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.

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.
