Now known as The Meeting. Visited on a Saturday evening. Good place to eat. Thai food was very good, if a little expensive for the area. But the pub... Forget it. Frightening d├ęcor and full of the sort of customers who are banned from other pubs in the area, Real bottom of the barrel stuff. Hard to believe that the restaurant coexists with such a awful place. Cant comment on the beer, but if you are happy to drink with such people the I guess you mind too much. We just stuck our heads in the bar after our meal. It took all of 3 seconds to decide to have a drink elsewhere.

The Southbury (as surely it will always be known to the good burghers of Enfield) has now been refurbed and rebranded as "The Meeting" complete with a funky sign with flashing lights underneath.
The Thai restaurant which previously was confined to the small area closest to Southbury Road has now moved into the larger space on the far side of the pub, and jolly nice it is too. The pub section now consists of the middle section and the area which formerly housed the Thai food and you can still get the food in the pub bits.
As this is a pub review site rather than a restaurant site, what is the pub like now?
Pretty good is the answer! It's a mixed bag to be sure (no real ales, slightly dearer than some other places in the area, can be a little cramped and has that "new pub" vibe which can feel a little soulless at times), but I firmly believe that the positives (comfortable seating, good karaoke and DJ nights, a nice crowd, efficient and friendly bar staff, good quality screens for sports and reliable drink quality) outweigh the negatives comfortably. The "beer garden" or "large expanse of tarmac with outdoor furniture on it" as it should more accurately be known, is still pleasant enough on warmer days and for smokers nipping out for a quick cigarette in the winter months as long as you can endure the fumes from Southbury Road. Given that there aren't that many pubs in the immediate vicinity, it's well worth a visit if you find yourself living in or visiting the area.

I was in fairly recently on a wintery Monday night and thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

The fire was on, there were a handful of regulars at and around the bar, the staff were friendly and helpful and the prices were more than fair.

Everything a decent pub should be.

It's always been a lovely building but the interior is starting to look ever so slightly threadbare.

A cold Monday night probably isn't the best gauge of a pub, but I liked what I saw.

well it seems that whomever mayfair123 is they don't like what i have to say about this pub because somewhat suspicioulsy my comments keep being removed - so i can only assume this person is the landlord or a very close relative or friend, because according to them this is THE greatest pub on earth! As i class myself to be of a higher intelligence i will not be drawn into playing such silly word in summary, if you're a chav who loves to drink in dives go visit this place because you'll love it - if, like me you prefer a classier establishment avoid it like the plague!
I am also aware this pub isn't in Edmonton per ce but as it is an area in the East of the London Borough of Enfield i think we can safely say i am referring to the correct pub - but just so there is no confusion; the pub i refer to is The Southbury Hotel which is across the road from Cineworld, Old Orleans, Pizza Hut, Brotheres Chinese Restuarant and The Outback...need i go on? i think not!

We visited the restaurant part of this pub and found it absolutely first class. The thai food was wonderful and the staff were very friendly and helpful. It was a pity that not more people were there to take advantage of this very nice establishment.
