We are not in a central London/centre of a main town so think we need a different approach. Standing at the bar here used to be allowed - it is a large bar... More

Stopping off for lunch while in the area, this proved a good choice. On a Monday lunchtime it was fairly quiet with plenty of choice of places to sit and i was served straightaway. No complaints at all re my cheese and tomato toastie, chips and garlic bread. A nice coffee rounded off a pleasant lunch. As is common with... More

The best and widest ale selection for miles which are only approx £2.50 a pint (!) and cheap and filling freshly cooked food is available all day also.

Every summer we have a mini break in Palmers Green N13 and the Alfred Herring is our stop for breakfast and dinners. The food is always fresh and very nice presented. Reasonable prices. It's a large pub so there is room for all. Quite a laid back area where you can sit outside and watch the world go by. There... More
