Proper back street boozer. No frills or yuppies. Matchday this is a real Tottenham institute - not for the faint hearted. Landlord a sound man too!

The outside gives you the impression you're about to walk into someone's front room and the deceptively large, busy interior strikes you straight away. Felt more like a social club than a pub as there are few bells and whistles in terms of furnishings, save for a jukebox, and it's keg only on draught. The crowd is quite friendly and welcoming (to fellow Spurs fans!) - it's very much the place you see the people you often meet if you go to Spurs away matches regularly. The last time I had been in there a chap approached me in the Paxton upper just before kick-off and said "You were in the Brewers before the game!" Typifies the friendly kind of place it is. Not a single replica shirt to be seen. Beer cheap and service very efficient.

Sometimes before the football I do like a real ale in a proper glass and in a slightly more subdued boozer, but there is something about this place that I really like. People say we're strapped for good options as Spurs fans but I think this is a solid choice.

I believe this is only open on match days and I slipped in incognito on advice of a Spurs supporting friend. Very good atmosphere and lively feel, ideal for the home crowd. The landlord and staff were friendly and served fast. A football day pub, somewhat utilitarian in decor and feel and no real ale but worth a visit and I would return. Obviously do not wear away colours or draw attention to yourself if you support the away team like I did, but I always like to check out the local boozers.

Cracking atmosphere after a game but failed to supply a real ale for the guys who aren't afraid to taste what they drink. Whitbread seemed to be normal supplier.

I respect these type of venues who deal with regulars and an intense influx of game goers on match days and seem to deal with the binge drinker culture admirably either that or ride there luck a little being a pub who cater to supporters of the same team. Pretty barmaids beams at you in this heavy drinkers den.

As a Spurs fan, I use this pub when I visit White Hart Lane for a match. The area has an abundance of pus, but none of them can hold a flame to this quaint little place. Initial reaction when you push open (what actually is) a house style front door is shock as there's generally a sea of bodies in front of you, but the service is incredibly quick considering the amount of people there. They even allow you glass pint pots on match days, which I thought was unheard of. As a real ale fan, the options are poor / non-existent, but saying that, the draft lagers are all good. The outdoor bar extension to the rear is magnificent too, but nowhere near as magnificent as the beautiful blonde lady who works behind the bar (sorry, I cannot resist). Reminds me of a young Diane Lane!

This is a great pub with good draft and although the decor has changed you still get the same good service and atmosphere in this pub. Cliff is a great manager with a good sense of humour and lovely Aiden is a top bar man - they remind me a bit of Basil and Manuel! Regulars are really friendly and there are some real characters in here especially Christy. Definitely worth a visit.

The best pub in Tottenham on match days! Cliff (the manager) takes great pride in looking after all the yids needs with beautiful barmaids,speedy service and an ol' fella for the ladies (Aiden).The compact and bijous interior has two large screens and a sound system/jukebox that larger establishments would be proud of.Recently completed in the summer, the management have had a fantastic rear open air bar and partially covered drinking/smoking area, complete with large screen, added, that has more than doubled the floor area of the pub.Fantastic atmosphere,Fantastic pub,Fantastic regulars.Highly recommended!

Landlord does a good job despite the polices best efforts to deny us loyal Tottenham fans a decent pub to booze in on a match day. Still no glasses....

if the bar mananger done some work and stop leaving it up to barmaids to run this little peep hole it might take some money . other then match day cant see how it survives + its shut early evenings . pub hours are from 11am to 11pm mate

The place to go on a matchday if you love a bit of Elvis.

Friendly staff, average London prices, good atmosphere, however always a bit too packed!!!

Lovely beer garden....not.

I think that RogerB is missing the point of the two brewers. Admittedly as a public house in standard terms it does not hit the mark. However, it is for me, very obvious that it is not trying to be a traditional pub, it is in fact a Tottenham Hotspur pub designed for matchday and the home fans. That is why it is "a shoebox", I am sure that it's takings on Matchday are sufficient enough to allow it to close for the rest of the week. My advice would be to only go to the Two Brewers if you are, like me, a Spurs fan (particularly on match day). As for the prices, it does seem that RogerB may have been overcharged, however, everywhere in London is extortionate these days!

2 decent plasma screens and good speedy service when busy are about the only plus points I can conjure up for this dreadful place. From the outside it still looks like a quaint old cottage style corner pub but the interior has been subjected to the sort of bland modernization that has destroyed too many traditional locals. It is now a bland, dazzling single room akin to drinking in a large shoe box. No Real Ales and prices are vastly inflated prices (John Smiths at 2.70 in Tottenham is almost criminal unless I was overcharged). There was certainly nothing here that left me with any desire to return in any great hurry.
