The Pineapple

The Pineapple

There are many excellent pubs in Kentish Town (just click around). That the Pineapple won Londonist's public poll by a long way — even though it's hidden from passing trade, down backstreets — speaks volumes. It is a victory well won, as this Victorian gem was almost ripped apart by would-be developers at the start of the century.

The front bar is a joy of glass and brass, with an ever-changing range of beers to choose from. You can then head either left or right of the bar down corridors that link up in a conservatory round the back. Here a compact beer garden offers al fresco options, and is also home to regular beer festivals.

The pub also has a quirky historical note attached to it. For reasons that aren't entirely clear, its rear stables were used to house a giraffe from London Zoo in the 1890s. More here.

Quiz night is Monday.
