We love our North London pubs and none more so than the Tottenham pubs and bars – you’re spoilt for choice in terms of drinking especially on Spurs match days, when the pre-game expectations and atmosphere are electric.
Tottenham’s pub and bar scene is particularly blessed because it has a good combination of traditional pubs like The Beehive and The Volunteer alongside more quirky pubs like the High Cross pub (housed in a former public toilet) plus a bevy of breweries like Ora, Redemption Brewing and Beavertown. Add in Tottenham craft beer bars like Tottenham TrueCraft and you’re guaranteed a good night out.
We lived in Tottenham for several years so we had a lot of fun putting this together! From historic Tottenham high road pubs to backstreet boozers, here is our guide to the best Tottenham pubs and bars in North London.

Pubs and brewery taprooms near Tottenham Hotspur Stadium (formerly White Hart Lane)
There are plenty of Tottenham pubs near to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, along Tottenham High Road (to note the old Spurs stadium used to be called White Hart Lane).
Beavertown Corner Pin pub
The nearest pub to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is the Beavertown Corner Pin.
Situated a stone’s throw (or should that be football kick?) away from Tottenham Hotspur’s football stadium, Beavertown’s bold, bright and colourful new pub The Corner Pin is a welcome addition to the neighbourhood.
As you’d expect from Beavertown, their beer range is epic and their bar set-up is ….well, bar-none with their quirky beer taps, incredible illustrations and branding throughout – even in the toilets. The Corner Pin has transformed a dingy old neighbourhood pub and brought it back to life.
Beavertown’s Corner Pin is a fine Tottenham bar and it also has a big beer garden with a huge outdoor screen and alfresco bar which makes it the perfect place to watch Tottenham Hotspur games especially when they are playing away from home.
On our recent visit, you could enter the beer garden from the pub via a mocked up player’s tunnel complete with roaring crowd sounds.
The food menu at Corner Pin is good, hearty pub grub and diner fare – we tried the £15 cheese burger and chips, dirty fries plus moorish deep-fried pickles (all delicious).
As well as the usual core Beavertown beer lines like Neck Oil, Gamma Ray and Smog Rocket on tap, the Corner Pin has a special ‘One of Our Own’ Spurs IPA on tap plus their own Corner Pin branded glasses. All these nice touches make this one of Tottenham’s best pubs, either to watch a football game or just enjoy good quality and very quaffable lager.
732 High Road, London N17 0AG
A 15 minute walk from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium brings you to ORA Brewing, another Tottenham Brewery located on an industrial estate near Tottenham Marshes.
A little taste of Italy in Tottenham, ORA Brewing started as a home brewing operation in Milan and Emilia Romagna before transferring to North London.
The Ora Brewery taproom is open on Friday nights, plus from 1pm on Saturday and Sundays and is a nice set-up with picnic tables inside and chairs and a sofa located inside, amongst the brewery equipment.
The soft furnishings and indoor plants are a really nice touch, although the beer prices here are more expensive than the other Tottenham breweries. The craft on draft alternates and when we visited, we opted for a pint of Icarus (lemongrass infused and 4.5% abv) and a half pint of Cerbero, a rather decadent tiramisu stout.
Unit 16a, Rosebery Industrial Park, London N17 9SR
Redemption Brewery and Bohem Brewery
Situated on the outskirts of an unassuming industrial estate in the shadow of the Tottenham Hotspur stadium, lies one of Tottenham’s best breweries plus a cracking Tottenham match day pub and taproom to boot!
Redemption Brewery is a well established brewery with their beers available in numerous local bars and also larger Wetherspoons pubs. Specialising in craft cask beers, they only open their taproom during Tottenham Hotspurs home match days.
Compass West Estate, West Road, Tottenham, N17 0XL
Beavertown Taproom at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
We hear this is Europe’s longest bar! Located in the South East corner of Spurs stadium adjacent to the food area Market Place, Beavertown’s Taproom at Tottenham Stadium is only accessible during match days and with a valid match ticket – alas this is one Tottenham Pub that is readily accessible seven days a week.
You’ll also have a direct view of the Beavertown Lab Microbrewery, where various new Beavertown brews are concocted, and served exclusively at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium – and craft beer in London always tastes better at the source right?!
782 High Rd, Tottenham,London N17 0BX, UK
Tottenham High Road Pubs and Bars
The Bluecoats pub
A former girls school built in the 1830s that has now been turned into a beer and burger bar, this is a family friendly pub that has a whole heap of craft beers on tap (up to 20 different beers at any one time). Fittingly as a former school, chalk blackboards behind the bar denote all the various prices and beer percentages.
Found on Tottenham High Road, about 5 minutes walk from the Tottenham Hotspur stadium, their speciality is burgers and hearty pub grub – a top Tottenham pub with some incredible old interiors to boot.
614 High Road, Tottenham, N17 9TA
The High Cross pub
Given the High Cross used to be a public toilet (we ‘sh*t’ you not!), this is quite a quirky place to visit, with several local craft beers on tap (often including Tottenham based breweries like Redemption Brewery and Pressure Drop).
We’ve visited on a couple of Sundays and it has always been busy, likely because their Sunday Roasts are delicious (you can choose from several options on the pub blackboard). Given it is a former public convenience, the High Cross is quite small inside so table space is limited – advance booking is recommended.
350 High Road, Tottenham, N17 9HT
One of Tottenham’s most popular pubs, The Beehive is ‘buzzing’ with life and has one of the best beer gardens in London. Popular for live sports and regular events from live music to yoga lates, The Beehive also has weekly food and drink specials like Happy Hour, summer BBQ’s and deals on fish and chips / burgers on selected nights of the week.
The kitchen at the Beehive pumps out hearty pub grub fare including a nice line in Sunday Roasts – incredibly busy on Tottenham Hotspur game days, this is one lively local pub that is well worth a visit.
Stoneleigh Road, London N17 9BQ

