      It is called THE FLASK. It is located in the lovely village of Highgate which is considered the most old world feeling in london. The building is very old and has warmth and charm to boot. The ceiling is low and the 1300 square foot space is divided into about five different oddly shaped rooms with perfect lighting. This was my favorite pub in London. It is well worth the trip ecspecailly because you can plan it to precede a walk through hampstead heath and dinner at Jin Kichi for sushi in hampstead.

        I find this site invaluable when I am looking for a decent pub in any part of London


        Their take on things is not always the same as mine ( I think it is aimed at a slightly younger crowd ) but it is still a very good resource for visitors and locals alike

          It's a little bit broad of a question, but if you're looking for a cute and interesting pub that might be what you imagine a pub to be like (nooks and crannies), check out the Windsor Castle in Notting Hill... http://www.timeout.com/london/bars/re...

            the wenlock arms is fantastic.

            holloway (eburne road): the swimmer at the grafton arms
            central (st.giles high street): the angel
            east (curtain road): the barley mow
            east (paul st): the fox
            north (newington green road): the alma

                My two favourites in town are

                The Wenlock Arms

                it is not to everyone's taste as it is a bit, er, grubby. However it consistently wins the CAMRA " Pub of the Year Award" and is well worth a visit

                In Clerkenwell, I like The Jerusalem Tavern ( Britton st - I think ) which serves St Peter's organic ales.

                The majority of the pubs in the West End are to be avoided, I think being no more than delivery systems for expensive pissy larger to kids.

                Try to head for the neighbourhoods. There are excellent pubs in Hampstead, Putney, Richmond etc etc

                it is also worth perusing a copy of The Good Beer Guide in a local bookshop for help too
