Quirky and colourful, The Apple Tree is not your run-of-the-mill pub. Independently owned and proud to be non-conformist, from all of our team we offer a warm welcome to all and a home to the LGBTQ+ communities and to those living an alternative lifestyle.

We’re more than a pub; we’re also an event venue and community hub. We host exciting workshops and events such as Body Positive Life Painting, Immersive Theatre Performances, Open Mics, Drag Cabarets and monthly Queer Clothes Swaps. Check out our listings on Facebook for the upcoming events.

Had my birthday party in the room upstairs. Great room, lovely food. The staff looked after us so well, and all seem like great people. We felt very well looked after. I'd really recommend this place to anyone. I'll be going back for a pint soon, as it seems like a top pub

A really nice modern queer pub.Expect some sort of meetup to be happening, either downstairs or upstairs.The food is very good, much better than you'd expect in a pub, but with prices to match the quality. Vegan first, but with non-vegan options too.

Nice Pub, friendly staff and great food. Extremely reasonably priced compared to some other pubs around Grays Inn road.

I've never seen in my life a place filled with so many smiling, dancing and inteligent people. Such a nice place and croud. And the toilet... wow, that's art, I never imagined that a toilet can have so much beauty. And they wipe it blank every day. Awesome, isn't it? Art for a day.

Neat family-friendly pub with decorative interior, and even games for kids. Women's toilets have chalk board markers for wall doodles (hehe)

Such a beautiful little gem of a pub with delicious vegan food. I went here just to meet some friends, but turns out there was a drag show being performed that night which made my visit truly memorable. I'll definitely be back again very soon!

My boyfriend and I had ordered a burger through deliveroo before, but wanted to try out going to the pub ourselves. We tried two of the burgers and the breaded Mac and cheese vegan balls. Everything was so delicious and the staff was so friendly! The Mac and cheese is a smaller portion, but hearty and filling!

Wonderful pub, amazing cocktails, super friendly staff and the vegan food is glorious (and that's coming from a full-time meat eater. Their entire menu is vegan) ❤️

A good standby pub with good enough food... The apple tree doesn't shine bright as one of the stars of the area, and yet I keep going back. Perhaps it is...
