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.

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.
