Three Compasses, Edmonton
our final review
posted by redcat on 1/2/2005
Well, what can I say that gives this pub justice? Sandwiched between an industrial park and a council estate, this is definitely a locals' pub, not only in geographical terms, but on the welcome you receive. It's the only pub I know where the drinkers give you suspicious looks when you walk past! A small, narrow affair, it had a couple of children running around on my visit and according to the fluorescent star-shaped signs, they have a disco and serve food. I didn't feel sufficiently confident verify the reliability of either. Walking by on other occasions, I notice after 11pm, the blinds are drawn and the doors locked, but the lights and music go on for a lot longer. It's all fine if you live in the area and are on first name terms with the landlord, but everyone else has no need to ever come here.
Was up for sale, recieved no interest and was then burnt to the ground, by 'someone'. Mmmm. Land was sold, pub demolished and now its a bunch of ugly flats called 'Compass Point'

Queen Street, Edmonton, London, N17 8EJ
From White Hart Lane train station turn left and walk down White Hart Lane. It quickly does a sharp right (it looks like a separate road) but keep following round until you get to Queen Street, just past Middlesex University. It's 2 minutes on the right down Queen Street.
