Pubs

As Londoners, we cherish our local pubs. Tufnell Park has some great go-to spots. From smaller, more family run chains to larger pubs like WeatherSpoons, there is a pub for everyone in the area.

Pub name Name Address Description
Brendan the Navigator 90 Highgate Hill London N19 5NQ One cask beer on offer, rotating between the two listed. We will see if trade recovers sufficiently for this to happen – “Our intention is to add up to an additional 2 quality cask products on a rotating basis from October of this year.” However on a walk-by in June 2023 no cask could be seen through the windows.
Landseer Arms 37 Landseer Road London N19 4JU December 2021 – Four real ales on at time of visit. £7 lunch deals served 12pm-4pm weekdays along with main food menu. Sunday roasts offered. Spacious outdoor seating area, which is the perfect place to enjoy a drink on a Summer’s evening.
Shaftesbury Tavern 534 Hornsey Road London N19 3QN May 2022 – we understand that Remarkable Pubs are ending their trade arrangement with Fuller’s and shifting to Shepherd Neame. However, in this pub that seems to relate mostly to keg products not cask – so they can shop around for cask beer which means the range can vary week by week. On 04/02/23 the cask was Pumphouse Pale, Purity Ubu, and a 2.7% session ale from Small Beer.
St John’s Tavern 91 Junction Road London N19 5QU 26/07/23 – Pub closed for refurbishment…. reopened 6th September with three cask beers as listed. Pre refurb Keg beers including Orbit, Brew by Numbers etc.
Star 47 Chester Road London N19 5DF Aug 2023 – pre-covid this pub sold up to 4 cask beers but that range has now been significantly reduced. Our reported comments, “2 pumps but only one on. TT Landlord. It will be replaced when it runs out. Intention of keeping at least one on.” So expect to find Landlord but at times there might be a replacement beer.
