Pub name Name Address Description
Beaufort 2 Heritage Avenue Colindale NW9 5AA Newly created (April 2008), upmarket Wells and Young’s pub/diner on the site of former RAF camp near RAF Museum. Mixture of traditional and contemporary styled areas, patio at front and side. Function room available. Food served 11.30-10 Mon-Thu; 10-10 Fri/Sat; 12-9 Sun.
Chandos Arms 31 Colindale Avenue Colindale NW9 5DS Previously known as NEW CHANDOS ; it closed in 2012 but has now had a great refit and a new name. Re-opened in March 2013 to take advantage of the surge of new homes in the Colindale area. Member recently advised it now features a “great real log fire!” The pub is run by one of the members of the singig group Wilde Roses with Anna Tan Real ale availability reduced to 1 handpump.
Moon Under Water 10 Varley Parade, Edgware Road Colindale NW9 6RR A 1990 Wetherspoon’s conversion of a Woolworth store, this is gem of a find in a rather barren area for real ale. The friendly manager likes to promote London brewers and ales from the many handpumps are well maintained. The rear is set out for dining but there is a pub feel in the front with alcove seating. The silent TVs either show news broadcasts or racing which keeps the local clientele happy! For those of you interested, they serve four craft beers on keg; Shipyard, Devil’s Backbone plus two guests. They also showcase a craft beer fridge with many bottles from London breweries.
J.J. Moon’s 551-553 Kingsbury Road London NW9 9EL An early (1988) Wetherspoon’s shop conversion, with TV screens and a children’s certificate (until 20.00). A large, one-room establishment, low ceilings, lots of wood panelling and a raised section at the rear; a rare outlet for real ale in this part of outer London. The pub is pursuing a more adventurous guest beer policy which, in 2013, led to it becoming an accredited member of CAMRA’s LocAle scheme.
