The swearing of The Horns was often performed here.It is a custom started in the C18 to encourage travellers’ patronage. It was quite light-
There were nineteen pubs in Highgate that carried this out in mid C19.
The ceremony is still carried out although “the horns” is now evident as a pair of antlers!
Built around 1547 is possibly Highgate’s oldest existing pub.
Its name possibly originates from the fact that many fights were settled here in the olden days!
