Nice pub with a good selection of cask beers and ciders, good ambiance (there was a woman playing the piano when I visited, also they played vinyls) and really good prices. The only downside was one waiter that was rude.

A beer institution. You can say that ’times haves moved on’ and the Southampton Arms’ focus on cask is a trifle outdated, and in some respects you may have a point. But their signature siren call of ’Ale Cider Meat’ is deliciously accurate if you discount the 2 keg taps and the veggie Scotch Eggs. The atmosphere is brilliant, but it’s one of those narrow pubs where you can’t move if it’s crowded. I counted 18 handpulls: 11 beers and 7 ciders. They seem to be fond of certain Brewers here, with Dark Star and Howling Hops as standouts. Mostly sessionable and all delicious. I noticed that many of the other punters were drinking cider; I’m no expert on the availability of cider in London (and coming from the shires it isn’t in short supply), but perhaps the cider choice/condition is a big draw.

An easy walk east of Gospel Oak railway station, its a few doors away from the road junction you’ll come, on Highgate Road next to a railway bridge. It has a very small front, and the pub itself never gets wider than this - as such inside you have a long thin bar against one inner wall, with small chair and tables lining the one opposite and at its front. There is an atmospheric urban courtyard area at the back which certainly helps increase capacity. Despite the lack of space there’s no lack of cask ales, with a very long row of regular and special ales from a wide range of microbreweries. It’s arguably the best place for cask choices in the area. A few keg options can be found on the bar as well. Traditional in style, with a welcome ambiance from its worn fixtures and fittings.

Uno dei pub che piu mi è piaciuto a londra con una folla molto eterogenea , il bello di questo posto è che per venire qui bisogna uscire dai soliti giri turistici, bella selezione di classiche ales e cidri senza troppi fronzoli e senza troppi stili rappresentati , qui però si respira l’aria da pub genuino .. Cibo più che altro per placare la fame con pork pies e simili, servizio veloce e piu gentile che in altri posti

Fairly small and long old school bar with a run down wooden feel. It’s fairly popular and lively with a great selection of casks featuring local and other UK breweries. Worth going there early as it gets pretty busy later in the evenings.

Kind of a "rustic" pub, with a used feel, propably not for everyones taste, but I really liked it. There’s also a nice courtyard in the back. Unfortunately located quite far-off (near Hampstead Heath), but definitely worth the trip.

The lowest prices I’ve experienced in a London craft beer bar! Tap list isn’t the most extensive, but they had some really interesting stuff, for example an extended selection from Howling Hops. Maybe the only downisde is that they serve all beers in dimpled mugs, but then this fits very well into the down-to-earth atmosphere of this place.

Overall an authentic experience and very good, local beer, definitely recommended.

Love this place, nice ambiance inside and outside good mix of younger and older people, amazing mix of ales and ciders, and you can even suggest beers for them to bring in.
