Best party on Upper Street by far.
Relaxed mid week, and a quality late night venue at the weekend.

Cocktails galore, and a cracking roast on Sundays.

My new local I reckon..

Went to musical bingo a few weeks and always love The Keston for it's cocktails and eclectic djs.

They have just checnged the daily menu which I can say is a vast improvement and features an amazing burger with skin on handcut chips and a tasty Sunday roast (no Yorkshires though!).

Can get really busy on weekends when you regularly have to wait outside but great for mid week or Sunday lounging around.

The keston is still one of my favourite bars in the north london area, have been coming here reguarly for over a year now and it's great no matter what night of the week it is. Perfect for that tuesday night date or the friday night get together with mates. I was especially impressed with the new quix night they are hosting on Sunday, different, cool and alot of fun!

My girlfriend and I had breakfast here last weekend. Really tasty and the portions were really generous, and at about six quid for a full English no way near as expensive as I would have guessed from the look of the place. The garden out the back gets all the sun but if you appreciate good people watching, grab one of the tables out the front like we did. Newspapers are a nice touch as are the smoothies.
Only criticism is the lack of eggs benedict (though it wouldn't stop me from going back again.)

Having been a regular visitor at the keston lodge for over a year now, I find the lastest review a little hard
to take in, I have never had a bad meal or experience in there. Sure the service can be a little relaxed
at times, and when it's busy there may be a longer delay than usual, but the food has always been great.

I was only in there this week with my partner and we both had a great meal from their new menu, the service was fine
and the food arrived within 15mins!

The staff have always been great, friendly and polite, fair enough they seem to have a laugh and a joke behind the
bar but who wouldn't. My only negative comment is that there is no real table service, you have to order both your
drinks and food from the bar...

This aside I would recomend the Keston Lodge to anyone!
