A proper local pub in an area now sadly bereft of much of that sort of thing. It has outlived (in no particular order) The Plough, The Rose & Crown, The White Horse, The Black Horse, The Golden Hive and The Isaak Walton to be the last man standing in this particular corner of the Enfield Highway/Brimsdown area and deservedly so as it continues to be excellent year on year. I'm afraid real ale is still not available here, but there is a fair range of drinks at a very reasonable price. Atmosphere is friendly and tends towards the loud without being too boisterous. Probably the best place in the whole of Enfield for watching sport ( as the name might suggest) with multiple screens throughout often showing a mixture of football, GAA, darts, horse racing, rugby and pretty much anything else that's on. DJs and live music are pretty much regular features most weekends and it can be good for a lively night out, but it's just as good for a quiet beer or two after work on a midweek day. Jukebox with a zillion tunes available. Pizzas available now (special deal on Sunday means you can have one with roast potatoes as a side for a good price - I kid you not). Bar staff and landlord all very friendly and keep the drinks coming at a decent speed even when packed. Lucky to have it as my local, long may it stay the same! Still known to many locals by the nickname The Top House (a nickname that predates its current name and was used to refer to The King's Arms which used to be here due to its location at the top of Green Street) so if you can't find it or nobody seems to know where you are talking about, try that name and see the penny drop on them.

the pub management is good - nice staff - problem here is the chav nature of the local Brimsdown people - or GRIMSDOWN as it should be known
They are a backward and strange group and I would strongly advise against anybody normal living in this part of LONDON...........IF U R UNFORTUNATE ENPUGH TO FIND YOURSELF IN THIS UNPLEASANT PART OF LONDON, AND TRY AND LEAVE AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE

Now at the best it's ever been and my most regular drinking destination once again.
They have now started doing food and bloody nice it is too (Lovely Roast Beef was 6). There has been increasing instances of live music and karaoke and they also now have a 3D TV for the football (a strange but overall good experience). There is a regular crowd that is friendly that is starting to grow and fortunately there seem to be more new faces popping in too.
The jukebox is good, the prices reasonable, the service always top notch and all in all this is a fabulous local pub that's getting pretty much everything right.

This place is getting better all the time. The aforementioned changes to the windows has now been completed and along with the new blinds and curtains that have been put up, the landlord has succeeded in making a fairly large pub that used to be a bit rowdy into someting resembling a nice cosy little hideaway from the grim reality of EN3. Service and drinks are still top notch and apparently the landlord is now giving serious consideration to putting some live bands on. This is rapidly becoming one of my regular watering holes again. One can only hope that he manages to expand his pool of customers and make things a bit more lively on weekends without falling into the pitfalls that have seen this pub become a bit of a "trouble hotspot" in some of its previous guises. The guy seems to know what he's doing though, so watch this space as this may now be able to reclaim its former title of "Best Pub in EN3" from the current incumbent The Red Lion.
