Are there any good pubs in Cricklewood?

Being Londoners ourselves, at Cozee, we hold a strong bond with our regular visits to the local pub every week. Why should your experience be any different in your new home? That’s why we’ve thoroughly tested and reviewed all the pubs in Cricklewood. 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 Cricklewood.

Pub name Name Address Description
Brondesbury Sports Club 5A Harman Drive Cricklewood NW2 2EB The club has 7 artificial grass tennis courts, 2 heated squash courts, and a well-tendered cricket pitch.
Beaten Docket 50-56 Cricklewood Broadway London NW2 3ET The pub is split into three areas with the furthest area to the right slightly more food dominated, to the left there are are series of booths providing more intimate drinking areas as well as two TVs, on silent mode with either sport or rolling news. In summer, some of the doors/windows open more fully to create a pleasant atmosphere around the tables to the front. There is outside seating on the road all year round, which is well used by smokers. Named after a losing betting ticket and there are many framed prints reflecting the racing link. Also look out for the old photos of Cricklewood.
Beer & Burger Store 88 Walm Lane London NW2 4QY Converted to pub use in 1996 as one of McGowan’s Irish bars which installed handpumps to sell real ale, although it did not last. In winter 2016 became the area’s first craft beer bar offering up to 20 keg beers (many from London) and a very large bottled selection, many of which are bottle conditioned. It once stocked a real cider in the form of a bag in the box in the fridge – but that seems to have gone.
