Not sure why this place is on a Pub site as its strictly not a Pub. Its just an over priced restaurant with a limited selection of mediocre Ales nothing outstanding. It could easy have been an excellent craft Ale pub but no its absolute abysmal how this place has been destroyed. If people want to run a restaurant there's plenty empty in Muswell Hill why not take over one of them instead of wreaking what was a good Pub. The good news is the tide is turning and there are some very good craft ale pubs opening around now so these places will just fad away.

Ridiculously over priced in every respect. If you are going to pay a fortune for a meal you might at least expect more than mediocre food served after quite a wait while unruly upper middle glass children throw darts at the window by your table.

A sad sign of the times; the old Clissold is much missed. The new overload of Kinks memorabilia is merely an attempt to compensate for the loss of this pub's soul.

Against my better judgement, I decided to forego my usual Thursday night drinking session in the pubs of Highgate and try the Clissold Arms. I was quite optimistic having popped in briefly on Sunday and noticed an attractive interior and exterior with a selection of real ales. However, the pint was quite clearly off with a putrid, vinegary taste. I respectfully complained; after all, these things do happen even in the finest establishments. However, the gentleman that appeared to be in charge retorted that, yes, the beer was off and, indeed, there had been a previous complaint. There was no apology proffered. Rather, I was simply poured another pint. Quite why they continued to selling the beer when they knew it was no good was beyond me. Further, quite why no apology was forthcoming was similarly perplexing. Matters then took a comical turn when observing the hapless bar manager attempting to make a Bloody Mary. He actually used a tablespoon of Coleman's horseradish sauce! This guy truly was the Inspector Clouseau of bar managers. This is a truly dreadful pub.
