A good looking gastro pub in Muswell Hill just opposite the road entrance to Alexander Palace, which actually suffered a fairly damaging fire just after the last review and was repaired and redecorated and reopened in late 2017.
The pub has three main areas, primarily the main bar area downstairs, the restaurant upstairs and an outside courtyard area under a glass cover roof which is imaginatively branded as The Yard.
The two inside areas are still wooden floored with mainly wooden table and chair seating and the usual pastel shades gastro colour scheme.
The bar has a bank of six hand pump and there are usually four ales provided on these and for my recent visit these included Dark Star Hop Head, Hammerton N1 Pale Ale and a very passable Tiny Rebel Stay Puft Porter. For some reason I inexplicably failed to note down the fourth one.
It was fairly quiet for my recent late Friday afternoon visit but had the advantage that most others in were drinking and not dining. I find this a comfortable pub in which to grab a beer, but concur with the previous reviewer it’s probably better suited for taking your better half to for a bite to eat.

Victoria Stakes is a smart looking pub that is situated at the bottom of Muswell Hill and faces a very busy road junction.
Once inside there is a squarish shaped room with the bar facing,the room is bare boarded,the seating normal tables and chairs,the front left area is down two steps.
There were three real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Purity UBU which was a very nice drink,the other beer noted was Hopback Summer Lightening.
I presume there was a dining area upstairs,the main bar area was empty apart from me.
The background music was crap.
I thought this was a pleasant pub,the sort to take your wife to.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Victoria Stakes

Quite an attractive food-led pub, although the basic wooden benches out front detract from the external appearance a bit. Very busy when I called by, with a clientele to match the gastro-pub furniture and decor. Separate dining room for those seeking a Sunday roast. Garden advertised (but not visited). Three of four handpumps in service, offering Tribute, Purity Mad Goose and Sambrooks Wandle (£3.90).
