I have been at the twelve pins in Finsbury Park for few beers with my friends. A lot of variety of beers an ciders... nice atmosphere. But the staff was a bit rude and unfriendly.

Called in here on St Patrick's day, Gaelic football being played on the large screen even whilst the Cheltenham Gold cup was on the other smaller TV's. Went past later (after midnight) and the place was very busy, appeared to have live music on. Probably rammed on match days when the Gunners... More

Popped in for a quick drink and respite from the weather. Warm and friendly staff with a a good selection of draught product. Immaculately clean and large well kept bar area. Family friendly and the sport coverage is at the perfect volume as not to dominate.

Perfect place to go before an Arsenal game. They do not serve food before the game but it is close to the stadium and atmosphere is good

The lunchtime menu offered a good range of choices, and after a short wait, we were amazed to see the generous portions and the high quality of the meals ordered. Paul who brought the food to our table made us feel welcome and we are now eager to come again, and tell others about this great place to eat at... More
