Pub name Name Address Description
Beaconsfield 357 Green Lanes Finsbury Park N4 1DZ Welcome installation of real ale in one of Harringey’s oldest public houses, still retaining many original features and character. Quiz night Thursdays, pool tournaments Fridays, and DJs on Saturday.
Blackstock 284 Seven Sisters Road Finsbury Park N4 2HY It has just (March 2016) reopened after a makeover. Now with see through windows, stripped floor, bare walls and brickwork, large clear windows, small central assume original bar, one large open room now. Tons of space assume for match days.
Brook Gate 175 Blackstock Road Finsbury Park N4 2JS August 2023 – name changed to Brook Gate – from the Islington Tribune, “Sam Newson, publican since 2022, said: “Being called the Arsenal Tavern, whilst it’s nostalgic, doesn’t bring customers in – it alienates the majority of people. It gets its new name from the nearby waterway where fishermen once caught trout.” For the full article go to
Brownswood 271 Green Lanes Finsbury Park N4 2EX This Victorian pub stands between Stoke Newington, Finsbury Park and Manor House, just a couple of hundred yards from the North West entrance to Clissold Park. It re-opened in early August 2011, and is run by the same family who run the Rose and Crown and Jolly Butchers (both in N16) and the Wrestlers in Highgate. This has seen the introduction of a wide range of cask beers and ciders and an imaginative food offering served from an open kitchen, full details of which can be found on their website.
Finsbury 336 Green Lanes Finsbury Park N4 1BX Another pub to have had a refurbishment, just up from Manor House tube. It has been through many disguises in the past including the infamous Mr Q chain and now features live music or anther live event every evening, there being a stage in the back room. It had a thorough clean up and is darker and moodier than before although during daylight the huge picture windows admit plenty of light and there is ample seating with lots of larger tables for sharing and eating. Lots of exposed brickwork, open pizza kitchen and some books on the window sills to read. Large, pleasant front terrace.
Naturalist 14 Woodberry Down Finsbury Park N4 2GB Opened August 2018 in a new development close to the banks of the Woodberry Down reservoir.
Old Ale Emporium 405 Green Lanes Finsbury Park N4 1EU Small corner-house pub with mix of students and locals. Following a renovation this pub now has a lovely atmosphere. There is a heated covered area for smokers, a polished wood floor, nice furniture, celebrity photos on the wall and a jukebox with 5000 selections.
T.Bird 132 Blackstock Road Finsbury Park N4 2DX Confirmed in Dec 18 as now selling real ale, Jennings Cumberland available on a visit with Redemption Trinity turned around. Only one beer will be on at any time rotating. Handpumps installed in the summer 2018 and took part in the N5 Real Ale Crawl in October although not in N5!
Faltering Fullback 19 Perth Road London N4 3HB Locals’ pub that’s always busy. Three small seating areas with two clustered around the bar and one to the side more like a private room with a friendly atmosphere enhanced by careful use of lighting. The side bar leads into a larger back room with picnic tables, pool table and a Thai kitchen at rear. Food serving times are not known to us – website gives no details.
Old Dairy 1-3 Crouch Hill London N4 4AP March 2023 – GK announce pub will reopen on 29th April 2023 and so it has. Their website mentions 5 cask beers but a visit to the pub in June 2023 revealed 4.
Robin Ale & Cider House 29 Crouch Hill London N4 4AP Reopened at the beginning of October 2023. Food: similar to Southampton Arms – ie pies; scotch eggs, sausage rolls and salt beef sandwiches. 10 keg lines, up to 4 cider lines and up to 6 changing cask beers from independent UK breweries inc a stout or a mild. Its similarity is no coincidence as operator Nick Bailey was previously the manager at the Southampton.
Salisbury 1 Grand Parade, Green Lanes London N4 1JX Well worth visiting for the magnificent Victorian architecture alone, the pub is both Grade II* Listed and included on CAMRA’s National inventory of Pub Interiors of special historic interest with its French Renaissance exteriors and Art Nouveau motifs. At night, its shining dome can be seen from some way away. A selection of good food is served and there is a separate dining room. Later at night that room can feature DJs or occasional live music. Quiz Monday evenings. Poker Night Wednesday.
Stapleton Tavern 2-4 Crouch Hill London N4 4AU Acquired by pub company Antic in 2010, initially tied to Greene King but as of Feb 2023 that no longer seems to be the case – the guests were Fyne Ales Jarl and when that ran out Landlord was put on.
White Lion 125-127 Stroud Green Road London N4 3PX There are two handpumps which greet you on entering but in Feb 2023 only the one in use and when that beer ran out it did not look as if it would be changed immediately that evening. A large and impressive pub with a semi-circular bar and piano and a separate area to the rear which hosts the pub quiz evenings. Also lots of outside seating on the front patio.
