Pubs in the region

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 New Southgate. 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 New Southgate.

Pub name Name Address Description
Ranelagh 82 Bounds Green Road Bounds Green N11 2EU Impressive looking pub with a large, pleasant garden with a traditional wood-panelled interior, open fire in winter months. The beers available can change, has also had Adnams Broadside, Greene King IPA, Timothy Taylor Landlord, Wychwood Left Back. Occasional tap takeovers which seems to focus on “craft keg” beers, see their website for details and for their menus.
Springfield Tavern 133 Bounds Green Road London N11 2PP The newly refurbished Springfield Bar & Grill opened on September 27th 2013 but it now trades as The Springfield Tavern. It’s a great local for everybody in the Bounds Green area, showing all major live sports action and with live music at weekends – see their social media channels for details. It also has a Thai food offering – see website for full details. The new layout and decor is very impressive. It has lots of comfortable seating, its warm, clean and fresh.
Arnos Arms 338 Bowes Road New Southgate N11 1AN Emerging from Arnos Grove tube station, turn left and you can’t miss it. Formerly a Harvester, it is now being operated by Dan Fox, late of the Bull in Highgate, then the Bohemia /London Brewing Company. As well as ever-changing cask beers, prominently on display as you enter, there are eight craft kegs. However, they may only have one cask beer on offer to maintain standards. It is a large impressive building with seating outside on the front terrace. Inside it has been imaginatively refurbished, retaining a dining area to the left as you enter. But there is ample space for those that just want to enjoy a beer or two. Which is now something that can be heartily recommended. Bar billiards, table football, pin ball machine and traditional board games will keep all entertained, young and old! The three guest beers on opening night in late June 2017 were Redemption Trinity, Windsor&Eton Parklife and Thornbridge Wild Swan. But by mid June 2019, there was often only one real ale on offer.
