Pretty poor; what kind of barmaid sits the glass on the drip tray and (tries to) pull a pint at arms length as if deeming it a dirty act. Nuts at 3.50 what's going on (politely declined). Proper con along with poor quality service. Can't comment on the quality of the beer as it was spoilt as it went in to the glass by the amatuer bar maid. Wonder what Adnams might have to say ( if they only knew!) If the rest of the brewers knew they would probably decline to be represented here.

Put simply, this is pub for people that don't really like pubs.
It has gone down the Gastro pub route and feels more like a wine bar than a pub, everything from the decor to the clientele look like they are here for a meal of a couple of glasses of wine and the beer pumps constitute little more than a token afterthought.
Service was at least pleasant and helpful, but even considering the location 7.10 for a pint of Grasshopper and a pint of Guinness is pricey by any reasonable measure. The beer was in its defence of good quality, but not so impressive that it was worth paying those prices.
If you are looking for a place for a nice relaxing wine after work with some nice food and have more money than sense, you may have found your perfect destination, if however you want an actual pub with good, reasonably priced beer and some sort of atmosphere, it's better to steer clear.
Oh and the incessant jazz funk soundtrack is another mark in the "cons" column too.

Just moved back to Finchley after a spell over sea's. The Catcher was my old drinking hole, but now am happy to eat there what a great improvement on the food.

Just moved into the area and pleasantly suprised to find this pub. Well-kept interior and fantastic staff. We didn't have time to eat, but the menu looked fantastic. When we've tried the food, I'll get back to you. At the moment, can't fault the place

A topsy turvey kind of pub where you go up to the bar area and then down to other parts. Ale was barely drinkable and the music was far too loud for the handful of people in the place (on a sat night) who were having dificulty in talking to each other. Not somewhere to make a special trip to.
