redecorated interior (in a corporate style) Now all more open plan. Two ales on AK and McMullens Winter ale which no one was drinking - never a good sign so went for the Moretti here too - £4.95 a pint here. Wonder why 45p more than over the road. has a couple of pool tables to the rear.

I popped in before a late afternoon visit to the new Everyman cinema and I agree with the earlier reviewer who says it's improved quite a bit, though some work remains to be done. The bar staff were polite and friendly and the decor is clean, if not terribly interesting. In the past I've often found the real ale to be 'off' and even so now there was only one beer of three to be had (an acceptable pint of AK Mild) but I was assured this was temporary and the other two would be back shortly. There are still a few dodgy customers, nervously/intensely checking out whoever who walks in through the door, but I had no bother all the time I was there. I'm still not sure I'd want to hang around after dark but it's OK for a quick pre-cinema pint.

This place has improved quite a bit. It's still a McMullens pub though, so you are never going to get a pint that's more than average at best - not the fault of the people running the place. That said, the ales are very reasonably priced if not very strong. It's good value for money and a large roomy pub with occasional live music - pool tables as well to cater for the nearby Dollis Valley estate crowd. The place used to have a bit of a reputation as a punch-up-parlour, but I've been there a few times over the last year or so and never seen any hint of trouble, although there are some characters in there who look like they'd sell their granny for 50p!

I would imagine the pub's trade has been hit hard now the nearby Barnet Football Club have moved out of the area - the Old Red Lion a few yards away has already closed. Still, it's in a good location on the Great North Road by the cinema, well served by buses and the nearby tube station so if it's well run I don't see why it can't have a decent future - especially if they got serious about putting live bands on regularly and built up it's reputation for music - it could be a good music venue as it's got plenty of room for bands in one half of the pub while the regulars can play pool, etc in the quieter other half.

This is a rough pub. Walked in with my mate, and all heads turned. Clientele kept glancing at us while we there, I suspect because they thought that the only reason 2 smartish gents would walk into a place like this would be to make preparations for a police raid. Many of the drinkers were under-age, and I guess quite a few of them would describe themselves as "travellers".
Having said that, the beer (McMullens AK), when we were finally served, was probably the best I had all evening.
We left fairly quickly as my mate was getting a bit twitchy about the safety of his car.

Came in here after the game at underhill and i thought I had walked into a scene from Shameless.

The crowd was all around the mid to late 20's and the karaokee had just started, after adjusting my ears I parked myself at the bar and sampled three good pints of McMullan's IPA.

This being my 1st visit I had no idea what to expect but the bar staff where pleasant and the punters were no bother, all in all the pub is pleasant enough.

If I am here again this place would be my choice over The Red Lion.
