The citizens of Crouch End are rightly proud of this large, handsome gastropub. Fancy chandeliers, posh wallpaper & a bar displaying legions of honey-coloured log slices decorate the interior, while to the side there’s a secluded garden. It won’t cost you the earth to sample the modern European food – perhaps crispy risotto & black olive cakes with ‘absolutely lovely’ tomato & mushroom sauce; baked cod fillet with white bean & bacon stew & herb aïoli; & lemon posset with berry compote & shortbread. To accompany, there’s a good spread of wines with helpful tasting notes. For under a fiver, nippers can nibble on Aberdeen Angus beef burgers or fresh fish pieces in batter, followed by ice cream. There’s a quiz on Tuesdays, jazz on Thursdays & DJs at the weekend. Alternatively, come on Wednesday for the half-price cocktails.
