The Highgate pub all set to offer a very special brew
One of Highgate’s oldest pub sites will be opening its doors again as a micro-brewery.
The historic Grade II-listed building on North Hill, formerly The Bull, has been operating as a pub for more than 500 years.
The micro-brewery will be run by fledgling pub operator, The London Brewing Company.
Pub manager Dan Fox plans to carry out an extensive refit costing several hundred thousand pounds and the beers will be LBC’s own – all brewed on site.
Taken on as a 25-year lease and costing �70,000 in rent a year, the project at the 3,605 sq ft is a big development.

Mr Fox said: “We are really pleased to offer a new lease of life for one of London’s oldest pubs. We believe we have a strong offer and can’t wait to show the local residents of Highgate their new feel local.”
Chris Bickle, of letting agent Davis Coffer Lyons said the site had attracted a lot of interest from across the leisure sector – including gyms and nurseries. But the company decided it should remain true to its pub roots.

He said: “It seems fitting that a site with more than 500 years of history continues to trade as a pub at heart, with a unique brewing concept which we expect residents and visitors will really appreciate.”
