This grand old Fuller's house is the only place worth drinking along this particularly long, straight stretch of Finchleydom. Its a sprawling old corner house, though such is the popularity (or dearth of competition) that all those tables are full on a Friday or Saturday.
No surprises with the ale, which is a staunchly Fuller's selection. The Thai kitchen and upstairs dining area add a note of novelty to what is otherwise a typical outlet for the brewery.
This is a comfortable, cosy pub with plenty of banquettes and a roaring fire in winter. Yeah, we'd be quite happy if this were our local.
On Facebook. On Twitter as @TheElephantInn. Quiz night is Monday.
