|I really like this little pub. If you are a local to highbury, you will be painfully aware that there are very few places to go for a relaxed pint, but the woodbine really feels very cosy and welcoming. I read alot of the reviews which comment on the staff being a bit surly but I have to say that this has not been my experience - just really nice people. |
One negative comment - I would dearly love to come in with a tin of Dulux One Coat and get rid of that ghastly mural - other than that - a really good pub.

|Visited with friends on Saturday. We sat down and had a few pints (I'm a Guinness drinker and I have to say it was absolutely spot on!) I cant remember the exact price (Around the £3.60 mark). The chap behind the bar was alright, not overly friendly but still welcoming enough. My mate lives just around the corner and this is the reason we went in. He absolutely loves it and I can see why. A proper pub where you can sit, relax and have a chat. I shall be back!|

|I am a committed ale drinker and am therefore very choosey in my pubs, the woodbine I'm glad to say is now one of my favourites having discovered it shortly after moving to the area a few months ago. London pride and Tim tailors landlords are ever present with two rotating guest ales always available.|
The Sunday roast has to be seen to be believed and the Thai food always looks good too. My wife reports herself delighted to have found a pub we can both use close to us, and often finds herself enjoying a nice merlot on her own whilst waiting for me, always a good sign in my book.
The staff are all friendly and welcoming as indeed are all the customers many of whom have by all accounts been using the pub for many many years, all in all a great pub and I for one will continue to enjoy it. Top marks, keep up the good work.

|I live 5 minute walk from the Woodbine on Blackstock Road. I LOVE this place, it's by far the best pub in the area. Staff always remember my name and make myself and my boyfriend feel very welcome. The Jukebox is excellent and my boyfriend is slightly addicted to it!!! Thai food is good and the Sunday Roast is well worth a visit. Best local in Highbury by far.....don't tell everyone, i want to keep it to myself!!! lol|

|Beauty is but skin deep as they say and this very much a case in point. Looks good but unhelpful, surly staff who look at you as if you should be grateful they have acknowledged your presence far less offered to serve you.|
