Near to the very popular Finsbury Park, finding a spot to enjoy a drink amidst the green surroundings and busy streets can be quite the quest. Yet, along a hushed backstreet, an enchanting local pub cloaked in ivy awaits your discovery.

This hidden gem unfolds with a mesmerising back garden adorned with a sweet, multi-tiered treehouse, perfect for a leisurely pint - or a gin and tonic. Inside, the ambience is as varied as the drinks, with multiple bars and a spacious back room. There’s always the option to catch some sports on the telly or take part in a fiercely contested weekly quiz, plus even more entertainment to be enjoyed. Furry friends are welcome during quiet periods, and children before 6pm when it's not packed out. So, The Faltering Fullback can make a great spot for all the family to visit.

The wine list holds its own, and the beer selection, served with practised ease by the friendly bar staff, adds to the overall charm and warmth of this unique establishment. The pub has a vast layout, with distinct rooms catering to various preferences – a serene and verdant garden, a lively front bar, the energetic 'Sin Bin,' and intimate side bars for more private moments.

The entrance bar is a haven for friendly locals, with an instant welcome from the horseshoe bar. The front bar's ceiling is a fascinating collage of sporting memorabilia, vintage antiques, and eclectic oddities. The interior's quirky charm often plays host to a fabulous Irish Trad band, their traditional melodies resonating amid punters chatting, dancing, and enjoying their pints. If you manage to tear yourself away from the vibrant bar scene, you'll chance upon the concealed gem – the enchanting, award-winning beer garden designed like a multi-layered Ewok treehouse.

This magical garden exudes charm, serving as a tranquil oasis for enjoying drinks from the bar and delectable Thai cuisine emerging from the kitchen. Equipped with heaters, it transforms into the ultimate spot for wining and dining throughout the seasons.
