Jolly Anglers, Wood Green
I'm sure the locals who come here love it, though newcomers may find this one slightly overbearing. It didn't go quiet when we walked in, though the disputes over the pool table didn't suggest too jolly a boozer. If the prospect of a video jukebox battling for supremacy with Sky Sports isn't your cup of tea, the beer garden at the back offers a little respite in the warmer weather. As for other entertainments, when we popped in a forthcoming "Dirty Doctors and Naughty nurses" night was promised and on Friday night discos are presided over by Howard Marks (surely not the Howard Marks?). Not that awful a place, though one perhaps best left to the regulars.

Well i started going here (shamefully) back in 1998 roughly and the end of every night since i asked myself the same question why the f&%k did i go !! In 2006 roughly the pub was bought by new owners and got a lick of paint lol !! it was covered in cheap generic posters of silly images like scarface and bottles of jack D , so it looked like a market in Camden (rubbish).The toilets was always propbably the worst in London ! with a DEEP END sign at one end !! nothing has changed at all you still gotta swim your way to the bowl ! basicly a dive ! music is crap! its always the same songs over and over and over !! Everytime i pass by around closing theres always police outside attending the lastest fight !! SHITHOLE !! its a place for man (cocks/cab drivers) to pick up the 'white' girls (wanabes). ill give half a pint out of 5 ! and thats because Jollys helped me get my 10m swimming patch !

This is one of the very few pubs in Wood Green where you can expect to hear music instead of muzak - or nothing. Nowadays they have a 'live' DJ on a Friday night. Pity he plays only one kind of sound all night long, monotonous 'soft' rap. I remember when music was diverse.
