Drink at the Faltering Fullback

Your author wouldn't usually go for a pub which sells itself on big screen sports, or self defines as a 'hidden gem', but there's something quite pleasant about the Faltering Fullback, covered in ivy on a backstreet in North London.

The charming front bar at the pub is immediately appealing, with lots of wood and real pub charm, and whilst the odd cavernous room out the back doesn't suit everyone, presumably that's where they put the big screen, and the interesting tiered garden has plenty of space to escape it, and wasn't packed with smokers unlike at some pubs. Add in the usual pub extras like Thai food, a quiz and regular music on a Sunday and it's a decent sort of place to while away an hour if you're in the mood.
