The first question we get asked by people walking through our doors is “So, what are you?” Seems like an unusual question when walking into a pub, but that sums us up really. We’re a pub. But we’re a bit different. Honouring the history of the building as an ex-British Legion social club, and community hall, Earl Haig Hall was reopened in 2013 to give the folk of Crouch End, and beyond something different from their local pub.
Located just off the hustle and bustle of Broadway Parade on sleepy Elder Avenue, we place a strong emphasis on real ale, boasting 6 hand pumps, serving a wide range of local and national beers, as well as fine spirits and wines. Our kitchen, which is open Tuesday to Sunday, offers a unique menu of freshly cooked and locally sourced food both during the week and for our famous Sunday Roasts, as well as a varied selection of freshly prepared bar snacks.
Every night at the Earl Haig Hall is different. We have hosted some special music events across the years alongside local DJ heros, Harry’s Pub Quiz on Tuesdays, baby and toddler groups, yoga, tai chi, live comedy, movie screenings, life drawing classes, fitness groups, dance lessons, choirs, language classes, live theatre and cabaret, there certainly is something for everyone. On Sundays, kick back with the family and let our chefs do all the hard work for you. Enjoy our famous Sunday Roasts and keep the kids entertained with our vintage football table, vintage pinball machine and selection of board games. Don’t forget to take a peek at our colourful, creative and sun catching beer garden out back!
Previous guests include….Andy Smith (Portishead), Bad Manners, Cam Cole, Howard Marks, Jack Hollywood, Jack Tyson Charles, King Salami & The Cumberland 3, Mirror Signal, Son of Dave, TJ Johnson Band, The Drink and many more. We have also hosted Festivals such as The London Blues Festival, The UP Festival, Oxjam Festival and The End Festival.
We have a large function room and a number of cosy corners perfect for all events, celebrations and party bookings. Please call us or ask a friendly member of the team for more details.
Some have said we are a setting to rival your homely vintage Christmas cards. Why not pop in and see for yourself?
