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 serve a handpicked range of beers, wines and spirits from our favourite local and international independent breweries, which you can drink whilst perched in our beautiful terrace and beer garden, or whilst swinging from the chandeliers in our marble floored backroom, which is also available for private hire.
We couldn’t decide between traditional pub grub and our favourite world cuisine. So we threw caution to the wind and opened up a 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 Burger Monday’s and our traditional Sunday Roasts. Not one to miss out on festive fun, we’re also serving up seasonal dishes on our Christmas menu, including a roast topside of beef, turkey with Cumberland sausages wrapped in bacon and traditional nut roast, served up with yorkshires, garlic potatoes and roasted roots.
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.
