Lovely little pub in Tuffnell Park that like a throwback to the quiet sedate days that we all used to think London was. It is a place where you can truly relax and spend a nice Sunday without being bothered by the irksome realities of of the tidal wave of humanity that is London life.

We came here last Sunday, a day of fag having had a walk on the Heath for Sunday lunch (I can't think of much...more

Been here a couple of times now, most recently last night. Each time it's been fairly empty, but the bartenders are friendly. I haven't tried the food, but it looks good.

This pub has recently had a bit of a refurb / takeover. The Sunday roast here is delicious. They have a small garden out back but since it hasn't really been warm enough to sit outdoors, sitting by the lovely fire is a great way to keep warm.

Bloody Marys are served in a mini jug, my kind of drink.

Lovely service, good d├ęcor and good music.more

I liked the dimly lit interior, although I could have done without the volume of the evening's jazzalthough it was quite amusing trying to work my conversation around a particularly long drum...more
