Lots of greenery going on at the exterior walls but inside it is a standard London boozer. No ales on only keg but this once standard type of backstreet boozer is becoming an endangered species - especially in trendy NW5.

Have been coming here for 20 years and still haven't plucked up the courage to chat up the most attractive bar person in north London. You've noticed I've avoided talking about the beer and ambiance, which is strictly average. But the clientele is true Kentish Town and deserves your custom for that reason alone. Family legend holds that my Granddad attempted to 'nick' a car from outside this hostelry after leaving a wedding reception held here in the early 50's. Luckily he was too drunk to gain entry. A proud moment for us all.

Stunning exterior to this boozer. Visited on a relatively quiet Thursday night when one bunch of regulars were happily chatting about a recent Arsenal match whilst another had a humorous debate on the merits of Margate over Alicante. Definite regulars place given its back street location but the friendly Irish landlord makes an effort to make everyone welcome. Good selection of ales, which were very well kept. The interior is dark and largely oak but this adds to the back street feel of the place.

A classic backstreet boozer with, I feel, the most striking frontage of any pub in London. (and I’m not into gardening / flowers so to say that really is remarkable)

We stopped in for a lunchtime pint and the interior is really cosy with small table lamps and you get a warm homely feeling as you walk in. It's quite dark inside and that adds to the ambience. However I'm a pretty laid back and friendly bloke but as we walked in the lady behind the bar had a look of "Oh no, strangers, what are they doing in here" plastered all over her face which wasn't the most friendly welcome and if she had smiled I think her face might have cracked. That said the two locals at the bar paid us no interest and otherwise it seemed a friendly enough sort of place.

We sat outside and it was nice to watch the world go by. Different types of clientele came and went from the table next to us so good to see that it attracts different cross sections of the community.

I didn't have an ale (it was hot so ice cold lager was the order of the day) but I’ll definitely return, especially in the winter to cosy up in such a warm haven.

it's a fine pub. though I no longer live in the area I have a number of family anecdotes relating to this pub that bring me back on a regular basis. Some staff have been there for years and add to the atmosphere of the place. Having said that I rarely have more than a pint here while I read my paper and reminisce.
