The Faltering Fullback

Hidden away in the back streets near Finsbury Park, the ivy-covered pub of The Faltering Fullback is four pubs in one. The front bar is an inviting if busy horseshoe-shaped affair, stocked plentifully with draught and bottled beers. There is an exciting combination of objects – guitars, scarves, aeroplanes – hanging from the ceiling. The back bar continues the theme in a more easy-going way. You’d be forgiven for believing the pub ended there, but a set of double doors lead through into a surprise third space, where the mood is more lively and focused around a pool table. A further set of doors leads out into London’s most eccentric beer garden. A bewildering series of stairs, gangways and terraces is reminiscent of the Ewok village from Return of the Jedi.
