user reviews of Molly's Bar, New Southgate

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

This pub is handy to get to as it is near Arnos Grove Tube Station the beer is good they have loads of TVs for sports coverage but it can get a bit noisy as racing on one and football on the other very clean pub most of the customers are very friendly but there are a few idiots who sit up at the bar and when you go in on a weekend to dance and enjoy yourself you need to avoid the all day drinkers swaying on the bar stools lovely blonde London irish landlady who works hard and runsa great pub keeps it very clean, you can always get served quickly and there is always entertainment at the weekend I recently visited and thought I could take my Mum here for a night out - dark haired dancing barmaid was not here when I last visited during the day on a Saturday afternoon there was a new lovely irish barmaid very friendly who made me and my friend very welcome. Well worth a visit.

This Bar has Now Been refurbished and redecorated. I think its much better than before seems much more light and modern as the shop front has now been changed & modified it feels much warmer in here now. I Only Had a quick pint as I was on my way too the station but I would definitely go in next time I'm passing. I found the staff and other customers polite & friendly enough and I would prefer this to the Arnos Arms.

Pub has re-opened (it closed in October, 2009, after a fire).

It's a locals' pub, but once you're inside, you don't feel intimidated. Almost everyone in there knows each other, but if you're a stranger, they won't care and will either talk to you (especially if you know your football or horse racing) or leave you alone.

Staff are always good: quick, good memories, and even though there's rarely more than one person on, they're always on top of things.

Furthermore, the Guinness is good (it's an Irish owned pub and many regular are Irish or have Irish backgrounds) and beer is cheap (for London).

Okay molly's bar......
Its very local,but i can tell that if you were in there for two evenings you would be accepted as a new local!!
Not much to look at, but will say has the friendliest bar staff ever!! The irish girl behind the bar was fast,remembered the round instantly and was delievering pints of pefect guiness down to a table full of older 'Less mobile' customers even though the place was packed and she was in effect a one-woman show!!
Was in there to watch footie, sunday arvo and was gobsmacked when trays of roast spuds, sausages and chicken were sent around to all the tables in the place....... brill, good guiness free bar snacks and good atmosphere.....

Well done 'ash' you made my weekend!!

This pub has been renamed Molly's bar.

I first went in here a couple of weeks ago after a pint in The Bank by New Southgate station and found it to be an improvement (which wasn't hard).
I walked past it twice and when I did find it I nearly carried on walking as it does not look the most welcoming of places from the outside.
I was pleasantly surprised when I entered as there was some good banter at the bar and the barmaid was very friendly.

They serve Krony, Fosters, Strongbow, Guinness and a couple of bitters. I may have forgotten some of the selection due to the flow of Strongbow.

Last Friday night there was a band from Donegal playing and on Saturday night a different band from Donegal playing. Obviously this place gets through its fair share of Guinness!

There is a pool table in the back room but wrap up warm as it is bloody freezing in there.

I wouldn't go out of my way to drink here, but as it is local I can imagine myself spending some time in here watching sky sports over a few pints.
