The Clissold Arms is a family-orientated pub situated in North London between Muswell Hill and East Finchley. We pride ourselves on producing great home-made, locally-sourced and traditional British dishes with European influences.

The ambience of the Clissold Arms is what makes this pub a truly unique experience with five distinct spaces – the main Restaurant, the Kinks Room, the Oscars Terrace, the Shed and our Garden, all of which you can enjoy for dinner or drinks. Our different rooms can also be hired out for any special occasions, including birthdays, B’nei Mitzvah and the perfect venue for a wedding. Why not have a look around for yourself by watching our video.

The Clissold Arms is the home of The Kinks, having had the honour of hosting their first gig in December 1960, and their last gig, in June 1996. In their honour, our Kinks Room is adorned with Kinks memorabilia and is the pride of Kinks fans from all over the world.

Named Best Family Pub in London and the South East in 2014-15 and 2015-16, The Clissold Arms has continually sought to build strong and meaningful relationships with its customers as well as groups from the local community. The pub is host to a number of community activities and hold yearly events for Halloween and Christmas.
