Brendan The Navigator, Freehouse, 90 Highgate Hill, is one-year-old this weekend.

We have navigated through the impacts of the pandemic and we are now back open six days a week and sometimes seven.

We would really like to thank the local community and our regulars for their great support in our shared voyage.

The landlord John and his partner Sandy and all our friendly staff would love to invite everyone to come celebrate with us as we lay on a feast of music and food.

Top-quality fresh Anglo-Irish fare is available every Thursday and throughout the weekend.

This Friday night from 9pm we are hosting The Hungry Grass, a well-known London band, featuring Peter James Coughlan on lead vocals.

This is a group that describe themselves as a London-based “Irish melodeon, goat movement that plays progressive trad/folk rock”… so expect something disturbingly different
