and wines on offer as well as an absolute belting bloody Mary with turbo spice overdrive.
