North London’s real ale fans should celebrate the reopening of this tastefully refurbished olde-worlde Highgate landmark. With Dan Fox (formerly of the White Horse, Parsons Green) in charge, it now comes complete with its own microbrewery. At £2.80 a pint, the Beer Street bitter – a reference to the 1751 Hogarth print depicting the evils of booze – is relatively mild compared to many modern high-alcohol ales. Over a dozen draughts might typically include Jaipur IPA or Tottenham’s Redemption Trinity, & there are plenty of arcane brews to investigate – check out the Halloween pumpkin beer. If bottled brews are your bag, look for the likes of Torpedo or Vital Spark from Scotland’s Fyne Ales. Food might range from beer-battered cod to pulled pork & carbonnade of beef.
