You can’t miss it, it’s maroon. This much loved pub provides a home to all of Camden’s thriving booze hounds and musicians. It is an unshakable (despite its proximity to the rail track and a recent fire) institution, that has and will always be a loyal friend to those in need of a good time and a good pint. There’s a garden and a roof terrace for soaking up the sun/rain in summer, and some log fires to warm up by in winter whilst playing scrabble with your mates. So basically, it’s very accommodating.
Once the famed hang out of Amy Winehouse, it’s probably not as authentic as it used to be, but hey neither is much of Camden. Memorabilia is splashed across the walls, and the tattooed bar staff are a tribute in themselves.
The benches look like old church pews, lit candles poke out of Jaeger bottles and exposed brickwork gives it a chilled vibe. Glass jars full of sweets mingle with bottles behind the bar and a few TVs show anything important. Drink wine, beer or even Champagne and mingle. If you’re feeling puckish then the menu is beautifully British, so expect fish n’ chips, burgers and fish finger sandwiches. Go when bands are playing and you can’t beat it. Rock out!
