The Bar & Restaurant Edit – A very manly choice this week from our amazing photographer, Nick Ellis. He is recommending the John Baird pub in Muswell Hill which he finds very friendly and cosy plus the owner, Keith, is an Arsenal fan so obviously is to be trusted to make a fabulous selection of Real Ales.
In fact, it is the Real Ale on tap which is the star of the show for Nick. The choice is constantly evolving and from time to time Keith even organises a Real Ale Festival. The pub has a Thai restaurant, The Black Orchid, attached to it which Nick thinks is appreciated by local people but as he isn’t fond of that type of food he can’t give a personal thumbs up.
However, a packet of crisps or two in the summer sunshine of the Beer Garden is a pleasure he can endorse.
Of course, the John Baird is just opposite our new office on Fortis Green Road, so if we can’t find him at work we will know where to look!
