The Tally Ho

Fancy a quick one? Tally Ho

The Tally Ho is a bit of a landmark in North London - a pub situated right between the intersection of where two roads split.

So why the name Tally Ho, you wonder? A bit unusual for a pub name - certainly different to things like the Crown and Anchor, or the Old Ship Inn anyway. The reason actually dates back into history - a time when a coaching inn was established on this very junction in the 1830's - and the company's name - the Tally Ho of course.

These days the pub is a very local affair, and caters to the young (and not so young) of the Finchley area - those who like their ale cheap, and their entertainment from the music system or the big plasma screen (you're never far from football anywhere in London).

Being a Wetherspoon pub, the prices are very reasonable, especially when compared to London prices, and it is possible to see promotions that would make you definitely blink, rub your eyes and look again - of the type of '2 meals for 6.99', which the chain is famous for.

The pub also has taken on the craft beer revolution currently taking over London, with big hitters such as Brewdog Punk IPA and Brooklyn Lager appearing amongst others.

Overall, if you want a pub that delivers named beers at very, very reasonable prices, in a location that used to be a stopping point for the horse-drawn coaches entering London, everything is in place for you to visit here and enjoy - as I am sure you will...
