That’s why we’ve thoroughly tested and reviewed all the pubs in East Barnet. 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 East Barnet.

Pub name Name Address Description
Cock Inn Chalk Lane Cockfosters EN4 9HU Set back from the main road,a short walk from Cockfosters station. London Loop passes close by and Trent Park is a few minutes walk away. Renamed Cock Inn when M&B reopened it after a refit in April 2015. Thanfully, due to local pressure, the owners did NOT reopen it as a Miller&Carter; food is an important feature, but we are pleased to see they have retained their real ale offerings!! Well done M&B!
Southgate Hockey Centre Trent Park, Snakes Lane Cockfosters EN4 0PS Southgate Hockey Centre was completed in early 1998 and is located in the grounds of Middlesex University.
Builders Arms 3 Albert Road New Barnet EN4 9SH A popular real ale outlet since the 1970s,hidden away in a side street off the East Barnet Road. The quiet saloon bar is a contrast to the lively public bar which has pool table and TV . There is a garden at the back where you can watch the trains go by. Look out for the imitation blue plaque above the entrance. There is a garden at the rear that now houses a Garden room with eclectic furniture where regular live music events are held. This can also be booked for private functions. Some of the furniture outside is made from recycled pallets. A couple of chairs are made from a few spades, forks and hoes!! Home cooked pub fayre served.
Lord Kitchener 49 East Barnet Road, East New Barnet EN4 8RN Unchanging, ungentrified local pub, opposite Sainsbury’s. Not particularly spacious, entered up 5 steps. Old-fashioned decor including pictures of Kitchener. Still has real ale, eg McMullen’s AK. Thursday is Quiz night. Sky Tv for sports. Dart board. Small front terrace raised above the pavement to watch the buses go by. Internal and external repaint in November 2023 and external sign appears to read “Lord Kitch”.
Railway Bell 13 East Barnet Road New Barnet EN4 8RR A rarity for Wetherspoon in that this wasn’t previously a shop or showroom. It had a massive refit in 2013 and is a very bright pub where families are well catered for. The Manager is really keen on her beer and 10 ales are always available in tiptop condition. Local London brews often feature. The car park has gone, replaced by a larger garden area; now segregated to a “smoking” and a “no smoking” area; the latter having pretend grass.
Railway Tavern 3 East Barnet Road New Barnet EN4 8RR Live music Saturday, Quiz Sunday, Sports TV, Home cooked food, children welcome.
