Formerly a school for girls, a brand-new watering hole a mere skip from Spurs’ shiny new stadium are the latest stockists of our cider and ginger beer.

The Bluecoats should suit the seasons – one side is light-filled and modern, while a partition separates off a dark, distressed room with a mahogany bar and vintage signs bearing old-fashioned crests. But the most important season of all is the footie kind – blinds usually come down for better TV viewing.

If football is this pub’s first love, beer would have to be its second. As well as the usual suspects such as Heinekken and Guinness, their long blackboard boasts 20 ‘house’, ‘craft’ and ‘cask’ beers – and we’re proud to have made the cut.

Check ’em out if you’re in town – we’ll wager you won’t be disappointed.
