About the Pub

Considered by some wags the most agreeable pub in Golders Green, this is up the road from the now sadly closed Jack Straw's Castle (converted to luxury flats). Handy if you are visiting the less well-known northern extension of Hampstead Heath or the West Heath and Golders Hill Park. Made famous by Florie Ford's music hall song, "Down at the Old Bull and Bush" where people were invited to come and make eyes at her and perhaps no doubt they did. It's an old coaching inn set back from the road with seating out front. The interior has been much modernised and we are informed by the pub's manager (Nov 2019) that that "we offer two beers regularly with both on most of the time at least one at all times". Food served, for details and serving times click on their website. Bus: 210, 268.
