Dusk Till Dawn (ex-The Archway Tavern)

Under new management and with a change of name, this one's now promoting itself as a live music venue (though given its <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/From_Dusk_till_Dawn"...

The Lion

Another of the Irish pubs clustered around Archway tube. This one differs from most of them by having windows you can actually see out of. As such, nervous types looking for a pub to meet in in the area might well plump for...

Mother Red Cap

Curtains drawn, door shut. From the outside it's easy to assume the worst, lump this one in with Holloway's hardcore Irish boozers and walk past. Fear not though, step inside and you'll be hit by a glorious pub interior: wall...

The Magnet

A little locals boozer that's had a plush makeover, though it's still the sort of pub that puts Teletext on for the Racing results. One for the locals, albeit one with a rather more welcoming air than the nearby pubs on the...

St. John's Tavern

St. John's is undergoing a refurbishment at the moment - on the outside, at least. Apparently it's still open under all that scaffolding - we'll go back soon and let you know what it's like.

Oak & pastor

After a big refurbishment we’ve just seen that this pub has reopened as the upmarket-sounding Oak & Pastor. Certainly all traces of the Drum and Monkey have been entirely removed. Some beautiful tiling advertising...

The Charlotte Despard (ex-The Settle Inn)

Pubs named after early twentieth century female social campaigners are few and far between, so this one's recent(ish) relaunch and renaming has certainly marked it out. We're not sure if the <a...

The Old Crown

Our two visits here in ten years have both been truly awful, but we've spied the fact there has been a paint job and a change of emphasis. It doesn't bode well though, with some of the pub renamed to T.O.C and what appears to...

Whittington & Cat

Perched halfway up the hill to Highgate, the Whittington Cat, not to be confused with the nearby Whittington Stone, is a jolly, traditional Irish pub. Unlike many of the other Irish pubs in the area, it doesn't make a big deal...

The Hideaway

The previous incarnation of the Star was a particularly unwelcoming boozer, but a change of ownership a couple of years back gave the place a new lease of life. Even better, the change hasn't transformed it into a...

Lord Palmerston

This is a full-on gastropub, but one that blends in seamlessly with the large Victorian houses of the area. This was an early convert of the gastro cause, so no surprises to see the spartan look of lots of natural light and...

Angel Inn

The Angel Inn is a pleasant 1930's panelled suburban pub interior that's been given a not-too-harsh modern stripped-out treatment - olde mismatched tables and brown leather sofas were very much in evidence. It sports a good...

Whilst it can be easy to criticise gastropubs, when the emphasis is still on the pub rather than the gastro they're often hard to fault - and the Swimmer is a prime example of when it does work. A smart and professional...
