The pub is named after Mabel Macinelly who ran the pub until her death in 1972. Originally from Dublin, Ireland, she married into the family that owned Hamilton House in Mabledon Place and became Mabel Hamilton. Apparently Mabel has been known to ‘return’ to the pub to operate the dumb waiter that no longer exists.
Prior to the pub being renamed it was known as the Great Escape.
The pub was named North London CAMRA Pub of the Year in 2006 and it was also awarded Shepherd Neame’s Cellar of the Year Award in 2005.
The light interior has been renovated in early 2011 and features a real fire. Split into different areas including an elevated snug area, the long bar dominates the one wall of the pub. TVs throughout the pub show sporting events such as the football so you can expect the pub to get busy during matches.
Up to 5 Shepherd Neame beers are available including Spitfire, Master Brew, Kent’s Best, Bishop’s Finger and a seasonal guest.