Brewpubs in Tottenham
True Craft, Tottenham
You had us at craft beer and fresh sourdough pizza! This gem of a brewpub is one of our favourite Tottenham pubs, as the beer lines change regularly and the pizzas are so good (you can watch them being made and fired in the pizza oven from the comfort of the bar).
Located approximately five minutes walk away from Seven Sisters tube station, they also have a fridge chock full of beers to takeaway. As the bar is quite small and can get full quite quickly, it is best to arrive early if you are planning an all day session.
68 West Green Road, Tottenham, N15 5NR
Pubs near Tottenham Hale station
One of the longest running pubs in Tottenham and much adored by locals, this traditional Tottenham Pub is a perfect pit stop if you are walking from Tottenham Hale Station to Tottenham Hotspurs on a match day – and to be honest, it is a good Tottenham pub to visit any time of the week.
Always popular with a small beer garden out front and views of nearby Down Lane Park, grab an ice-cold pint at The Volunteer in Tottenham.
131 Chesnut Rd, London N17 9EU
Ferry Boat Inn, Tottenham Hale
Situated on the edge of the Walthamstow Wetlands, this recently refurbished inn is a nice afternoon spot (it also happens to be our local pub).
Why we like it is not so much for the food (average at best, although the burgers and gammon are pretty good) but more for the fact it doesn’t feel like a London pub, given it’s beer garden overlooks the canal and there are various bird calls and noises of nature from the neighbouring wetlands.
Check their website for weekly food offers such as half price pies on a Monday night.

Tottenham brewery pubs and Tottenham tap rooms
Hot on the heels of Bermondsey Beer Mile, Tottenham is fast becoming one of London’s best beer boroughs, being home to several established breweries.
All have taprooms that either open at the weekends or coincide with when a Tottenham Hotspur home game on. With new local breweries opening in Tottenham all the time (especially in neighbouring Walthamstow), our top Tottenham taprooms include:
Pressure Drop Brewery
One of the nicer brewery set-ups, Pressure Drop brewery opens up its Tottenham taproom every Friday night and Saturday, serving around 10 of their own lines. With the bar and picnic tables set amongst the brewing vats inside, the summer months also see their car park become an alfresco beer garden.
Pressure Drop is dog friendly (and obviously they welcome beer lovers too!). Check out the beautiful beer can designs in the well stocked beer fridge as you walk inside. Most weekends, they have a guest pop up food-stall.
Unit 6, Lockwood Industrial Park, Mill Mead Road, N17 9QP
YOU MIGHT LIKE: Guide to the best London craft beer brewery tours >
The first main brewery in Tottenham (and located a few doors down from Pressure Drop), Beavertown was one of London’s first industrial estate taproom pioneers and is open open every Saturday and Sunday to the public.
With plans to open a huge new site at Ponds Forge, surely world beer domination is next on the cards for Beavertown?
So it is great to still be able to visit the taproom at Lockwood Industrial estate that started it all, near to Tottenham Hale Tube station and just behind Hale Village. There is no better place for sunny Saturday and Sunday beer sessions.
Unit 17, Lockwood Industrial Park, Mill Mead Road, N17 9QP
Gravity Well Brewing – opening in Tottenham 2023
On Compass West industrial estate, Gravity Welll Brewing’s new Tottenham brewery will be neighbours to Redemption Brew Co.& Match Day Taproom and this should make for a brilliant little Tottenham pub crawl close to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Match Days.
One Mile End Brewing – permanently closed
Alas Tottenham brewery and pub One Mile End brewed their last beer in 2022 – the site is now permanently closed.
Other Tottenham Drinking Spots (not necessarily Tottenham pubs)
Craving Coffee, Tottenham
Similar to the aforementioned Tottenham breweries, Craving is a neat little independent cafe come pub located on an industrial estate serving light bites, a Ramen and Asian fusion menu plus local Tottenham beer, wine and cocktails.
Whilst not strictly a Tottenham pub, this is nice place to grab a cold beer with some nice food and on Thursday and Friday nights, Craving are open late until 11pm.
39B Markfield Road, Tottenham N15 4QA
Tottenham pubs guide – final notes
There is no longer a Tottenham Wetherspoons. The former Tottenham Wetherspoons is still a pub but it is no longer market of the Wetherspoons chain
Pubs on Tottenham Court Road are a totally different thing – Tottenham Court Road pubs and Tottenham Court Road are in central London are not to be confused with Tottenham pubs in North London (we’ve heard tourists confuse the two a few times).
