The Worlds End is a corner pub that is not that far from Finsbury Park station.
Once inside there is a large opened out room with the bar facing,there is a table football close to the front entrance,the seating is long tables to the front and normal tables and chairs elswhere.
There were four real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Portobello VPA which went down well,the other beers noted were Hop Stuff Justified,Hogs Back Golden ? and GK IPA.
There was decent background music playing.
I thought this was a decent pub to end my crawl in.

Yet another train cancellation led to a quick diversion from the station to get a pint,and I'm glad I made the short walk.The pub has two sections with the front bar running around the glass fronted part of this street corner building.It's been opened out ,has comfortable wooden chairs and tables with a modest flatscreen for Sky Sports.There is a table football by the front door.There is a very attractive carved wood and etched glass entrance door to the back bar which is well worth exploring.Here there is a stage for live music and a very ornate high ceiling,and pleasing fireplace with a pub mirror above.The audience seating is very basic canteen tables and chairs but further back below another flatscreen are some high backed bench seats.The performance area has a lot of music posters and other ephemera which give more interest.Both bars are served from an island servery with the usual keg suspects and two real ales on my trip in GK IPA and Sambrooks Wandle,decent £4.
A pub quiz and music at weekends mark this out as a community type pub,and although the ale choice is mundane,this is the best pub I've found around Finsbury Park to while away a bit of time.

This is a large multiple room corner pub a short walk from Finsbury Park station. The various rooms wrap around a long U-shaped servery in the centre of the pub. The area to the left of the entrance is quite dark and has exposed floorboards and dark wood panelling. There are some screened seating spaces next to this space, under large windows, with some of the sections boasting some nice tiled flooring. The front section has bare brick and pastel shaded walls with numerous TV screens showing sports channels and some large industrial cog-wheels on one wall. Lots of LP sleeves have been stuck on various walls and pillars reflecting the pub's live music tradition. At the rear there is an amazing space with a fantastic ceiling boasting curved sides and some intricate decorations with a matching frieze. A fireplace stands to the left and has a pub mirror above it whilst a row of plain windows and a couple of etched glass panes run along the opposite wall and allow you to view the front room. To the rear of the room is the performance area with music scheduled for several nights each week. Moving round to the far right hand side of the pub you pass a table football game and lots of standard and high bench seating, before emerging into a dining room style area with standard tables and chairs, a fireplace on the end wall, a stack of board games and lots of old pictures on display.
I walked around most of the servery and only noticed the one hand pump serving a decent drop of Truman's Runner at £3.80 a pint, but it seems that I somehow missed three other pumps, so the range may have been a whole lot more exciting.
This place doesn't really look like it's going to be up to much on passing, but I was glad I stopped in on my way back to the station, as there are some interesting features to discover, especially in the rear room. There are some good pubs further up Stroud Green Road and this place is a solid option to bulk out a crawl of the area.
