I’m the first customer through the door at noon following a long circuit of Highgate and Hampstead on foot. I don’t have the place to myself for long though.

West by Three - DDH #1 Enigma & Simcoe 4.80ExcellentCloudy pale gold. Soft, fruity flavours. Pineapple. The novelty of these things is starting to ware off.
Wander Beyond - Peak3.80AcceptableA hazy-golden, soft Pale Ale that does not taste very fresh.

My first time here – excellent place. They have an especially good cask beer selection for the duration of the London Beer City week and it looks as if it is proving popular.

Evening latish. Knew I'd find a nightcap beer here. Annoying to have brazen e-ciggers puffing at the bar.

The pub is found in Highgate, Greater London, N6 5JG.

In Highgate High Street, once a coaching inn with a rear courtyard re-opened as a narrow, but deep, specialist beer and cider house. Impressive array of 10 handpumps. Often a large cider flagon on the bar counter top and 10 keg taps on the bar back.

We have visited this pub 4 times, seen 24 different beers and tried 7 of them.
