There were a couple of ales on - Doom Bar and Purity UBU (£1.80 a half). I didn't see any sign of food at midday on a Monday.

This pub has some nice fielded paneling on the walls to two-thirds height. The bar counter front is also inter-war, and also with fielded panelling, but unfortunately now painted a dark purple. The central island bar has the main drinking area at the front; a smallish room through a doorway on the left; leading to a further room at the back where the panelling has been painted a bright aquamarine colour. I chose to sit at the front, preferring the purple bar counter to aquamarine walls. There is some further booth seating behind the servery.

This is a decent pub without being anything special. I could have done without the thumping pop music, and I prefer a more traditional colour scheme, but my UBU was in fine shape and it's certainly worth dropping in for a swift one if you're in Whetstone.

The locals in this pub enjoying sitting at the bar which faces the entrance so when they are all in attendance it can be very tricky getting past to actually enter the pub and it is sometimes even trickier getting to the bar for a beer. That said, the staff have much improved in here over the last couple of years so on the whole they are very friendly and good at spotting people waiting to be served through the sea of usual faces. A standard draught selection is available alongside Greene King IPA and Landlord and the Guinness is always spot on which cannot always be said of the Landlord. I’m not sure that I have ever seen anyone eating in here, but reasonably priced food is available at lunch and during the evenings.

There is seating out the front which is partitioned off from the very busy junction that it sits next to by some potted hedges and a fence. It’s not the best place due to the traffic, but I can see my bus home coming which is handy as last orders are at midnight and the last red carriage passes at 12:05. There is more seating in the well kept courtyard area out the back which also houses a plasma screen for Sky sports.

The actual pub is quite big with the bar and stairs up to the toilets being located in the centre so the tables and chairs circle around the pub and there is also a good sized room to the side which can be hired for functions. Plasma screens are located throughout and when there is no sport on music can be heard from either CDs or a channel off Sky.

I don’t drink here all of the time, but it is a handy pub to have on the doorstep.
