Park Tavern in N4

I don't think this pub has changed much since the previous reviewer's visit, but there was one handpump now in the back bar, clipped for Doom Bar. But I went for the Guinness, at £2 a half. There was no sign of any food at Wednesday lunchtime.

This is still very much a locals' pub, just off the beaten track. There are essentially two separate rooms, but now joined by an archway behind the servery. Apparently the screening, or wall, between the two rooms, was removed about ten tears ago. According to the landlord, the pub dates back to the 1850s, but there's nothing remaining from that period. In the back room the bar back contains illuminated adverts for Bass and Worthington E, which look to be 1950s enhancements. The windows throughout have delightful stained glass panels coupled with opaque glass in the upper parts; apparently at some point Bass/Charrington decided to remove the glazing in the lower parts to be replaced by clear glass so that those passing by could see into the pub to admire the interior.

Both rooms are carpeted, are furnished with standard tables and chairs, and both still have dartboards in them. The landlord said that he is going to remove the carpet in the front bar, which should reveal the splash area that is currently concealed under the tatty carpet.

This is clearly an unpretentious and much appreciated locals' pub. The beer selection isn't great, but I appreciated the simplicity of the place.

An old German beer style, but not a top-fermenter. No, this a description of a classic Lager style: Dortmunder Export. The type of beer which for a big chunk of the 20th century was the most popular in Germany. Until Pils came along and unseated it from its perch. Export has ....

Dark Star Not Into Yoga Bizarre. Tastes just like a pina colada with tropical fruit and coconut and yet has a bitter, beery finish. Sounds all wrong and yet it really does work.
