Historical version 2 of Bald Faced Stag, N2 8AB (view current version)

One of those Real Pubs redevelopments, this is a very capacious gastropub, with plenty of tables and a separate dining area. There's a good beer garden as well. The background music is fairly loud but not too distracting. Seating is generally leather and plush.

They have ales on tap, with Black Sheep Bitter a standard and a number of guests ales available (and advertised outside on a chalkboard). Addlestone's Cider, Hoegaarden, Leffe, Staropramen and the standard range of lagers are on tap, with a good selection of bottled beers as well.

The menu has a good selection of food, though tends towards the pricier end (£9-13 main courses). However, my butternut squash polenta with wild mushrooms, spinach and goats cheese was extremely good, and Jo's butternut squash tart with halloumi (sensing a winter theme, here) was, despite being from the starter menu, still perfectly substantial and tasty.
