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.
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.
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...
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?
Easily one of the best pubs in London; countless ales, ciders and the best mustard I've ever tasted.
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!
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!
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
Get yourself a roast pork bap. Mindblowingly good. Great selection of ales and ciders although it's cash only!
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.
Pork bap. Pork bap. Pork bap. Pork bap. That's all you need to know.
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.
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."
When beer writers imagine heaven, it looks exactly like the Southampton Arms. (via nytimes)
A strong and ever changing selection of British beers, pork baps and live piano make this pub great!
Great selection of beers and a nice local crowd. However, gets very crowded in the evenings so don't expect to have anywhere to sit unless you're willing to wait. There's room outside though!
Top pub...was quiet when we went in (1230 on a Monday between Xmas and NYE). Great beer selection, real fire, great atmosphere. Could do a beer festival in one stop here!
Excellent real ales and craft beers
Garden closes at 1030
Liking the vibe in here. Could take a while to get through the beers though ;)
Awesome beer selection. Contrary to popular rumour the beers are not exclusively local. They get the best on offer from Cornwall to Aberdeen via Huddersfield..
Separate bar & restaurant area were you can enjoy fine wine and good food or simply relax with friend over a beer.
Cash only folks!!
Fireplace AND real ale!
Named CAMRA’s ‘London Pub of the Year’.
Serious Pig Salami ... Seriously Good! Ask at the bar.
THE best pub in London
Tried the best coffee ale. ask for it, if they have some you won't regret it
Fred the dog is lovely. Once she brings you her ball it's the end. You can't resist her
Mmmmmm baps.....almost... Pork baps!
A marvellous pub - too exciting to go for just one pint. Everything about it is spot on and just lovely, including the friendly dog.
Veg scotch eggs way better than it sounds
