The Highbury Barn is open

Yes, we are open! We are back offering our customers the enthusiastic warm welcome and attentive service you have come to expect, however as you can imagine things are slightly different.

Our opening times have temporarily changed and for the foreseeable future we will have interim menus while we all get used to the new normal. These interim menus will feature a selection of our customers favourites, using the same fresh, locally sourced ingredients and for the time being to ensure social distancing is maintained, booking is essential.

We look forward to seeing you back – we’ve missed you!

Main Menu

We’re sure you’ve had enough of cooking at home and endless take-aways, so we hope that our new interim main menu (available Monday to Saturday 12 – 8pm) will be just the ticket to tempt you out of the house. Let us do the cooking while you relax in comfort.

“Football and Beers”

“Spent the afternoon in the Highbury Barn yesterday afternoon to watch the Man City / Man Utd game. Not the result we were after seeing as we are from the red side of Manchester, but the pub, staff, locals and the beer made up for that.”

“An absolute gem. This place has superb food, at not-insane prices. All this combined with helpful, intelligent service, well kept ales, wide selection of food and drinks. Will be back next time I’m in the area.”
Rodger, Google Review

“Love this place, it’s such an eclectic mix of footie pub/bar mixed with amazing well above par restaurant, the Sunday roast is by far the best Ive had, it’s got a premium feel that allows you to flip between your pub & nice restaurant sides.”
Nigel, Google Review

Probably my favourite pub in London. Great food, excellent range of drinks but the most important thing is the atmosphere which is all down to the staff and management and the customers they attract. Plenty of room inside and ample seating area outside. Best to book a table if you want to eat in the evenings though, it’s always busy, especially at the weekend. It’s not a cheap watering hole but in my opinion worth every penny.”
Graham, Google Review


All our food is ethically sourced, comes from sustainable sources and supports local producers wherever possible.

Our Beef and Lamb is from Godfrey’s Butchers, our free range chickens are from Norfolk and our Kentish eggs are free range too. And, all our fish and seafood is fresh from Bourne’s Fishmongers.

As the year progresses you’ll find the food delights that come with each season incorporated into our menu as we use only the finest, freshest ingredients and the best that Britain has to offer.
