The Library (ex Cedar Rooms, ex Lush Bar)

So, just when we were getting used to this one as the Cedar Rooms, it's been relaunched as The Library. We've done the sums and we reckon this is the sixth name change in eight years. And what is it like now? Well if you were...

The White Swan

One of the earlier examples of the second generation of Wetherspoon pubs, this an above average example of the chain, even it it still only receives a two pint rating. Its helped that the nature of the conversion (from council...

The Junction (ex-BRB@The Junction)

If size is everything, then the Junction must be more than contented with itself. This huge rectangular building certainly packs the punters in on a weekend and has more than enough room to accommodate them all. Despite being...

The Famous Cock

This changed its name from the Cock Tavern several years ago but we're at a loss to explain the reason for its relatively new-found fame. Perhaps its proximity to the tube station, they adjoin each other, means that anyone...

The Bailey

The Bailey seems to have so much going for it, attracting a good mix of clientele and occupying a spot nor far from the tube, but it has never quite ticked all the boxes for us. One of the constant problems we find is that...

Duchess of Kent

Duchess of Kent has obviously found its place in the hearts of the locals and it shows no sign of waning. It attracts all sorts, from families to younger trendies and lads in to watch the footy. It is a little schizophrenic, in...

Wig & Gown (ex Lil'Red)

A couple of years after closing its doors, the Wig & Gown has returned to Holloway Road to replace Lil' Red, which never quite managed to draw the crowds in like its sister 'Big Red' a mile up the road. It is not just the...

A makeover and more upmarket direction - if that's possible - for this tiny style bar just off Upper Street. It's opulently decorated, with gilt mirrors, fresh flowers, funky lampshades and stencilled walls and beautiful people...

Compton Arms

For a long time, we've had the impression that the Compton Arms likes to think is somewhere out in the wilds of Surrey or Sussex and come to that, the locals seem to, too. But that's OK with us. The Compton certainly does look...

For a long time, The Alwyne Castle was a pretty average boozer - mostly serving the nearby estates and Arsenal fans on match days, but it eventually got a makeover and it's been gastrofied for a while now. It was inevitable, we...

Bierodrome was getting progressively tired in its last years and now it's been replaced by Lucky Voice Karaoke Bar - a name which might well be a contradiction in terms to some people. Without making it sound too seedy, they...

Mitre

Heavy boards over all the windows - this Scream pub is well and truly shut, having also notably disappeared off the M&B web site. We'll see if anything resembling a pub returns in any form.
