The Slug and Lettuce, Muswell Hill

Brianbrain - I don't want to get into a slanging match with you - but we appear to want different things from our pubs. I want decent beer - and by that I mean real ale. You obviously have other priorities like being welcome in workgear for example. I'm not knocking you for that - and in an ideal world there would be somewhere in the heart of Muswell Hill that doesn't mind if you have mud on your boots (as I too often have after work). However, I have never experienced the cold shoulder at the John Baird when in work gear, and I always get excellent beer there unlike the Minstrel Boy and Keenans - although I agree that Keenans is friendly and sometimes lively (although it can also be very very quiet). I never have a problem with the locals in the Royal Oak and the hill is far easier to manage after a skinful than Colney Hatch Lane which takes you to the Minstrel Boy and Keenans. Highgate Inn is also a good pub - but again beer selection is limited which makes it fairly low on my list. I never said there was a lack of DECENT pubs in Muswell Hill - after all you can never have to many - but the Slug was not a decent pub. PLEASE CAN THE MODERATORS MARK THIS PUB AS CLOSED ?

Winchester Pub Hotel, Highgate

Amazing interior - needs to be seen. Recently upped the amount of real ales. Gets absolutely packed when the football is on (this is Arsenal territory). Ales fairly unadventurous but well presented - staff friendly - good local.

Quinn's, Camden

Avoid the draught beer here - it is always awful. The selection of bottled beers is good but expensive, and the aged Mr & Mrs Quinn are legendary. However, I often cringe at the way Mrs Quinn speaks to her staff. I chatted briefly with one barmaid a few weeks back - asking where she was from, only to be interupted by Mrs Quinn who told her in no uncertain terms that she was paid to serve not chat! Quinn junior is just plain obnoxious. This pub survives on it's location, late licence and bottled beer.
