First visit here last night for several years to try the pub quiz as myself and my mates were looking for a new decent pub venue to enjoy a few pints and have a laugh stretching the old grey matter, and I'm please to report that this is still a lovely pub. The decor has been revamped but in a tasteful way and there is plenty of comfortable seating and cosy corners to settle in for the night. The beers are good even if they did run out of Brooklyn Lager and the Timothy Taylor Landlord took an age to pour and the prices are standard for a North London pub of this type. Service was pleasant and they were very apologetic for the problems encountered.
The quiz itself was good, the punters seem like a very nice bunch and the atmosphere is very pleasant. Definitely worth a go if you're in the neighbourhood. This little stretch of Hornsey is something of an overlooked gem for pubs and restaurants amongst a lot of North Londoners that gravitate towards Islington, Crouch End or Camden by default. Take advantage now and sample its delights before it becomes more popular and you end up paying more money for the same things if you can even squeeze into any place along here!

Horrible, pointless refurb. Hard echoey surfaces, no soft furnishings to dampen the sound. Mediocre beer choice (it's not 2002 anymore, lads) and removal of pool tables (par for the course these days, but nothing worth coming here for in compensation).

But they went to check out some rivals and saw those old Edison lightbulbs were fashionable and got some of those, so it's not all bad.

Annoyingly changed their opening hours over the Christmas period and didn’t open until 4pm on Saturday.

I only found this out at 2pm when I arrived and found a note on the door.

Will return another day.

Been drinking in this pub intermittently since 2005 - became a regular "regular" last year - the bar staff know my name and i know theirs - got very irritated lately -1. the jukebox pumps out crap if you put no money in it, 2. it doesn't work properly - but they don't turn it off - so your choice is listen to crap or constantly hassle the bar staff about the jukebox eating your money, 3. This is what really irritated me - got to the pub after a really crappy journey ( bus diversion/long walk ) kitchen is closing NOW - tried to order food but as kitchen is closing NOW ( not five minutes ago, not half hour ago but NOW ) you can't get anything - really! after 7 years of drinking here ( on and off ) this is how you treat a regular - the barman ( i know his name ) thinks that calling me by my name is customer service - just a couple of weeks ago he was telling me all about his NVQ and about how he never hassles customers to buy bar snacks with their drinks etc..... THIS IS NOT CUSTOMER SERVICE - THIS IS WE'RE CLOSED SO GET LOST......OK SOD YOU THEN - the truth is that this is the best pub in the area - but i'm damned if they'll see my money again - i would ask Nigel ( the landlord ) to sort it out , but he only shows his face intermittently ( and despite 7 years or so drinking in this pub i still have no idea what the landlady's name is ) SEE YA! - DRINKING ELSEWHERE FROM NOW ON

Large pub with tall ceilings, a long L-shaped bar and plenty of beers to choose from - Red Squirrel London Porter, Ringwood Boondoggle, Wadworth Red White & Brew, Redemption Pale Ale, Timothy Taylor Landlord & Fullers London Pride. Addlestones was the real cider available. The staff were very pleasant.
