That’s why we’ve thoroughly tested and reviewed all the pubs in Arkley. While we didn’t get the chance to personally visit each one, we certainly wish we could have. Here’s the curated list of the finest pubs in Arkley.

Pub name Name Address Description
Arkley (Village Inn & Dining) Barnet Road High Barnet EN5 3EP Former Ember Inns pub : Now a refurbished, up-market, contemporary decorated food orientated premises under the ownership of M&B’s Premium Country Dining Group. Pub currently alternates between London Pride and Doom Bar.
Arkley Golf Club Rowley Green Road High Barnet EN5 3HL Founded in 1909, the bar opens daily from 11.30am.
Black Horse 92, Wood Street High Barnet EN5 4BW Re-opened in November 2012 . Tastefully extended into an open-plan area: although now food orientated the drinker is always made most welcome.
Butchers Arms 148 High Street High Barnet EN5 5XP After major refurbishment , the pub reopened on Friday 29th January 2016 as The BUTCHERS ARMS. There has never been a pub of that name in Barnet, but many, many years ago the site was a butchers shop to the front, with an abattoir behind and below; hence the name change. It has now been tastefully improved with modern seating; a total change from its previous look….check out the sparkling West End style loos!!! Long, narrow, former Wetherspoon’s ‘Moon Under Water’. 1987 conversion but now a Free House offering an ever changing range of four ales; the Landlord is passionate about serving a great pint, which are often sourced from SIBA. It is popular with sport fans as all live football games are shown; they are able to show at least 4 different games in 6 separate areas. Open mic night Sundays and occasional live music on Saturday. May stay open until 1am Friday and Saturday nights, depending on how many are in! Currently not dog friendly.
Chipping Barnet Club 33 High Street High Barnet EN5 5UW The bar is open to members and their guests.
Gate Barnet Road High Barnet EN5 3LA White Gate sign suspended high over road is a long standing landmark-though not high enough to avoid a lorry a few years ago. Note the inscription underneath it. Still serves ales, but emphasis is more on quality meals. Ex-Punch Taverns (ex-Taylor Walker).
King’s Head 84 High Street High Barnet EN5 5SN One bar McMullen house in the shadow of Barnet Church. Live music Saturday. Quiz Thursday.
Lord Nelson 14 West End Lane High Barnet EN5 2SA Friendly one bar pub. Full of bric-a-brac with a fabulous collection of novelty salt and pepper pots. These have been donated by customers returning from holidays. Previous Landlord left behind a bath shower mixer tap which sits on the fireplace!
Olde Mitre Inne, Ye 58 High Street High Barnet EN5 5SJ The oldest coaching inn in Barnet, there has been a pub on this site since 1553. Beams, exposed brickwork, wood panelling and an open fire gives an authentic feel. In 2013 a corridor was opened to allow easy access to further rooms. There is also a well maintained outside courtyard drinking area, which now has a retractable roof and a brick-built chimenea. Several times winner of local CAMRA Branch Pub of the Year. The previous Landlord, Gary was awarded membership of the exclusive Timothy Taylor’s Champion Club for loyalty and tireless dedication to excellent cellermanship. The certificate is no longer on the wall but a good pint of Landlord is still being pulled! He has now left and the pub and it is no longer free of tie. On April 1st 2022 the pub reverted to a Managed house. So expect more GK ales on tap as guest ales.
Olde Monken Holt, Ye 193 High Street High Barnet EN5 5SU Owners have seen sense; after a refit in September 2017, the Monk reclaimed its original name; YE OLDE MONKEN HOLT. Thank You!! They no longer serve food. Historical pub at northern end of the High Street, dating from 1863. Tuesday – quiz. Wednesday – open mic, Friday – DJ. Saturday – live music (blues, jazz, rock and roll). Sunday – Acoustic unplugged session (musicians welcome). Small rear part of pub has leather seats and widescreen TVs. Patio garden. The Battle of Barnet (1471) took place just to the north. GK transferred pub from Managed division to Tenanted@Leased Pub Partners on 4/5/17. Barnet Council granted ACV status in June 2017
Queens Arms Great North Road High Barnet EN5 1AB Next to Barnet Everyman. Large pub showing major sporting events. Darts and pool available. Karaoke last Friday of the Month. Quiz every second Monday of the Month.
Red Lion 31 High Street High Barnet EN5 5UW Re-opened late January 2017 as a Stonehouse Pizza&Carvery, having been a Toby since late 2007. They have 5 hand pumps, all offering Doom Bar. Past names include ‘Dandelion’, ‘The Avenue’, ‘The Dandy Lion’, ‘Felix & Firkin’, ‘Red Lion’, ‘Toby Pub and Carvery’.
Sebright Arms 9 Alston Road High Barnet EN5 4ET A genuine and popular backstreet community local which still retains separate and contrasting public and saloon bars. Recently refurbished throughout…..worth seeking out! The garden area is heated. LBBarnet granted ACV status on 9th March 2016, but McMullen objected, saying that CAMRA were not an eligible organisation, so status was removed from the register on 7th July 2016…..but the local Community group were later successful!! ACV status was granted om 16/1/17
