|It is bad enough that we have to put up with the gimmickry of "celebrating" St.Patrick's day with Irish flags, shamrocks and leprechauns in an effort for businesses to persuade people to drink/buy more but considering there were no Irish customers and this is Barnet not Kilburn the playing of sectarian IRA music here is bang out of order and harks back to the bad old days that you don't even get in Belfast or Glasgow anymore. Irish music is one thing but sectarian bullshit extolling the virtues of murdering terrorists is another. |

|Pretty much same as last visit - staff were better but still had to change a dodgy pint. Their own stuff is usually okay when it's on though.|

|Down a notch on latest visit - you do get issues with staff doing 'more important things than serving customers' at times and I took a couple of ales back that were cloudy. Also it seems rare for any of their own brews to be on. Still okay and you can get a some decent brews on.|

|The brewery tap for the Barnet brewery is situated on a double roundabout just outside the town. Only one of their ales was on - Barnet Glory. But this was soon replaced by Barnet Best Bitter. Other ales were West Berkshire Blindside Flanker, Camerons Thirst Blood, Wychwood Hobgoblin, Springhead Maid Marian, Nottingham Legend, XT 13 & Colchester Red Diesel. The cider was Rosie's Pig. This seems to be popular with diners and families. Both were present yesterday lunchtime. Staff are mostly young. There were plenty of them. But they didn't seem the friendliest bunch.|

|After having heard some good things about this place since its refurb, I recently had cause to visit and have to say it is better than it was before by quite a margin.|
The decor is a bit less soulless and no longer too bright. Seems more spacious than I remember but that might just be my imagination and the beer garden is still lovely.
Good range of beers now including some from their own in-house (well, out the back if you want to split hairs) brewery, one of which that I had a couple of pints of was called "The Cat and Lantern" presumably named in honour of the long defunct pub of the same name that used to be in East Barnet Village, but which I am pleased to report was much better than its namesake and is worth trying if it's on when you visit. Prices are not terrible and beer quality was uniformly good as far as my friends and I were concerned. Worth a visit if you are out that way, but I'd stop just short of saying its worth a special journey for.
