Alan Winfield left this review about The John Baird

The John Baird is situated in the middle of Muswell's Hills shopping area.
Once inside there isan L shaped room with the bar facing,the floor is part tiled and bare boarded,the seating is bench type and normal tables and chairs,the left side runs to the rear where there is what looks like a Indian or Chinese restaurant,this area was empty on my Thursday dinner visit.
I noted three real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Woodfords Wherry which went down well,the other beers were Woodfords Summer Breeze and Old Golden Hen.
I thought this was a decent enough pub to have a drink in.

It was quite busy on my recent visit, with several family groups having an evening meal and not many spare seats. Quite a few people were standing at the bar, with one person holding forth to a group of friends: a loudmouth whose only available adjective began with F and was used twice in every sentence. Good choice of beers on the eight or nine hand pumps. Two ciders, two porters, two bitters and a mild. We found a table, but the reason for the pub being so busy became apparent when quiz sheets began to be distributed. So if, like me, you would prefer a quiet drink, avoid this place on Sunday evenings.

Alesonly . left this review about The John Baird

I was in this Pub last night on my way back after the GBBF as its only about 200 yards from my house. The good points are they have some very good guest Ales on Tap and there always in excellent condition last night there was Mordue Workie Ticket' Doom Bar & several other good Ales on on Tap and all the ones I tried were in excellent condition. The Pub is always clean & tidy and the Staff are always very polite.
The only bad point I find is that they allow food too be eaten anywhere in the Pub not just in the restaurant part and I find the smell tends to put me off my beer. But this apart its not a bad Pub providing you go in when theres no sport on TV. But all in all Its worth a visit just for the Ales & Its much better During the weekday Evenings or during the day time as its a lot quieter.

For Beer & Ale Quality 10/10 overall score 7/10 due too the constant smell of stale food.
