I love this bar , great my local, People talk and its the heart of the community , a great little community corner and now , you can not stand at the bar . Bit crazy as pubs need local people. Great food and staff also brilliant manager . So give us the corner back. 😂

Why is there a picture of a loo as the main image? Anyway we go here often. The best and widest ale selection for miles which are only approx £2.50 a pint (!) and cheap and filling freshly cooked food is available all day also. The Roasts are gone, but the menu is huge anyway so it doesnt matter and... More

Every summer we have a mini break in Palmers Green N13 and the Alfred Herring is our stop for breakfast and dinners. The food is always fresh and very nice presented. Reasonable prices. It's a large pub so there is room for all. Quite a laid back area where you can sit outside and watch the world go by. There... More

Five of us went to the Alfred Herring on Saturday night prior to going on for dinner. It is a Wetherspoons and very reasonably priced. We had a 17 year old with us who was stopped at the door by the security guys and said she would not be drinking. They said she could come in until 9:00 then would... More

It's a very well managed, friendly Pub. Service is always good* and there's a great choice of well kept beers and drinks. The food is always hot and well presented. Simple things like eggs served how you ask with breakfast show the kitchen cares. The Herring does stand out from certain other pubs in the chain. Staff having a cheerful... More

This is a Wetherspoon pub and certainly the one with the best food I've been to so far. We happened to go there on "Fish Friday". The place was packed and we almost gave up trying to get a seat. I am glad we found a table and stayed. You order at the bar, tell them your table number and... More

We had a pub burger and a BQ half slab and to this a Heineken and a glass of Merlot. FF was served to both dishes and also a coleslaw salad. I do prefer a bit different type of BQ but the meals were OK and quite reasonable. They also had a curry evening which looked interesting. Seems to have... More
