Catchems Corner at the side of Vernon Road on the apex with Northern Crescent and is styles in a long narrow way that is quite unusual compared to most other pubs in the area. Walking up to it appeared closed as the lights were out in what looked like a room with a bar but after waling full circle saw one room that was busy with customers which makes me think the other is only open at busier times/weekends. The main bar room we entered had high ceilings and hard wooden floors with the bar running along the left and bending around the left hand side corner. There was a large open space at the back next to the dj booth that looks like it is a dance floor on weekends. The beer selection in here like most of the other places around these parts is very poor with only the usual keg options available. We settled for Guinness for £3.65 which is an outrageous price to pay for a beer in Highbury vale which we found most puzzling but at least is was pleasant enough and drinkable which is more than I can say about the park tavern up the road. We sat and watched as a group of drunken blokes blabbered on about a funeral they had attended. This is a very basic rough and ready type pub that is the standard type of drinking establishment for this neck of the woods. Only local people really visit here and you are not missing anything special by not going in. I would go again if ever around my friends who lives next door to it out of convenience but this place does not warrant a special journey.

Catchems Corner is on the apex of two roads which gives the pub a wedged shaped apperance.
Once inside the pub had a couple of rooms and it was a decent enough pub to have a quick drink in.
This pub used to be an Ind Coope tied house and there were no real ales on here.
This pub is still up and running but i dont know what beers are now on here.
