Ye Olde White Bear, Hampstead

Decent enough restaurant - very tasty well-prepared food. Starters in the 8 range, mains around 15. And a long wine list to go with it. The dirty little secret is that beer is also available, including a couple of unsurprising real ales. I say "dirty little secret" because their website/menus do not mention beer at all. If a pub is what you are looking for, or indeed a beer in the evening, this is not the place to go. However if you are looking for a nice sea bass and a glass of dessert wine to calm your screaming toddler (they do love the sweet wine, darling little things), by all means pay a visit.

The Toll Gate, Hornsey

I have been a defender of the Toll Gate in the past, always found it an enjoyable place to drink, well representative of the local community (including some obnoxious drunks, but also plenty of friendly locals). But definitely seems to have had a change in management in the past few months - and things have slipped dramatically. A lot of new staff who don't seem to have a clue, frustrated customers waiting for a long time, few ales on draught despite pump clips that appear otherwise ("oh, it's just gone off"), short pints, etc. A couple of times lately I've walked in, waited at the bar for a bit, then gone elsewhere to satisfy my thirst. Sad really, I hope things improve soon... at the moment I actually prefer Spouter's Corner if I'm in the mood for a local-ish Wetherspoon
