Edinboro Castle, Camden
I'll echo Jims comments above - went on the recommendation of this site (never had a duff one yet) and it is a pleasant gastro-pub/bar, its not a traditional pub. I will go back and try the food next time.
One major downside - the staff are so slow its painful.
Like many 'pubs' of the genre it gives with one hand and takes away with the other.
While it does have a good selection of beers and lagers, it also has phenomenally slow staff (and too few of them). If you visit on a sunny lunchtime expect a wait of up to 15 minutes at the bar.
The food (delivered from the ubiquitous open kitchen) is good but expensive and pretentious – and again, if it’s busy expect a 45 minute plus wait.
Other than that, the decor is pleasant and well considered. There is a mix of sofas, chairs, high tables, low tables, light spots and dark spots. The beer garden is well kept and larger than anything you can expect to find in central London.
It certainly isn’t a pub, but if you visit at quiet times (or have plenty of time to wait) you’ll be treated to a thoroughly passable gastro-experience.

Please check opening times with the pub before making a special journey.
Camden Town: Cross the road and turn down the Parkway passing the Dublin Castle etc. Keep an eye out on your left for the turning down Delancey Street. Take that and then you'll see Mornington Crescent on your right, and you should see the pub beer garden quickly after. Mornington Crescent: Exit tube, bear right and walk across Hampstead Road to Mornington Crescent, walk round the crescent and take the turning on your right leading to Mornington Terrace. Head up Mornington Terrace and you'll find the pub.
