A very Irish themed pub yet on two separate visits I have encountered every nationality drinking in here bar an Irish person.
On the first occasion I visited on a very wet Saturday evening there were around five locals all sat separately and uttered not a word to each other.There was a friendly American barmaid chatting to one customer and the token North London nutter ranting in the corner.
My second visit on a hot Saturday afternoon encountered around ten men as I entered standing separately and of different nationalities each seemingly sneaking a drink as they had one pint each before hurrying off.Again no one apart from a group of young foreign students chatted.
But I enjoyed my two visits and will call in again,it can't be easy attracting customers in such a very highly populated area of immigration as drinking huge quantities of lager is not as religious to these people as it is to the British people.

Bog standard Irish shop conversion bar - didn't notice any ale on and doubt I'd have risked it if I had. Handy for sheltering from the rain while waiting for a bus.

I now note that draught Courage Best is available here - good to see in a shopfront pub, where real ale is rarely available. I haven't sampled it so can't comment on quality.

This is a decent enough Irish conversion pub with the usual array of draught that you would expect to find. The barmaid was friendly, the Guinness was good and the atmosphere after Arsenalís champions league victory was lively.

With the three plasma screens this is a great place to go and watch the footie, but Iím not sure that I would make a special trip.

The Gate Lodge doesn't inspire much confidence from the outside, where it looks like a fairly rubbishy north London shop front pub; in particular the name of the pub is in very dated lettering and it basically looks worth avoiding. Inside, I thought it was rather better than that - it had obviously been refurbished quite recently and was clean and welcoming although a trifle over-lit (it reminded me rather of a much smaller Highgate Ale House at Highgate, which again is a bit overlit). There was a pleasant crowd of locals drinking at the bar, although there were one or two definite oddballs about, which is perhaps unsurprising in an entrepot such as Golders Green. No real ales but I'd rate this above the Refectory, which is the only other pub in the immediate vicinity.
