ive been here before when ive visited London, I like to see if it has changed, however it never does. the people there do not respect others and the area is always filthy, the beer is flat and foul tasting

Has to be one of the worst pubs in North London.
Extremely lazy Lithuanian barmaid, permanently glued to her telephone rather than serving or cleaning the filthy bar top/ tables. Hardly speaks or understands a word of English. The other punters were moaning about her too.
The toilets are filthy dirty. Flooded floor of urine, no toilet roll or hand soap, doesn't look like the toilets have been cleaned in months, possibly decades. You can smell the urine when you walk in.
Beer flies swarming about the filthy front bar area. Everything sticky and beer stained , despite not being busy and mid afternoon on a Tuesday.
Get some new bar staff and that would be a massive improvement to start with.

I like the Duth House and the simple mix of people you get in there...Although there are several pubs closer to my home than the Dutch House I prefer to walk the extra distance to the Dutch house because I like the friendly atmosphere, the drink prices are very fair and I like the general decor (low timber beamed ceiling-not a particularly authentic one but unpretentious and with a nice feel about it). They usually have live music on Friday nights and although there is not a proper dance floor a few people usually create their own. It's never crowded but this makes the atmosphere laid back and friendly.

used to love this pub but has become less friendly than it was before, only had a quick pint of flat larger which i dont like anyway but wanted to go in and see if the place still had all the charm it used doesnt.

Used to live around the corner from the Dutch. Unfair comments about the 'slightly dodgy Rangers period'. The Rangers supporting ex-landord is married to a Catholic and the vast majority of the clientele (if that's not too much of a posh word for the punters) are either Irish Catholic or black; and they didn't mind the one Union Jack flag with Rangers written on it.

That said, it's friendly enough. But it is quite a local's pub.

This is a friendly enough local. It's not smart, it's not fancy but that's just fine. It's probably the most mixed pub in the area, although it can be a bit blokey. Never seen anyone get any hassle though. If you're sat on your own it's quite possible one of the regulars will start a random friendly conversation, but they'll leave you alone if you'd prefer. The Friday night kareoke is an institution, where else would you get irish folk music mixing with freestyle dub?

It can get pretty smokey though (at least until July I guess). As a side note, the Dutch House apparently went through a slightly dodgy Rangers period a few years ago but thankfully it seems to be long gone along with the associated union jacks and "Billy's corner". No more orange than the next pub now.

The only time I ever went there I got charged 3 different prices for the same round. And it wasn't getting any cheaper!

This pub is my local and i've been in it several times. It's a bit depressing at first but the more beer you have the better it gets. Sometimes they have a darts thing going on in there and it;s really lively. I went in with my brother once and a friendly guy tried to buy my brothers kebab off him! we all laughed and then me and my bro sat down, got comfortable and watched the spectacular site of two big drunk tatooed blokes arm in arm singing "i got you babe" on the kareoke whislt looking into each others eyes. But the best thing, for me, about this pub is the fact that i can say, when directing people to my house from the tube station, "pass the dutch house on the left hand side" i've allways loved musical youth. i feel that they waould also like this pub and i wouldnt be supprised if they drink in there.

Never heard of this pub being called the Old Dutch. Anyway - dont like the place. Boring, insiped, unfriendly. You cant even see inside when walking past - that's a bad sign in itself

Nah, I prefer the Mol Cutpurse up the hill..

My only qualm with this fine establishment is that they show wrestling on the television. I'd still recommend a visit to the Old Dutch though, purely for the eclectic mix of people.

For my money the old dutch is the best pub in the South Tottenham / Seven Sisters area. Has a hidden charm to it that makes me want to return.

Slightly dank ambience, fairly friendly bar staff. Plays football and loud music simultaneously. Juke box(a few exciting numbers- 'the Drifters!'), Fruit machine. Superb DJ on a Friday evening. Interesting WC facilities. 2 Boards of Darts, 1 currently unavailable for use. Pop down there for a pint of Tetley's squire!Mine's a Fosters!!!!!
