The Flask

Beer garden in Highgate

The Flask pub offers a fantastic beer garden in Highgate for those warmer days. Or just wrap up with a scarf and enjoy the fresh autumnal air!

Part of the pub dates back to 1663 back to an era when Highgate was a small village on the outskirts of London. It still has two 17th century horseboxes in place, and the main body of the pub dates from around the 1720s.

The pub’s name comes from the tradition of selling flasks from the pub, which were then used to collect water from the springs around Highgate and nearby Hampstead Heath. It is also known to be slightly haunted as well as hosting famous characters such as Bryon, Shelley and Keats. I do love a bit of history!

The pub is run by Fullers, so the prices are a little cheaper than its competitors. We haven’t tried the food but The Flask offers typical British pub grub. This includes sandwiches, burgers and fish and chips at reasonable prices.

Definitely head to this great pub with its great beer garden in Highgate for a little tipple.
