The Winchester

The Winchester is a former public house at 206 Archway Road, Highgate, London N6 5BA.

In early 2016 locals campaigned to save the pub from a proposed residential redevelopment [1]. While the campaign was successful, and the old building frontage remains undeveloped, The Winchester ceased operations as a pub in 2016.

It was on the Campaign for Real Ale's National Inventory of Historic Pub Interiors.[2]

It was built in 1881 as the Winchester Tavern, and it later became the Winchester Hall Hotel. The name derives from Winchester Hall, a nearby late 17th-century mansion.[2]
