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.
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!
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.
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.
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!
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?
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.
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
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.
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.
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..
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!
The best pub in London, old charm, good mix of patrons and proper hand pulled ales and cider. And the best roast pork rolls ever.
A marvellous pub - too exciting to go for just one pint. Everything about it is spot on and just lovely, including the friendly dog.
Pork pies and real ale and cider. Legendary addition to the already great range of pubs between the Heath and Tufnell Park...
Separate bar & restaurant area were you can enjoy fine wine and good food or simply relax with friend over a beer.
Get yourself a roast pork bap. Mindblowingly good. Great selection of ales and ciders although it's cash only!
This was my first pub in UK and it was just perfect. Great prices, stuff, menu and bar. 100% recommend!!
A strong and ever changing selection of British beers, pork baps and live piano make this pub great!
Cozy old boozer, full of friendly folk, cute dogs and drinks only sourced from small independent brewers
Nice atmospheric place to go to for Roast Pork Bap after a walk on Hampstead Heath. Recently refurbished
Easily one of the best pubs in London; countless ales, ciders and the best mustard I've ever tasted.
Doesn't feel like you're in London which sometimes is a good thing. Good beer and unpretentious
Cash only, be warned. Lovely selection of beers and a little beer garden. Pork nap was very tasty!
Gospel Oak Overground is only 5min walk. From outside the pub turn left then take the 2nd left. It's under 2nd bridge!
Great no nonsense pub, all independent beers and ciders, all the same price, cash only
As they say, they "are the only dedicated ale & cider house in London to sell only beers & ciders from small independent UK brewers."
The pork Poe's are excellent, and are served with an equally good piccalilli!
Great for decent beer & cider. Follow them on twitter to see what's on.
Pork bap. Pork bap. Pork bap. Pork bap. That's all you need to know.
The beer, the pork, and perhaps the cider, if you're that way inclined
Tried the best coffee ale. ask for it, if they have some you won't regret it
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.
As ale pubs go, this is almost too perfect. Can't wait for them to get their beer garden going in the summer.
It'll rekindle your love of cider. Vegetarian Scotch eggs are great for lining your stomach.
Excellent independent beers and ciders. Like walking back in time 30 years.
Solid ale & cider principles with a decent bit of pork pie. What's not to like?
Handles on pint glasses. And because the bus stop is right outside... No need to leave until absolutely necessary!
Epic, yet tiny, ale and cider house. This is one of my top five pubs in the universe.
Fred the dog is lovely. Once she brings you her ball it's the end. You can't resist her
The ciders are great but the scotch eggs are to die for.
Love the food for a Sunday pub lunch - book in advance though
Serious Pig Salami ... Seriously Good! Ask at the bar.
Brilliant real ale/hipster pub. The pork pies are great!
The pork pie. Definitely get the pork pie.
