This is now very much a gastro pub / restaurant ( it recently made it into the Time Out list of 20 best Gastro pubs in London), and I can give personal experience that the food in here is indeed superb. There is a large rigid gazebo covering the outside front section of this pub containing bench seating, which I guess is a hangover from the pandemic and could well now be permanent, and inside the largely stripped out interior very much feels more of a restaurant than a pub.
The bar does have four handpumps and two of these were in operation for our visit and I couldn’t fault the pint of TT Landlord I had to complement the meal. By all means search it out for its menu, but if you are just after a pint then there are much better ‘pubby’ options nearby.

Another very food centric pub, it looks traditional from the outside but the feeling evaporates once within. Beers on were Robinsons Magnum,Olde Hoppy Hen and TT Landlord.A little average.

Dating back to at least the 18th century and rebuilt in 1928, this is a very popular pub which for some reason attracts a more vocal crowd. Food orientated but still manages to qualify as a real pub, this is worth a visit (you can't miss it really as it's right at the centre of any N6 crawl) but not a detour.

Ales on: Hook Norton's Old Hooky, Moreland's Original Bitter, Timothy Taylor's Landlord and Purity's Ubu at £1.95 a half which is very cheap for the area. However, it wasn't very good...
