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 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...

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.

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 Landseer

The Landseer is a big airy gastropub on a quiet corner in Holloway. It feels like a place more for eating than drinking, although most of its clientele was to be found drinking on the tables outside during our visit, enjoying...

Nambucca

Nambucca, sitting on a fairly unremarkable stretch of Holloway Road, appears at first glance to lack many distinctive features itself. It is, though, not the decor which attracts the punters but the variety and quality of music...

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 Hideaway

Tufnell Park and Archway don't immediately spring to mind as homes for live music, but consider the Irish acts in the Holloway Road's pubs, the rock revivalism of the Dirty Water Club and the indie bands in the Archway Tavern....

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...

The exterior of The Quays is certainly interesting. Views through the windows are blocked by shelves of old bottles, while uplighters illuminate the blue walls in a tacky alternating spectrum of colour. The interior is also...

North Nineteen

North Nineteen is a charming, refurbished pub on the back streets off the Holloway Road. The post-war building is attractive enough and the decor considerate to the building: the two separate bars remain, while a back area with...

Tufnell Park Tavern

This place has been through more than a few incarnations in recent years. We've attended comedy nights here and as Progress it used to be more of a bar/club, offering post-match fizzy beer and fisticuffs to players from the...

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...

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...

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...
