Not a terrible pub, but not great. Full of TOWIE girls and identikit Essex blokes, perma-tanned and 'sleeve' tattooed whose frequent visits to the toilets would raise an eyebrow on even the most Botoxed of brows. Annoyingly narrow in places means that getting to the bar is a chore, they do, however, have plenty of staff when it's busy.

That said, if you can escape the throng, there's a decent beer garden and a couple of pockets where it's possible to have a breather away from the Essex Illuminati. Oh, and it's a Tottenham pub, so take a point off for that.

Popped in on a Thursday evening and couldn't get to see what ales were on as the locals guarded the bar with antagonizing glares and folded arms, even though there were dozens of seats available. When I did get to the bar was able to observe their wide selection of shit lagers and two ales (Doombar and Timothy Taylor)

Supped our drinks while two white-van drivers swore across the bar to each other, and a couple of botox casualties compared their orange tans.

Three Colts was a famous execution site before capital punishment was abolished in Buckhurst Hill in 2008. Three live colts were actually used for executions, with the condemned being mounted on the animals nooses around their necks. A hand-bell signalled the horses to gallop, unseating their doomed riders, as crowds of ale drinkers looked on.

The gallows have gone, but the establishment remains, as do the three colts, who are stabled at the rear of the pub. They still rear-up and bolt around the yard when the landlord rings the bell for 'time' and a chilling thwack of tensing ropes can be heard on nights when the wind is low and westerly.

Today, its a nawty little boozer. A good place to meet 'chimneys' before hitting the Golden Mile. Oos Calling it on?
