Extensively refurbished in October 2022 and under new management since then, this is a pub that locals are proud to frequent and a destination venue for people from further afield, due to its cosy atmosphere, and the warm welcome delivered by a wonderful team.

Hidden in the leafy back streets of East Finchley, this ‘urban village inn’ serves McMullen cask ales and Rivertown craft beers, European wines, and premium spirits and cocktails, with a classic, seasonal, British pub menu on offer Wednesday to Sunday, including sensational Sunday roasts.

The secret courtyard garden tops things off and is very popular in the warmer months of the year.

The wine list is sourced from Europe and England, it’s mostly organic, sustainable and comes with a low carbon footprint. Gins and vodka come from Highgate’s renowned Sacred Spirits.

The quiz night on the second Tuesday of every month is hugely popular and is regularly fully booked a month in advance.

This is a nice traditional Pub away from all the awful Plastic restaurants that call themselves Pubs in East Finchley. I often pop in for a few pints of Mc Mullen's Country Or the Guest Ale when I'm passing. It now also has A large TV for showing Football & Sport as well but this has been put in place of the dart board so this means the Dart Board has been relegated too a almost a unusable position at one side by a table. Also do Sunday lunch & Thai Food during the week.

Well off the beaten track this pub is a country pub in East Finchley. Has a medium size bar and a small secluded beer garden at the back. McMullen's beers on offer. Well worth a visit

Although this pub is a little rough round the edges I still quite like it. It's a little off the main drag, so you probably wouldn't happen to just stumble across it which is why it is more of a regular's pub (who seem friendly enough).

The offerings from the bar that I spotted were a couple of Mccullen's ales, Worthington Cream Flow, Fosters, Kronenburg, Guinness and Strongbow. The barmaid was very friendly as was the gent watching Sky that let me get to the bar without me having to ask.

There is also a patio garden to the side of the pub, but unfortunately while I was there someone up the road decided to tune their motorbike. This place is by no means the perfect pub, but it's not bad.
