This large pub and larger beer garden probably benefit from not being too close to the hurly-burly that is Camden Market. It's been modernised inside, with zebra-stripe wallpaper and curtains of hanging beads amongst the soft furnishings. It feels more designed, though, rather than just a bunch of furniture bought at a junk sale, and this helps give it a relaxed atmosphere. It's obviously working hard to appeal to a certain clientele, with fresh cut flowers scattered around and a decent mostly new world wine list. You can still get a decent pint here, with a couple of ales on the hand pumps (kept to Cask Marque standards), and a selection of continental beers and lagers. There's a reasonably priced menu, unpretentious pub food, and the prices overall are pretty reasonable - which many well be be owner M&B's conscious effort to drawn in punters in difficult times. The big attraction here for most people however, is the unusually large beer garden, which can become heaving if the sun shines, especially on weekends.

7 mins walk from Camden tube but a world away from the madness that is Camden high street.



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.

Three pints is inordinately generous for this most gastro of gastropubs. In fact, you’ll have to go a long way to find a more gastrophic pub-style drinkery.



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.
