This pub has now had a makeover. It is now a quite trendy looking gastro type pub. There are two hand pumps now. When I visited they only had Adnams Ghost Ship on, this was very well kept. Other trendy beers on keg including blue moon. Staf were very friendly. Worth having a look in if you're in the area.

The worst and dirtiest pub in Finsbury Park. Now run by Turks and the prices have gone up. Greedy arabs.

One of the remaining bastions of proper North London Irish pubs, blessedly free of any fake paddywhackery on the walls. Contains tables, stools, variable drink and the odd window for looking out of. Come on in for a lonesome pint or a chat or an argument, depending on your mood.

It's a rough Irish pub in Finsbury Park full of hardened working class drinkers, half of which are watching the horse racing and the other half simply sit looking glumly at their pints. The d├ęcor is spartan, the service is matter of fact, the quality of the fosters was poor and one is led to concede that perhaps chain pubs are not such a bad thing after all...

...one half expects to see a down and out author writing his great novel in the corner but that would be romanticising the issue entirely.

2/10

People around the world ape the mythical "Irish" pub. if they saw the real thing they might not be so quick to romanticise the idea. The Blackstock is scruffy, but it is a proper Irish pub. Relatively friendly, but full of self-destructive alcoholic navvies with soiled trousers and pockmarked faces. Fun for the whole family. Needless to say they do not have any ales.
