Nipped in here to take advantage of the beer garden while it was sunny. Didn't stay for long but the outside area is lovely and the toilets are clean. Nice staff.

The Bald Faced Stag, British Pub and Dining room, just minutes walk from East Finchley tube station. The venue boasts a light airy dining room seating up to 120, a bar area which includes the "Thomas Grub" function space and a beautiful decked garden built around a historic sycamore tree.

With a varied menu served throughout, The Stag is the perfect choice for a special night out or just a quick bite to eat. Within East Finchley neighbours; the famous Phoenix cinema right on the doorstep, The Stag is also the ideal location for a pre-show meal or post-show critique.

Dog-friendly in the bar area and just a short walk from Cherry Tree and Highgate Woods, the pub provides refreshment for weary walkers. Child friendly throughout it is a well-loved venue for the big occasions such as Mothers and Fathers Days, as well as for a family Sunday lunch.
