I’d like to echo the sentiments of Alesonly below when he says that this place has improved as it is now back on my radar again. As mentioned there is now a pool table and I will add that a dartboard is also present to the right hand side of the bar. It’s still a Barracuda pub so the décor hasn’t changed, in fact it could do with a paint job and the furniture could do with being reupholstered, but the atmosphere is much friendlier and the young lady behind the bar would be a gem in any highly regarded pub in the country. Ruddles was the only ale available as the other two pumps were unused, but the Guinness was very good and great value rocking in at £2.55 a pint. Basic pub food is served at very low prices and the ‘Scores on the Doors’ hygiene rating team have given this place four stars which is very good and on a par with pubs that pride themselves on gastronomy.

I’d avoid here on weekend nights as the plasmas and pool table can attract a younger less thoughtful crowd and the advertised live entertainment every Friday night from 21:00 is likely to be karaoke which I detest, but for a midweek pint in the afternoon or evening one could do a lot worse.

Ex Wetherspoons Pub near to Arnos Grove & New Southgate stations. Very cheap & cheerful and OK for a few pints. At least its better than the Harvester at Arnos. Directors was in good condition when I went in recently and at £2:30 A pint I cant complain. It also seems too have Improved since I last went in here now has A Pool Table shows Sky Sports Etc.
