The Pub summed up in a few words

Fun relaxed easy going pub serving great pub grub and a very wide range of ales, beers and lagers, wines and spirits.

Food is served all day every day untill 10pm bar Monday's - the Chef has to have at least one day off!

Kids are welcome and we have highchairs for the wee ones

We attract a mixed crowd of chilled fun people who just enjoy a nice night out with a few good drinks.

Every Tuesday we have a free quiz night hosted by the jovial JB - emphasis is on fun rather than brain power! Starts at 9pm unless there's a major football match on the telly in which case it starts straight after.

Every Saturday we have DJ's playing Ska, House, Rare Groove and Funk. Check the website for details.

Once a fortnight the Tony Burns Quartet do their Jazz stuff live and free on a Sunday normally starting around 8ish


This weekend we will be playing mostly HOUSE MUSIC !

Starting Friday with Howard playing smooth Lounge tunes and some oldies

Saturday we have Carlito & The Chef - standing in for TROLLYED - playing Classics and some unusualness.

so if yer stuck for summat to do round Archway & Highgate -- come and shake yer booty with us !

A Monday mornin' Poem

Wake up in the mornin’ – And when I’m finished yawnin’
Coffee is the kick-start – As the day is dawnin’
Bravely leave the inside – Step into the outside
Workin’ on the outside – Payin’ for the inside
Watchin’ people walkin’ – Listen to them talkin’
I listen when I’m walkin’ – Watchin’ all the talkin’
Keep up, Catch up – Did ya see… last night?
Upgrade, Update, 80 million terabyte.
If anybody’s got one - everybody gets one,
Now, everybody’s got one – It’s time for a new one
Twice as good – Half the price
Double the speed – Aesthetically nice...
Bar code – Brand name – Designer daydream
Gigabyte – Blue Light – Wireless Ice-cream
Over-priced nonsense sits upon the shelf
Genetically modified – swap wealth for health?

This is the entrance to the bowells of hell - just near us

Everyday - I watch Lemmings get off the bus and walk comfortably in the jaws of doom which clearly awaits.

Yet by some miracle - they emerge the other side of the road - unharmed by the graffiti and empty fag packets - not even threatened by the echo's of their heels..

But its one of those must visit sites in London - and we are the nearest Pub - so pop down, get scared of nothing and the pop in for a great selection of drinky-poos..

I spotted this today in the Guardian - Any Thoughts ??

If that means gettin' on the dole and playing xbox - hmm

or does it mean physics is wrong ?

or is the guardian missing the point ??

or is it me missing the guardians point ???

Or is it something else - answers on a postcard to the pub (address on website)

Long live the king

Blimey - someone got a cat stuck in a tree opposite the pub !

We counted 18 vehicles in attendance for this "emergency"
seems someone dumped some illicit "unknown" contents in a container.

thank god there wasn't a fire...

We told everyone there was a cat stuck up a tree !!

Subversive marketing for an event @ The Charlotte Despard at the end of the month

if you have a funky new phone that has a barcode scanner - start by scanning this - and visit the poster.

QR Codes:

A QR Code is a matrix code (or two-dimensional bar code) created by Japanese corporation Denso-Wave in 1994. The "QR" is derived from "Quick Response", as the creator intended the code to allow its contents to be decoded at high speed.
