A nice pub, but avoid the Wednesday night pub quiz like the plague. It's a Family Fortunes-style quiz, except all the answres are from the mid-90s, which makes playing pretty much impossible and a total waste of time and money. The pub is decent enough and does good food. I'll not go back for the pub quiz though, which was, frankly, an embarrassment.

I forgot to add that Cobra is rarely seen on DRAUGHT outside of Curry houses, let's face it the bottles are everywhere.

One of the best pubs on Whetstone High Road but in fairness that says as much about the area's pubs in general that The Black Bull in particular.
Nice spacious pub with one of those modern decors that initially seems pleasant enough but grates a bit once settled in as the place lacks any type of character or soul.
Not cheap by any means but there was a reasonable range of beers available on my most recent visit (including the rarely spotted outside Curry Houses Cobra beer) and they were trying to make an effort with some sort of beer festival which is to be applauded. Quality of drinks was good and service was friendly and fairly quick for a Saturday evening.
Background music was very monotonous and bland and was set at a slightly too loud volume for you to be able to ignore it completely whilst trying to talk.
This is an Ember Inns esatblishment and as such will come into its own in the next few months when the fires are put on and a cosy atmosphere will hopefully be generated.
All in all, not the best place to spend the night but given the dearth of any competition worthy of the name nearby, you can do a lot worse especially on a cold winter's night.
