This rather standard pub, a couple of corner kicks away from White Hart Lane, has designated itself as a Sports Bar although it doesn't really offer anything different to the other pubs in the immediate area. The L-shaped bar would ordinarily be quite dull and dated with its cheaply painted radiators and wallpaper that would not look out of place in a 1950's bedroom however the copious displays of Spurs pictures, team photos and memorabilia mixed in with boxers and caricatured snooker players do at least take the attention away from the blandness. Billy Nick seems to take pride of place on the corner of the bar as he casts his reverent eye over the punters below. The pub seems quite big due to its large mock Tudor frontage and the high fake beamed ceiling but on match day it can be quite packed although there is usually a bit of space at the rear if you can negotiate your way through. The choice of beers is as limited as pretty much everywhere else in the area with no Real Ales and just the usual mass market lager and keg bitter. As you expect of a Sports Bar, there are multiple TVs tuned to Sky, 2 dart boards and a pool table housed beneath a skylight at the rear of the pub. The music is usually modern clubby chart stuff and far too loud for my liking. In short, the pub is OK given the area, decent enough to watch sport on TV or meet before a game but nothing special and certainly nothing to set it apart from most of its equally functional but uninspiring neighbours.
