Duke's Head, The

The Duke's Head

Like Blackheath in the South, Highgate doesn't really feel like modern London; you half expect to see trams trundling by as you stare out of the Duke's Head's window at the red phone box and book shop across the street. The beer on offer here, though, is bang up to date: expect to find Brodie's, The Kernel, Camden Town, Bristol Beer Factory, Magic Rock and plenty more besides. Worthy of note are the lovely pictures of the pub and the area in times gone by that adorn the modishly pastille-grey walls.
