As famous now for the fire which almost destroyed the place as the 'slebs who frequent it, the Hawley Arms has risen from the ashes and reopened. Inside, however, things look much as they have done for the last couple of years and on the surface it would appear to be a decent pub, complete with a first floor loungey bar and a tiny roof terrace. A mere stones throw from Camden Market, it was always reliable for a post-shop drink, but its increasing popularity means this isn't so much the case anymore. There's a breezy, chummy rather knowing approach to presentation which all seems carefully aimed at a young, hip demographic. We don't know whether the North London musical and media glitterati still flock here post-closure, but the aspirants of the aforementioned lifestyle still do, with more 80's sunglasses and manky hats on show than at a down market car boot sale. Indeed, the hanger-on quotient can reach fever pitch on weekends. Still, this is essentially a normal pub and if you time your visit right, you might just find some good ales, a fine jukebox and a bit of tasty food.

this pub is crap! if you havent got a pair of skinny jeans on and long hair, they dont want to know you and look @ you like a piece of sh*t, the staff are rude ( we got told to fu*k off round to the lock tavern) and the beers are overpriced and the food wasn't cooked properly. All in all avoid like the plague.
