Now sadly shorn of its previous U.S.P. of a pizzeria after the most recent refurb and change of hands, this is still a very good pub. The increase in the number of different draft and bottle beers somewhat compensated for this however, and wisely the best decorative features of the pub have been left intact. Service was responsive and agreeable paced. Prices are a little towards the hefty side, but due to the lovely environment and quality of drinks and service I don't mind treating myself to a night in here once in a while. A pleasing hum of conversation supplemented by a reasonably diverse selection of background music generates a nice busy, but not racous atmosphere and the revamped food menu still looks (and smells) tasty, but might be a little overpriced. All in all, if the bank balance will stretch to it, this is well worthy of your consideration for a nice night out drinking with friends or loved ones due to the building, the booze and the atmosphere all being not just good but markedly better than any of the other pubs in the Wood Green area.

Nice pub with a good jukebox and the occasional Friday night live music thing going on.

Pizzas are good but not consistent; Great when the young chef is in, but greasy and overdone when the old guy is cooking.

Burgers are always bland, nachos again, depends on who's doing them.

Nice crowd frequent the place, there is 1 bloke in his mid to late 40's who resembles Sid James who can be a little annoying as he hovers around and is very loud but he's harmless.

1 large table full of old guys is usually always present, 1 of them, i think he owns the place seems to encourage it which i think puts some of the younger guys off.

Manageress is good as are the bar staff mostly, never have to wait long to be served.

Most major gripe is they keep running out of fosters and the Carlsberg tastes funny!

Not as consistent with food and drink as the Arc in Angel, but not too bad overall.

Upon entering this hole, one of two things will happen.

What’s most likely is that whoever is working will look you up and down and walk off to talk to their degenerate mates, no doubt in the hope you leave. The other option is that they’ll entirely ignore your presence at the bar, until they feel you have paid your dues and are now worthy to be served. Fourteen minutes later of course. If you dare to gain their attention by pondering uncouth utterances such as ‘excuse me’, prepare to be met with a level of disdain previously only equalled by Mel Gibson when Obama got the nod.

It is often said that familiarity breeds contempt. I can only assume the staff must think they know each and every person that walks through the door intimately.

Druggies have (been?) moved on. No real ale this afternoon. Service more attentive. Like the Ranelagh, this pub is pitched above the usual abysmal Wood Green fare & there's no inclination or incentive to strive any higher. A missed opportunity.
