The Duke's Head was my favourite pub of 11 I tried in North London yesterday. It's situated at the top of the hill in Highgate village and is an old coaching inn. Nowadays, it has a modern appearance with a good selection of real ales, real ciders and craft beers on keg. Ales on were Magic Rock High Wire, Electric Bear Werrrd!, Uley Bitter, Siren Yulu & Liquid Mistress, Stroud OPA & Five Points Railway Porter. Ciders were Seacider Marmalade & Kentish Pip Craftsman. Craft beers were from breweries such as Brew By Numbers, Siren, Lost & Grounded, Burning Sky, Bristol Beer Factory & Anspach & Hobday. The only surprise to me was that there weren't more people in. Possibly the best pub in Highgate.

I was walking past and happened to notice it had obviously changed hands and had a refurb, so went in to take a look, and have a pint. The range of interesting cask and keg beers was very impressive - not a generic tasteless lager in sight. If this is a Euston Tap influence, it's a very welcome one. I had a delicious and very fresh-tasting pale ale - can't remember it's name. The decoration is restrained and tasteful, and the only slight irritation was some totally unnecessary and unwelcome music (why?). Anyway, I don't want to end on a negative - it felt like it has the potential to be a really great pub, and I will definitely be back!

Just popped in as it looked like it had been refurbished - and it has! Today, it still smells of paint. New manager (she's ex-prince of wales) explained what's going on. Good range of beers and more to be added. Some local brews and lots of specialised. Both kegs and casks. Beers, stouts and lagers (and a couple of ciders). Very clean and modern inside - but sympathetic. I'll go back in a few weeks to see if and how the 'new' has worn off.
