As with the other two Mitchell & Butlers pubs in the vicinity (The Starting Gate & The Maid of Muswell), enough is done to put the ambience well above other pubs in the area but there is no impetus to make them reach any higher and the starting baseline of the surrounding competition is low. There’s a small rotating menu of guest ales, but it takes some disregard to turn Dark Star’s Hop Head into a boring pint. I’m no gastroboy, but the food is an average waste of an appetite but, hey, the place is thriving in the absence of any real competition and a well-heeled clientele seem grateful.

Bounds Green is unspeakably dreary. The Ranelagh is a decent refuge from the unremitting greyness. Limited range of ales but very pleasant ambience and friendly service.

A polite middle class pub where you might take your other half on a date if you are a little past your prime but want to get out the house for a change, or if you just met them on the internet but don't know their taste well enough to risk anywhere too niche. Alternative use would be if your office is having a leaving do. So a safe option, but still they have a good selection of drinks and polite staff so I'm not knocking it too much.

Much improved from my last visit had a few pints of Doombar & Pride which were both in good condition and service was quick and polite. There is a nice Beer garden in the summer if its not overrun with kids but it was constant raining on my afternoon visit so never used it. Overall its a much better Pub now. But much more could be done on the Ale front I feel there missing out big time especially as there's not a decent Ale Pub around here for miles now that The John Lawrence has gone Northern Star has gone The Turrets has gone The Bank has gone even The Orange Tree the only pub just hanging on is the Springfield and that's half closed and run down.

Very popular pub and deservedly so. It seems to be aiming for the slightly up-market crowd, but whilst the prices might well have been designed to keep the likes of myself and the other riff-raff out, it's actually a lot more welcoming and comfortable to fans of a more traditional local pub than the majority of that ilk. A comparatively broad range of draught lagers and real ales are on offer, and I've yet to have a bad pint here. Particular favourites are Sierra Nevada Pale Ale which is always a treat on draught and the beers from the local Redemption Brewery in Tottenham. The pub quiz on a Tuesday night which is my main reason for visiting the place is more entertaining than most and of a fairly high standard. A decent sized pub in a very nice building and the outside area is very pleasant on the few days of clement weather that North London gets every year. Service is always courteous and rarely takes too long. Well worth checking out if you are anywhere nearby. Haven't tried the food yet, and it is a bit of a gastropub, but what I have seen and smelled from neighbouring tables does seem very appetising.
