About the Pub

The pub was purpose built in 1850, shortly after the Finchley Road was driven through. The style is high Victorian, with a wrought iron balcony across the frontage. The Jubilee line is 3 feet below the cellar floor. The building is on a steep slope, so drinking spaces are at a different heights, and the large patio at the back, which can be covered and heated and has TV, is on three levels. The interior has only a few original features left: there are two marble fire surrounds. It is a football and TV sports-orientated locals' bar: there is a darts board in the back corner. Food includes bar snacks and daily specials, popular with local workers coming in for lunch. Food served: 12.00 - 20.00 except Fri (closes at 15.00). Extended to 22.00 on match nights. Underground: Finchley Road. Bus: C11, 13, 82, 113, 187, 268.
