Good range of beers and a pool table (if you can get on it!), but the decor is minimal and won’t be to everyone’s taste. The crowd is a mixture of ‘interesting’ locals and annoying young professionals – not the type of people I’d want to hang about with out of choice. Music isn’t bad, but the pub should do away with older DJs and bring in fresh ones. However, the biggest disappointment are the staff who are rude and obnoxious to the point where I wonder how they are still in business (the landlady can be very ill-mannered and has a reputation for barking at people). When a pub has to rely on a three legged cat called Legz as their gimmick it says it all. If you are desperate for a pint this pub will do the job but there are much nicer in the area – just walk up the road to Highgate Hill for pubs with friendlier staff and a more decent clientele!

A bit too much of a student vibe. Boardgames and sweets on sale behind the bar. Also the beer selection is a bit pretentious with various over-priced "craft beers" and Continental imports. On the plus side they have a fantastic pub cat.

Slightly disappointing pub on the Archway Road. No ales were on when I arrived yesterday evening. Although they had put Hammerton N7 and East London Cowcatcher on by the time I left. I opted for the Addlestones cider, which others were also drinking. The interior felt a bit too modern for my liking.

I enjoyed my visit to this pub. Some great local beers on tap and a nice relaxed atmosphere.

One of the most unwelcoming pubs I've ever been to... The land lady should refrain from being in customer services, she obviously doesn't like it and hardly ever cracks a smile, Her side kick, the chef also needs to take some 'welcoming' training. People like this shouldn't run a pub as pub staff should be friendly towards customers... You may go there once or twice, but you will find the lack lustre atmosphere just puts you off! Much prefer the friendlier St. John's or dog and pastor on the junction road!
