  1. The Bull, Highgate

    My first attempt at going to The Bull didn't go well. I'd been wandering around trying to find a pub that wasn't packed on a Sunday afternoon and I found one; it was The Bull. It was deserted; I wasn't even sure it was open. I cautiously approached the doors and peered in, seeing fridges filled with bottles of Becks and a couple of dead-eyed staff staring out, their blank stares seemingly willing me to come in and give their day and their lives some meaning. The place had all the charm of a branch of Foxtons, and if things are so bad that you're looking to me to give the place some life then frankly the battle is already lost.

  2. The Victoria, Highgate

    The Victoria in Highgate is a nice little gastropub that probably goes overlooked as it's up the north end of the village, past plenty of other notable pubs such as The Red Lion and Sun, and The Bull. It can lack atmosphere during the week but is worth checking out for the food.
