Junction Tavern

101 Fortess Road
Kentish Town

Although this pub is not a listed building, it has an interior recognised by CAMRA as being of some regional importance and the description is as follows: “Built 1885. Although it now operates as a gastro pub, some original Victorian splendour has been retained in the rear fully panelled bar. It has a fine bar counter with decorative brackets, a row of fielded panelling along the top and foot rail around the bottom. Within the panelling are large plain mirrors and an impressive carved mahogany fireplace with a bowed mantelpiece featuring a carved head but a modern hearth. A carved wooden pillar holds up a three sectioned decorative plasterwork ceiling and there is a deep frieze and cornice. It does have a modern bar back fitting and a small piece of modern bar counter at the rear. The front bar has all modern fittings and the pub has been extended to the rear.”

The Junction Tavern featured on the North Stars: Evening Crawl of Belsize Park and Kentish Town on 25 April 2018.
