Metro

With Spoofers, the ersatz sports bar now dead and buried, a new bar - Metro - has popped up in its place. Ignoring images of free newspapers, first impressions of this two-roomed pub (run by the Faucet Inn group - a name which...

The Herbert Chapman

You may know this pub by one of its myriad of previous names - The Study and the Hobgoblin being the two most recent. Its latest incarnation is, one assumes, a homage to the nearby stadium and this pub is, unsurprisingly, often...

El Comandante

Holloway is a surprisingly decent area for pubs, but it was still nice to discover the El Comandante a few years ago. Formerly the Lord Palmerston, with its original name still visible, clues to its reinvention are subtle: a...

The Coronet

Depressing and amazing at the same time: these are the conflicting emotions you experience when you visit this Wetherspoons pub in an old converted cinema. The wonderful art deco exterior, the sweeping lobby (where the bar now...

Horatia (ex-The Ashburton, ex-The Lord Nelson)

A distinctive presence on the Holloway Road, the Lord Nelson was a key spot for many a touring Irish band. All change now. Where once you had the <a href="http://www.wolfetonesofficialsite.com/menu.htm"...

The Tollington has recently been refurbished in true gastropub style and now has the statutory plasma screens (4 of the blighters), blown-up photos of Holloway in ye olden times (quite interesting, actually), giant refectory...

The Gaff (ex The Old King's Head)

Another pub with an identity crisis. After a refurb at the tail end of 2006, The Old King's Head carved itself out a nice little niche as a rock pub, but that didn't last long and then became an Arsenal heavy football pub...

Drayton Park

In the shadow of Arsenal F.C.'s ground, this place is very handy for a pre-match pint. It's not an Arsenal pub, though; it gets packed with away fans. The friendly landlord told us that it very rarely attracts trouble on match...

We didn't have many nice things to say about the Prince Edward on our last visit - with an intimidating atmosphere it was a most unpleasant time; the e-mails we subsequently received for the review didn't help, either. Still,...

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...

The Enkel Arms

This inexplicably popular boozer is, as my drinking companion pointed out, an extension of the street outside - i.e. noisy, dirty and often full of people you'd prefer not be in close proximity to. It feels rather like a...

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...

There's nothing particularly bad about this pub, but then there's nothing particularly good, either, apart from the fact that it is rather less grubby inside than the exterior would suggest. The Eaglet seems to be your...

The Swimmer at the Grafton Arms

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...

In Greek mythology, Hercules had to perform 12 labours, or seemingly impossible tasks, as a punishment for killing his wife and children. His reward for completing them appears to be the naming of a pub in his honour opposite...
