About the Pub

Acquired by Fuller's from M&B in February 2009, a 17th century pub listed on CAMRA's Regional inventory of historic pub interiors, originally two buildings now forming one pub, it was also known as the Upper Flask, the Lower Flask being the pub in Hampstead. There are legends of ghosts and Dick Turpin is said to have hidden in the cellars. More plausibly, the 18th century painter, engraver and satirist William Hogarth, and revolutionary thinker and philosopher Karl Marx are said to have been regulars. The Flask is one of the area pubs where the ceremony of the 'Swearing of the Horns' takes place. Large asphalted front yard and garden which incorporates a covered area too. 5 handpumps on the main bar counter and 1 on a smaller one by the entrance door. Underground: Archway or Highgate. Buses: 143 & 210, 214 & 271 terminate in Highgate Village nearby.
