Great building, friendly service, but...? Sunday roasts (beef, pork) were average, fast prepared, with burned Yorkshire puddings. The roast chicken on the other hand was amazing, juicy, well cooked. Good ingredients, average cooking. Great back yard with small cabins, ideal for summer or white nights....More

Great range of beers, snacks and food. This beautiful Victorian pub has a fantastic atmosphere. Was once dead but now one of the most lively pubs in Hornsey Village since it was taken over by new owners.

I came here to meet a friend for a comedy evening. Nicely and tastefully done works. Will have to make a point of coming back and seeing what the disco is like as none of the reviews say much about it. Was a little surprised...More

We visited on a Sunday, nice atmosphere child friendly. The food was very good, the sharer chicken roast is probably ok for 3-4 people! Kids menu was very good quality with home made fish fingers, my daughter who is generally fussy finished the whole lot....More

Sensational keg selection and 3 cask too. Spacious, family and dog friendly. Cheerful young barmen. One pint got forgotten but otherwise service was good. Great portion size on the roast but it lacked seasoning and the gravy tasted like cheap packet stuff. Chicken was well...More

Went with a friend for a catch up. Great selection of beers and drinks. Interesting food menu. Good size to share 4 starters between 2. Good space indoor and out. Lots of relaxed people kicking off a chilled vibe. Started getting busier at 10pm.

By far the best pub in crouch end. The staff are great and the beer choice is lovely. The only thing they could do better is offer vegan food. The tofu skewers were flavourless, burnt and a temporary addition to the menu.

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.
