The Wrestlers in Highgate
There is a lovely pub that we visited for the first time in London. It is in a posh neighbourhood area in Highgate, North London.
What I really like the most about this pub is its tranquillity: it is not crowded. Unlike the other Fullers pub down the road which is extremely busy and we can’t even get a seat inside, The Wrestlers offers a relaxed, calm atmosphere.
The building itself has its charm. Including the, I believe, 16th century fireplace.
The wooden panel also gives this pub its charm.
There is an interesting history that the pub has an ancient tradition. It is called “The ancient ceremony on swearing on the horns at Highgate”.
And this is probably that ancient horn?
I am not sure if this so called ancient tradition is a true story or a ‘not-so-true’ one.
Here is the food at the Wrestlers. They taste very good! I had a red Thai curry and jasmine rice and my husband had bread with olives and cheesy chips.
Here is the wine list.
And here is the menu.
There is also a cozy outside garden.
The Wrestlers also do real ales.
So if you like a charming, cozy, quiet, romantic environment. I would suggest to visit The Wrestlers.
In the summer, you can also sit outside by the front. I think we will definitely be back to The Wrestlers.
