King & Tinker Public House, Whitewebbs Lane, Enfield
King & Tinker Public House, Whitewebbs Lane, Enfield
The entrance to this pub has what appears to be a scaled-down medieval manor house door, this opens into a 'baronial' bar with a too grand stone fireplace. Heavy oak beams span the low ceiling and dark red walls create a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

Parts of this pub date from the 16th century and it's thought a pub has stood on this site for over 1000 years.

Quotation from information in the pub.

Its curious name comes from a ballad which tells of an encounter between the King (James I) and a tinker (itinerant pan mender). The King is separated from his courtiers whilst hunting and takes refuge in an alehouse. The tinker does not realise with whom he is drinking. When the courtiers find their King, the tinker discovers the identity of his new drinking pal. This is the pub where it happened.
