This is a great little conversion to a bar. Barmaid assumed by the look of me that i would like the 4.0 lager she recommended to me before i even got to the bar. Wrong ,i went for an imperial stout.I was just about to ask someone where the toilets were when i thought this place is tiny,surely i can find them myself.It took me two circuits of the pub before i found them just behind the front door.

This really is a tiny bar,most definitely micro so time your visit carefully and avoid Spurs match days.There are 6 tables of various sizes and a narrow drinking ledge but more than 15 punters and it will feel rammed .There are benches outside.The internal loos are now just single cubicles.I really liked the jazz soundtrack,it added to the calm atmosphere.
The interior conversion is well done and has retained glazed tiling.The bar is small,there is even room for a tiny kitchen in one corner,so meals are available (at a price) besides bar snacks like scotch eggs.There is a helpful beer menu listing 10 options and for the pre football crowd Flensburger Lager is priced at £4.70.The rest of the options were from some leading craft keg brewers,although I noticed outside some spent key kegs so maybe some of the offerings here will pass the CAMRA real ale test.Sadly the beer menu didn't mention key keg.
On my trip options were from Brew by Numbers,two Kernals,a saison sour and my Pale half at £3,Howling Hops House IPA,a Redemption and an Overtone ,a sparkling cider and Siren Soundwave IPA.A decent selection but pint pricing £6-£7.60 so charge your wallet before entering.
You might get some fine craft keg options here but it's probably a pop in to see venue rather than somewhere to base yourself for a whole evening.

Just over the road from Tottenham’s distinctive High Cross, from which it takes its name, this is a quirky little craft beer bar set in a former public toilet block. The Ladies and Gents have been knocked through to create a narrow but wide single room with bare floorboards, white tile walls and small clear windows with drawn curtains. The left side of the room has hard backed benches and standard chairs around the rear corner under high shelves that are stacked full of boxes of crisps. A drinking ledge with some high stools follows part of the front wall which has been covered with some nice old framed postcards of Tottenham’s former attractions. There’s also a small TV screen here, but this was switched off on a match day afternoon, so it’s unclear if they ever actually show any live sport on it. A very small and simple servery has been squeezed into the rear right corner with a basic wooden counter and white tile bar back. Annoyingly, there is no beer board, so you have to inspect the taps yourself, which was easier said than done with a heaving pre-match crowd in attendance. A glance out of one of the small windows revealed some very limited seating options out to the rear of the building and plenty of customers were standing down both sides of the pub too, all with plastic pint glasses in hand. Match day pies are available, and they offer a daily selection of pricy bar snacks too (scotch egg - £5.00). Music was playing somewhere in the background, but this was easily lost under the chatter of a packed room, although I somehow managed to time my visit perfectly, getting served as soon as I reached the bar.
I counted ten keg taps in total, some mounted on the bar counter, others on the bar back, so be sure to check them all. A lot of the usual names were present and correct, including Beavertown and Siren, although I plumped for the Kernel Pale Ale, which turned out to be a rather upsetting £5.90 a pint.
This is definitely a quirky, unusual pub that is fun to take unsuspecting friends along to, although perhaps the most unexpected thing would be having to fork out nearly six quid for a pint of beer in Tottenham. I don’t doubt that I didn’t see this place at its best with the busy pre-football crowds in attendance, but it felt like a novelty place rather than a credible bar and as such would only really merit inclusion on a wider pub crawl.
