Music nights Thursdays and Sundays. Converted from a grim, 1970s bunker of a pub: now much more welcoming. Refurbished again 2019 and under independent management.
Masons Arms 665 Harrow Road London NW10 5NU This pub was given a beautiful revamp. It has retained lots of the original features and the introduction of atmospheric lighting and chandeliers lend it a look of glamour. The staff are all very friendly.
