Situated a 2 minute walk from Highgate Village, this traditional English pub is a hidden gem. The Wrestlers has stood on it's present site since 1547. The present owners are in their 16th year of running this fine hostelry. With its real fireplace, wooden furniture and stained glass windows, it is a pub full of old world charm. Many stories have been shared here and with its friendly bar staff and great variety of drinks, we hope you'll have a memorable visit, time and time again.
Now, you've heard of all the usual gins and vodkas, but have you heard of the Sacred range? We were the very first pub to serve this quality local product, indeed we even had a hand in tasting/commenting on many of the early samples ( it was a tough job but someone had to do it!). It's made with natural botanical ingredients, just round the corner from the Wrestlers and we serve it as our house pour. So having lead the way, we are delighted to see Sacred Gin and Vodka being served as a premium spirit in some of the finest bars in the world.
We have something for everyone...if you're after a classic English pint, we have the award winning London Pride and Cornish favourite Tribute Ale as permanent fixtures, or if you're after something slightly different our ever changing guest ales offer something a little more challenging. From springy, hoppy pale ales to sweet winter stouts, we source our ales locally and have our staff trained to look after them properly so that they are in optimum condition for serving...don't believe us? Just ask for a taster!
We have award winning beers from the top craft beer producers in the world; if you wish to try something from the best craft beer suppliers, how about our Brooklyn lager - its wickedly hoppy but with a refreshing bitterness and floral hop aroma. If it's hops that your're a fan of, try our Goose Island IPA - a hop lover's dream all the way from Chicago...or if you're feeling a little rock n'roll, you will LOVE Punk IPA.......... so fruity it will blow your mind!!!
Now here's where we get even more serious, not only do we have a good range of wines by the glass but we also have an extensive list of some rather 'fine' wines too...also known as the fancy ones. Now depending on your palette you can opt for a cheeky glass of merlot for a few pounds, or take a deeper look into the book (our menu) where we have some of the finest french burgundy and bordeax available, that many of London's reataurants would be proud. We all need a treat once in a while - and with that cheeseboard, we say...sounds like heaven.
We proudly serve traditional home made meals - as well as tapas (just to spice things up a bit)!
Our food menu is created using the highest quality suppliers. If you have not tried our sausage platter then you've been missing out...with award winning sausages sourced from North Germany and our bacon filled sauerkraut you're in for a treat. Our burgers have been called the best burgers in north London by our customers, and our Sunday roasts will have you feeling like a kid at Christmas! Our Spanish produce using borough market suppliers Brindisa, is unrivalled. Our cheese-boards and cured meat platters are ideal for sharing and with our daily specials, there is something for everyone.
Some of the best people in the world are bar staff (and we think we've bagged them all)! You're never alone at the wrestlers, we're here to listen to those fun stories whilst creating new ones! With our smiley faces and our brains full of booze knowledge we're always happy to help.
