Pub name Name Address Description
Bohemia 762-764 High Road North Finchley N12 9QH The Bohemia reopened on Wednesday 11th June 2014 by the London Brewing Company and was voted Local CAMRA Pub of The Year in 2016…some success story!!! The aim was to have 3 of their own beers plus two guests. But they have now set up an on-site-brewery (switching from The Bull in Highgate), so they often concentrate on three to four of their own beers including their Award winning 100 Oyster Stout and various seasonal beers. Latest addition (November 2021) is Hasty, a double-dry hop pale @ 5%. Large range of craft and bottled beers available. Good food served.
Elephant Inn 283 Ballards Lane North Finchley N12 8NR Formerly the Moss Hall Tavern, this fine wood panelled pub with a U-shaped bar split into three distinct drinking areas has a quiet zone free of TV screens. Bar Meals focus on Thai food; there is also an upstairs restaurant. The two guests and the wide range of bottled beers are usually from the Fuller’s portfolio. Darts, dominoes and other pub games available. Huge wooden pergola over wooden furniture on the front patio is where you can watch traffic go by or watch sport on the outside TV. There is now a courtyard at the rear of the pub.
Malt & Hops 891 High Road North Finchley N12 8QA NOTE: real ale not always available.
Tally Ho 749 High Road North Finchley N12 0BP A large four roomed pub at the edge of two roads which culminates with the pub’s outside garden terrace. There is a central bar with a pool table and high seating. This area, plus all other rooms, have a television, not always on and usually silent. Step down on one side to two areas, one with a dart board and the other a comfortable lounge area. The other side of the main bar leads down to seating with a more cosy traditional feel with wooden panelling and the doors to the outside seating. It is a landmark building renovated by Stonegate, prior to which it was a Wetherspoon, in fact the upstairs was originally the Head Office for Tim Martin’s company shortly after he opened his first pub, Marlers Bar in nearby Colney Hatch Lane, Muswell Hill. It was one of 33 pubs sold to Stonegate in September 2016.
