This is a corner pub on the grand scale: a magnificent building with several entrances, some of which were not in use, and stacks of benches waiting to be put back out whenever the weather became suitable. I arrived half an hour before 5pm opening time and had to walk around to keep warm, but it was worth it to get to see the glorious interior. This was the final pub on my London's Beautiful Pubs route and a fitting climax. I challenge anyone to say this is not a beautiful pub!

The large central bar has several rooms around it, though there's an airy and open feel about the place. The corridor from the door by which I entered has a small private booth but mostly it's just normal pub furniture. Each room has a slightly different character, but there are details in the ceilings that are shared by all. See my photos for some of the features, or better still, come along and see for yourselves.

There were three real ales on offer: Fullers London Pride; Koomor Trunk, a Kentish bitter; and Three Sods Old Normal, a pale ale. I went for the latter, but after finding it not to my taste and having decided to eat here, I went for the Kentish bitter as well. It seems the pub business and the Totopos Mexican restaurant are separate businesses: there are menus on the tables and the bar staff will direct one of the serving staff to your table if you don't catch them as they go around. They do all home-made tortillas, enchilladas and nachos; I had the vegan version of the nachos, and it was good but quite honestly half as many would have been quite enough and I might go for something different another time. The beer was under £4.50/pint and my food was £11.

This pub is quite a long way out from the centre, and another time I might look for other pubs in this part of town to make a more localised crawl. One thing's for sure: there won't be anything to touch this for magnificence and beauty.

A first into this Grade II*-listed CAMRA National Inventory entry the other day and my God, this has to be one of the country's most opulent pubs. It wouldn't really be possible to describe the interior, so it's best appreciated on the pub's and CAMRA's heritage websites - indeed the CAMRA site makes the interior look a bit washed out.
This is an enormous pub with numerous coal fires keeping the cold at bay, and features a huge billiards room to the rear with a rather ominous projector screen showing something which may have been adverts. Due to plague protocols I couldn't really explore, except by way of using the loo (good and two cubicles if you will) as well as the in/out anticlockwise navigation system; I sat in one of the booths near the entrance. Customers seemed to be a mixed bunch and certainly a more inviting set than you see in other Green Lanes hostelries, perhaps deterred by the prices charged here.
Staff were friendly and efficient though there was just one ale on, the egregious London Pride, a smidgeon of shame on the place, so I opted for a pint of decent Guinness at a painful £5.04.
This is simply a must-visit pub, especially as it's now in the hands of the Remarkable Pubs Co.

A magnificent Victorian interior awaits anyone visiting this CAMRA National Inventory pub,it's a very fine example of it's type.I entered through the side entrance from Green Lanes with it's mosaic tiling which carries on into the pub itself.There is a tiny alcove,then several banquettes in black leather before a wooden fireplace.Through an arch there is a parquet floor in a more open section and this is where you will find the functional handpumps on the large island bar,there are a lot of non functional handpumps dotted about.The bar back is lit and has display cases of stuffed animals along with bottles and glasses.Finally there is a front bar .Everywhere there is fine etched glass,original features abound.Look up at the impressive ceiling,ornate and classy .There are columns supporting the ceiling in the bars.It's all very attractive as is the imposing exterior.
There were 4 handpumps operating on my visit drawing Redemption/Kernel collaberation Victorian MILD,Brew Buddies Wokka Light,London Pride and Hammerton N1 (decent nick ,£4.25 but I suppose someone has to pay for the interior upkeep).There are a lot of craft keg options too.There is a short burger menu with veggie,vegan and meat options for the patties.There is a late licence at weekends up to 2am and there was gentle muzak.A flag indicates it's gay friendly and there is a more mixed crowd in here compared with the other pubs on this part of Green Lanes.
Make sure you inspect this pub if in the area ,and with a decent ale selection I may well stay longer on my next visit.
