Feeling thirsty after a walk from Brent Cross shopping centre, up through Hendon, Mill Hill, and Totteridge, I visited the Railway Bell for the first time on Friday 10th June. With it being a Friday night, and Euro 2016 starting that evening, I was concerned that there might be nowhere to sit, but I found that the pub, which looks small from the street, extends quite a long way back, with a pleasant conservatory-type area and beyond that a beer garden with tables. As expected the pub was certainly crowded, but I secured a table by the back window and found the atmosphere to be quite pleasant, although a little on the noisy side. The ales I had (Courage Directors and Sambrook Junction) were both very good, and I'll certainly be coming back when I'm next in the Barnet area.

The Railway Bell is a bright and airy Wetherspoons, which was quite refreshing. It was also very busy. The furniture layout can appear a bit cluttered in places. The ale range was Wickwar Cotswold Way, Shepherd Neame Low Blow, Three Castles Corn Dolly, Titanic 7C's, JW Lees Drayman's Reward, Liberation Sin Bin, Greene King Abbot, Sharps Doom Bar & Ruddles Best. Considering this was a beer festival, I was a bit disappointed that there were no darker beers on. The one cider was Old Rosie. Very handy for the station.

Very smart refurbished Wetherspoons. 10 real ales were on offer when we visited - all competitively priced in the £1.99 to £2.75 price bracket. Comfortable seating, nice conservatory, and boasting the usual Wetherspoons price offer on food. Something to suit everyone, albeit lacking slightly in tradition. Not to be sniffed at by any means and a cut above the usual Wetherspoons. You can do a lot worse than this if you're waiting for a train.

Totally transformed and unrecognisable inside since it's recent transformation. It's now much bigger at the back and extended into the former car park. It seems more aimed at people who want to eat now instead of drinkers - it's not like being in a pub any more - more like a very modern trendy bar with NO character at all. The quality of the ale is much better than it used to be a few years ago though, and being a Wetherspoons there is a good and frequently changing variety of ales at good prices as well as the usual pints of mass produced slop for the less discerning drinker. If you want a more traditional pub with character as well as fine ales then nip round the corner to the Builders Arms instead - but be prepared to pay more...

The Railway Tavern, New Barnet
Go here at your peril. The new guvnor is a nutter. A face as long as a fiddle. She barrs people at the drop of a hat. Shes been heard to tell customers off for laughing too loud . I was in there Friday just gone and it was a nightmare, only 2 or 3 ales on out of the 8 pumps. Most of them seem to be brewed by the famous brewery' available soon,! It obvious since the refurb all they are interested in is folk sitting eating their microwave meals. Drinkers are definately second class citizens here. Why the guvnor works in the hospitality industry beggars belief. She obviously hates having to desl with the general public. Maybe she should reconsider her career options. Maybe mortuary attendant or tax inspector would be more fun for her!
