Reacquainted myself with this traditional ale house and pleased to find it virtually unchanged from my memories and PSM’s review from 2014 still holds good.
The only slight complaint I had was that the available ale choice was a bit pedestrian with London Pride, Doombar, something called Prince of Wales Pale Ale (brewed in Burton so presumably a Marstons stable) and St Austells Tribute but fortunately the latter was drinking very well.
No sweary blokes in for my recent visit, just polite conversation amongst the assembled punters enjoying a beer so happy to be able to give the pub itself the rating it deserves.

A small traditional pub , more than adequately described by Pub SignMan in 2013,I remember this as being the best pub on a previous crawl a good number of years ago, so I had High expectations, the pub itself is fine but I felt much disappointment with the beer range,of the four pumps three were from Cottage Brewery, not a favorite, and the remaining pump offered Adnams Southwold Bitter. I went for the previously untried Cottage E Type, which was predictably unremarkable. This is what I would call a proper pub, but the beer choice was decidedly improper in my opinion.

We had a rather bad experience in here some years ago (incompetent teenage female staff), but as the Flask was closed we thought we'd give this pub another chance.

There's not a lot to add to that below. There's a real fire, the staff were friendly and efficient. My pint of Northumberland Brewery's Fog on the Tyne was very nice though at £4.00 for a 4.1% ABV pint is a little steep; still, this is Highgate and some of the houses across Pond Square go for in excess of £10 million so perhaps this is reflected in the beer prices. The loos are very basic; tiny, with what must be the smallest cubicle I've ever seen - it's more like something I'd expect to see in a caravan! Bar stools mean that the bar is hogged and difficult to access; they should be removed.

However, there were a couple of older blokes - obviously regulars - at the bar who were swearing their heads off. I'm no shrinking violet, but I don't want to drink in a pub where every other word, at volume, begins either with the letter 'c' or 'f'; I certainly wouldn't come here on a date, indeed a group at another table were clearly put out by their language.

I won't be returning to this pub until this boorish language is dealt with and therefore can't recommend it, which is a pity because in every other way this is a lovely little historic boozer; I would have given it at least 7/10.
