Malden man left this review about Ye Olde Monken Holt

Situated at the very top of Barnet High Street, this pub has a front bar with low ceilings, leaded windows, lots of wood panelling, minimal decor being a few framed prints of a football team, framed drawings of beer engines and a Stones Ginger Wine ad. The front room is carpeted and sedate, this afternoon several lone drinkers were sipping pints and reading papers, but there was no conversation. I think it does liven up as weekend music and live sports are advertised and although I didn't spot any menus the barmaid was clearing a table as I arrived.
The front room has two opposite brick faced fireplaces, the bar is here, serving today GKIPA, Abbot, Courage Directors and Doom Bar (£3.20), one pump unclipped. Not too exciting.
Behind the bar the area is wood floored, with a TV and dartboard, then up a few steps the pub opens out to a small more modern area with another telly, a sit down retro video game and sofas. There is a garden beyond.
The pub claims to date from 1863 and states that it is the best pub in Barnet. A brave claim, it was ok but nothing outstanding.

Alesonly . left this review about Ye Olde Monken Holt

This was one of the Last Pubs we went in on our Barnet crawl last night found so I cant remember which Ales were on Tap. We found it a nice welcoming Pub especially some of the barmaids. Other staff were very friendly and polite as were the customers they had some decent Real Ales on tap in the front section where we were in comfy cozy Conner. Even though there was music & a Quiz on it was not too noisy to have a conversation even though there was Music playing in the back section which was very full of customers which is a good sign these days. I would definitely return when passing well worth a visit if your passing the area.

A real 'local pub for local people' but very friendly all the same. Ale in good condition on two recent visits and food very good (pub grub, under a tenner, very good steak). Sunny little garden out the back and lots of live music over the weekends, 'pub rock' and the like. Gave us a dish of water for the dog too, nice touch. Toilets clean but could do with a refurb.
