Prince, The (N22)


With a sketchy past and a temperance monument out front, you might expect the odds to be stacked against this new iteration of The Prince, a handsome street-corner pub in furthest Wood Green. Not a bit of it: the team behind Highgate's Duke have taken to their task with aplomb, producing a bar with much character and good beer (and plenty more to come - watch this space). There are 10 keg and six cask beers, with plenty to interest the ticker. Expect Brew By Numbers, Hammerton, Burning Sky and Bohem, a local Czech-focused brewery whose Victoria is a bitter but extremely drinkable pale lager. Scotch eggs and sausage rolls are the only food - for now.
