Wow, I first reviewed the Woodbine three years ago! That seems crazy. ANYWAYS, enough of my old woman mutterings. I'm upgrading this place to five stars. We've lived in the neighborhood for quite a while now and this continues to be our go-to local. It has only gotten better since we've been there and now serves Camden Town Brewery and Meantime on tap.

I like this pub and the staff has always been friendly with us.

Just wanted to confirm that we still like the place and that we love the beer of the month selection.

On top of that, don't miss the quiz night and the delicious Thai food.more

The Woodbine is on the Blackstock road near Highbury, the old Arsenal stadium. Apparently it used to the local scummy place where kids could served. Now, however, it is rather flash. It is a decent sized pub with a very well done. There are handsome varnished floors, gilded mirrors and an attractive bar. There a mix of tables; ranging from sofas, low-slung tables, to chairs and tables for...more
