What: The Bluecoats

In a nutshell: Tottenham pub makeover

Summing it all up: A top bar team and food by Lucky Chip are turning this Tottenham landmark into a pub worth travelling to. It'll also be bloody handy for match days.


The low-down

As business rates in central London and the surrounding areas continue to soar, it's not surprising to hear of more interesting restaurants and pubs opening in areas that were - how shall we put it - previously challenged in that department.

And so it is with The Bluecoats Pub in Tottenham. Formerly The Pride of Tottenham (and before that The Blue Coats School For Girls - hence the name), this historic 18th century building has been taken over by a team who have Ruby's in Dalston and Night Tales in their CVs. Add to that food from Lucky Chip and suddenly Spurs fans have more than just a new stadium to look forward to.

The folk in charge of bringing this old boozer back to its former glory are Tom Gibson of Ruby’s in Dalston and Jamie Rule & Louis Hyams of Night Tales and Backround Bars.

First and foremost - the beer; The Bluecoats will have over 20 different lines of beer and ciders - mixing craft, keg and cask - and, as is de rigeur, there'll be plenty on offer from local breweries too such as Beavertown, Redemption & Pressure Drop.

Food will be provided by Lucky Chip, serving up their crowd pleasing burgers. At weekends they'll have Sunday Roasts which - if they follow the same lines as their pubs in Camden and Hackney - will feature 32 day aged Longhorn beef with marrow gravy and mushroom wellington with vegetable gravy among other delights.

“Opening a pub has always been a dream of mine and being a local boy, when the opportunity came to take over this amazing building, I couldn’t turn down," says Jamie. "I’ve walked past it and admired it since I was a child, so really excited to give it a new lease of life.”
