This pub was better than I expected, as I never expect much from Stonegate pubs (other than the 50p off a pint of real ale with a CAMRA voucher). But they had on Doom Bar, Timothy Taylor Landlord, Rockin' Rudolph, Watney's Pale Ale, and Nag's Head Ale (brewed by Caledonian). The Watney's Pale was undrinkable, but readily exchanged for the Nag's Head Ale, which was in fine shape. They were doing hot food on the Wednesday lunchtime I visited, but I didn't see a menu.

The layout is much as described previously. The mosaic flooring is still there on the floor leading from the door on the left, quite likely leading to a billiards room at the rear. There is some nice old floor to ceiling wooden panelling, including interspersed mirrored panels, on the walls. Hard to date - could be inter-war. Furnishings seemed to be traditional and comfortable.

This is a surprisingly good pub. There are plenty of drinking establishments in Upper Street, but not that many good pubs.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Nags Head

With its two entrance doors separated by a picture window, this was once a common type of terraced London pub, but finding both doors still in use is quite rare nowadays. Anyway, one inside (by whatever route), you find a narrow wood-panelled rectangular bar with a two-part counter and two rooflights in the gloomy rear section which help a bit (although lighting levels are low throughout). Also has a couple of small tables out front, and a standard Stonegate menu. Three of five handpumps in use, offering the 'house' Angel Ale (4.1%, and brewed with five malts and whole flower hops apparently, £5.05), Bombardier and Landlord, with Adnams Mosaic and Watneys Pale Ale 'coming soon'.

Until the other night I hadn't been in here since the late 1980s, so can't really remember it. It's well described below and is worth of the description 'pub', nothing more, nothing less.

The barman was very friendly and enthusiastic. Ales up: Fuller's London Pride, St. Austell's Tribute, Deuchars IPA and Flying Scotsman and Adnam's Ghost Ship which was on form and at £3.90 a pint, is good value for the area.

Worth a visit in passing, but there are much better pubs off either side of the Upper Street strip.
