The Stapleton Tavern is a corner pub that is opposite the Old Dairy pub.
Once inside there is a large single room which runs to the rear,the bar is on the left side,there are normal tables and chairs and settees to the front and normal tables and chairs elsewhere,the rear area opens out and is wider than the front area.
There were two real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Oakham Inferno which went down well,the other beer was GK IPA.
There was decent background music playing.
The pub was empty on my late Thursday afternoon visit.

Located on a street corner close to Crouch Hill station, this is a large pub run by Antic on lease from Greene King, hence the underwhelming (by Antic standards) beer range. The place has been given the full Antic makeover, with perhaps some of the more 'out there' décor that this chain has managed to put together. The front room sees a sizeable seating area narrow further back as the servery appears down the left hand side. The front section has a mix of tub chairs, button backed sofas and loads of low stools under pastel shaded walls with some low wood panelling under the windows. There are lots of small framed pictures on show, display shelves full of ceramics and tankards, table football, pinball and retro arcade machines. The bar has a simple counter with a mixture of light fittings above and some standard and low stool seating under modern wallpaper in the space opposite. To the rear is a very large room which was a little darker than the main bar and seemed to be set up more for diners thanks to lots of standard tables and chairs throughout. The centrepiece of the room is an enormous chandelier which gives the room its name. There is an open kitchen back here and a skylight, with lots more interesting bits doted around the walls. Apparently the room is used for movie nights, but there was just some quiet music playing on this visit.
The ale range was a little mainstream, presumably the result of the Greene King tie, with options consisting of Greene King IPA, Morland Old Speckled Hen, Skinners Betty Stogs and Sambrooks Wandle. The Betty Stogs cost £4.20 for a pint and was in reasonably good shape.
This is a nice pub to spend some time in, with a number of interesting features on show and some unorthodox décor and entertainment options to peruse. It's a shame that the ale range couldn't quite match up to that, but I suppose there is always the prospect of some decent guest ales, which makes this place worth stopping off in whenever you're in the area.

This pub was originally called the Stapleton Hall Tavern, thus Antic have (almost) restored it to its original name. This being an Antic pub, there was a reasonable ale selection available. I went for the Belhaven St Andrews Ale, but also available were Springhead Willy’s Wheatbeer, York Brewery Guzzler, and Green King IPA. Tasters were offered - a big plus in my book. The menu on Saturday lunchtime was fairly limited, with main course in the £8 - £12 range – the standard burger, with a good portion of chunky chips, was £9.50.

Like all Antic pubs, this one has plenty of space between the tables and a varied mix of seating, but with sofas and normal tables and chairs predominating. It also some of the usual house clearance style of décor and adornments, but this one is perhaps a bit more restrained than most. I didn’t spot any overarching theme in the décor. The main room is quite large, and is graced by both a table football game and a pinball machine (Bugs Bunny). There was a TV on, showing the cricket of course (on Sky Sport). There’s another room at the back past the bar counter, containing more standard furnishings.

As well as the fact that they always do at least a couple of decent ales, the thing I like about Antic pubs is that they don't cram in as many tables and chairs as possible. Fine if it's not busy, but perhaps not so good if it's busy and you're looking for somewhere to sit. I would be happy to drop in here for another pint or two sometime. This is another Antic pub that doesn't open until 4.0 PM on weekdays.
