After a wander around Highgate Cemetery, we stopped here for some food and drink. It had been recommended to me previously and did not disappoint. I've been to a few pubs in the Highgate area and this is by far my favorite. The beer selection really deserves a shout out! There are some standards on tap, but try one of the ones that don't sound familiar. I had a pint of lager called Bragging Rights that was absolutely delicious. The bartender offered to let me sample a couple before ordering and seemed more than happy to do so. The staff all around was great.
On a Saturday afternoon, the place was absolutely bustling. We had some food which was also really delicious. While we didn't have a full breakfast, someone nearby did and that looked amazing, as well. I would definitely stop back in here next time I'm up that end of the hill.
This Pub has a wonderful charm about it on a cold wintery night in North London.
Friendly engaging bar staff always make for a welcoming introduction. Beer was good, location was very interesting, cool 70s music, bad bad bad bad bad burger. Sack the chef that made it. Once the spoiler is gone, this place will be a great evening haunt..
I cycled here. Up a hill. I almost died. It was a big hill. I ate chips. I played card games. I then rolled all the way down that hill home.... Weeeeeeeeeee
This pub is awesome. In the area it's one of the only places with a decent food menu on a Sunday and a great Bloody Mary. It's not cheap but this whole area is quite expensive so it keeps up appearances and you'll hear a muddle of American and posh British accents chatting away on the average weekend.
Eating here I can see why they call it a "gastropub". It's normal pub food, done properly. There is no microwave involved and lots of fresh veg with homemade sauces. It's a winner for Sunday lunch.
As we were virtually snowed in at the top of the hill this weekend there was nothing else for it, but to go to the pub for the afternoon. The Angel Inn is one of my favourites out of the many great pubs to choose from in Highgate (lucky me) so we headed over.
It's a lovely, cosy place, with original 1930's wood paneling and gorgeous open fires mixed with trendy couches and tasseled lampshades hanging over the bar. The atmosphere is very relaxed and friendly, and during the day you will find anyone from 20-somethings to families with babies and dogs all enjoying a drink. The music is usually good too (think Mumford and Sons and old classics such as Portishead) creating a nice, chilled out ambience. Whilst in the evening it becomes more bar-like and large groups reserve tables for various celebrations.
For me though, the food is the main attraction, and if you like pub food you will not be disappointed. Everything here is served up in hearty and delicious portions, from "Cumberland Sausages and Mash" to "Pork Belly, Sauteed Leeks and Bacon Mash", it's all scrumptious and served promptly with a smile.
The bar men are very friendly and polite too so if you add them to amazing food, great drinks (this is one of the only places I can find who sell bottled raspberry beer) and a great venue, it certainly deserves the title of a fantastic local.
Top Tip: The Sunday Roast is to die for.
Okay, I'll go first, thanks.
Honestly we were only here for a quick heart warmer beverage before my mates wedding down the street at the Catholic Church.
quality ales and it was quite busy on a saturday for lunch time. The food looked really really good and so I would have loved to have had a nibble, but that wasn't in the cards.
I loved the feeling and atmosphere in here and especially the fireplace which was throwing some decent heat into the place.
Much like an Angel this place is a lifesaver. There's free WIFI, which is good if you are on business travel and you don't want be eaten alive by roaming fees. Couches by the fire place allow for a cozy experience. Peroni on tap is just simply the icing on the cake.
We liked it so much we had a return trip for brunch on Saturday. Theirs is a modern take on the traditional English breakfast, complete with black pudding (which I may have reconsidered eating if I new what was in it beforehand :)
Good pub with a good selection of ales and beers. Right in the middle of Highgate Village. Interior is quite nice with some sofas and comfy chairs.
For me it just lacks a bit the feel of being a traditional pub. I would give it more stars, but compared to other options (e.g. The Flask) it feels a bit like a chain pub if you know what I mean.
Had a great lunch here today on our way to Highgate Cemetery. Server was Jess and he was friendly, helpful, and efficient.
In the heart of Highgate Village this is half bar half pub. Friendly staff who make an effort to make you feel comfortable. And the best bit? Minty from Eastender's fave haunt.
Cracking pub, excellent ale and no nonsense quality food.
Great pub in Highgate. The manager was fantastic, very attendant and even brought my partner's daughter's glass of coke over to the table for us! He also told me that they do not have a minimum charge to use your card at the bar so no having to buy a load of crisps to bump your spend up to a tenner.
I have only eaten the whitebait which was really tasty but the food here looks great and I will hopefully get round to popping in for dinner very soon!
Really nice place, chillaxed, yummy food especially the fish and chips and sticky toffe oudding. But just don't go for the house red and it is rather rough
Was the best pub in highgate before they got rid of oliver. Now is turning more corporate, leaning away from the traditional pub. However they have fantasic food, staff, great selection of drinks and a great quiz nite on wednesdays. Still up there with the top boozers in the area and well worth a visit.
