What No Skies



What No Skies

A Swiss chalet with a bar in North London

Location: 98 Finchley Road, NW3 5EL

Description: Externally, at least, this is one of the more eccentric pubs in London.

Having taken its name literally, it consequently has the appearance of a Swiss chalet. A Swiss chalet, that is, on the apex of a multilane traffic island, with the back of a cinema looming in the background, like a metaphorical Matterhorn.

The 'Ye Old Swiss Cottage' is a Sam Smith's pub too so the beer is sure to be great and in theory very resonable!

Plus the quirky factor is always there...one minute you're in the smoke, then next your on the slopes!
