The Shaftesbury Tavern is a local gem. It’s a proper boozer with traditional sentiments and an emphasis placed upon the heritage of the pub and the area it serves. A friendly, relaxed space with really great beer and a considered food offering.

We couldn’t decide between traditional pub grub and our favourite world cuisine. So we threw caution to the wind and opened up our Sabai Thai kitchen that also serves those British classics we can’t get enough of. Whether you’re a beer battered cod with hand cut chips type, or a pad kaprao with jasmine rice sort, we’ve got it down. Our bento style Thai Lunch Boxes, served Monday to Friday, have been a massive hit, as are our Curry and a pint Monday’s and our traditional Sunday Roasts.

Our selection of beer is carefully picked by our bar team and features an impressive rotating lineup that has included the likes of Little Creatures, Beavertown and Five Points Brewery. Furthermore, we take great care to store and serve it properly and with a big, warm smile. Our obsession with serving the perfect pint is borderline obsessive. We won the CAMRA North London Pub of the Season Summer 2015 and this year have been entered into the CAMRA Good Beer Guide. Told you we’re good, modest too. But it doesn’t stop there, we can recommend brilliant white wines and full bodied reds or mix you one of the best vodka tonic’s you’ve ever had.
