The Southampton Arms Ale and Cider House, the only dedicated ale and cider house in london to sell only beer and cider from small, independent UK breweries.
The beer selection is now well noted. But we're also fans of the tiny beer yard - get the right seat, and the right beer, and you're sitting in a classic northern pub...in Kentish Town.
Absolutely top-notch perfect. Something like ten real ales on tap, all locally sourced. Old-school record player, outdoor toilets and an ancient chap playing the piano (very well). Highly recommended.
Easily one of the best pubs in London; countless ales, ciders and the best mustard I've ever tasted.
You know you're on to a winner from the ALE CIDER MEAT sign. They sell Seabrook's Crisps and there's a panther in the beer garden.
For those that stumble across it, they’ll quickly realise that this place likes to keep things simple, for outside an old painted sign that reads ‘Ale, Cider, Meat’… pretty straight forward, no?
Handles on pint glasses. And because the bus stop is right outside... No need to leave until absolutely necessary!
Pork pies and real ale and cider. Legendary addition to the already great range of pubs between the Heath and Tufnell Park...
As ale pubs go, this is almost too perfect. Can't wait for them to get their beer garden going in the summer.
Nice atmospheric place to go to for Roast Pork Bap after a walk on Hampstead Heath. Recently refurbished
Try the scotch eggs. Just ask for extra mustard...
Gospel Oak Overground is only 5min walk. From outside the pub turn left then take the 2nd left. It's under 2nd bridge!
Great selection of beer. And there's a bus stop right outside as well. Very nicely located
My favourite pub in London, feels like it's been transplanted from somewhere in Yorkshire. Wood, meat, real fire, cheap. Cash only, super friendly staff, great beers and cider, proper bar snacks.
Get yourself a roast pork bap. Mindblowingly good. Great selection of ales and ciders although it's cash only!
Brilliant real ale/hipster pub. The pork pies are great!
Quite some Collection of Ale & Cider
Excellent independent beers and ciders. Like walking back in time 30 years.
Lovely roast pork baps 'n coider. Mmmm!
Pork bap. Pork bap. Pork bap. Pork bap. That's all you need to know.
The taps are always changing and they also work with a lot of London microbreweries, so the beer is amazing http://barchick.com/find-a-bar/london/the-southampton-arms
Eat the roast pork bap. Amazingly tasty
The Rum Porter is delicious but it's going fast!
Monday night pub quizz is legendary
The ciders are great but the scotch eggs are to die for.
Great atmosphere: old photos and vinyl on play. Only local ales and cider; don't expect lager. There is wine. Cheese and pork baps are amazing and cheap. Simply a treasure. Major thumbs up! Cash only!
Love the food for a Sunday pub lunch - book in advance though
As they say, they "are the only dedicated ale & cider house in London to sell only beers & ciders from small independent UK brewers."
Separate bar & restaurant area were you can enjoy fine wine and good food or simply relax with friend over a beer.
When beer writers imagine heaven, it looks exactly like the Southampton Arms. (via nytimes)
Have you had the sausage roll here yet? What, are you serious?
Small pub, with an impressive range. Be warned though, the my don't have any fuzzy cider, if that's what you prefer, and the barmaid can't tell the difference between cider and Perry.
Nice stripped-down pub, bare in a good way like an early White Stripes album
Doesn't feel like you're in London which sometimes is a good thing. Good beer and unpretentious
Try the eggs. Interesting.
Epic, yet tiny, ale and cider house. This is one of my top five pubs in the universe.
It'll rekindle your love of cider. Vegetarian Scotch eggs are great for lining your stomach.
Real ale and cloudy cider.
Pork baps go hard. Order extra piccalilli!
They play records.
With a constantly changing selection of roughly ten beers, each one gone once the firkin runs dry, every visit is a singular, unassuming education in quality drinking.
This was my first pub in UK and it was just perfect. Great prices, stuff, menu and bar. 100% recommend!!
Great local pub with a good atmosphere.
