High on Highgate Hill, The Flask may now be a gastro-pub with a big reputation but its name was made long ago when Dick Turpin frequented it. This Grade II listed pub, dating back to 1663 and made famous by Byron, Keats, Hogarth and Betjeman, has become a London landmark. It retains much of its character and cosy atmosphere and a maze of small rooms is served by two bars.
