The Auld Triangle, Finsbury Park
Formerly the Plimsoll Arms, the Auld Triangle seemingly caters predominantly to a clientele of local alcoholics. You tend to see the same faces drinking here, whether at midday or midnight. But they're a friendly enough bunch, even if some haven't quite grasped the concept of a smoking ban. This boozer is an antidote to the widespread gentrification of pubs - the interior hasn't been updated over the years and there's no food, apart from the occasional informal barbecue (in the street) during Summer. Irish music on some nights, along with incredibly cheap draft Guinness, help make this pub an entertaining throwback. Sadly though, no draft ales are on offer and you should avoid if Arsenal are playing at home, unless you're attending the game.
