Almost a year since I last visited this Young’s pub while working in the area I return on a Thursday evening with a few work colleagues.

It’s 6.15pm when I arrive here and the pub is packed. There are 5 ales on the hand pumps but the one I choose is immediately off so I go to the keg options and choose a pint of Meantime’s Fools Gold. A good pint but it’s slightly too cold for me, doesn’t stop me drinking it though and 2 further pints!

As reported on my last visit the pub is nicely decorated and is a very pleasant place for a few pints.

Not a great deal wrong with this one, indeed I used to be a consistent visitor prior to last year's refurb. Always a decent pint of Young's ordinary on tap at a good price for the area. Lagers inevitably more expensive, almost hitting £5 in some cases.

The sticking point is that I'm not fond of the recent trend spattering of 'craft' on anything and everything - the Spread Eagle is a case in point, now having 'Craft Pub and Dining House' proudly adorning its sign. Pray tell, Young's, what on earth is a 'craft pub'? It appears that they think this new word is worth a few bob, even when making nonsense out of names, as the case is here.

Decent boozer for Camden, atmosphere fine and prices okay if you stick to their own bitters. Don't touch the food if you want to keep your arms and legs.

Quiet on a Tuesday afternoon when I visited recently, a total of 4 punters and the bar man!

I went for a very good pint of Meantime’s Yakima Red @ 4.1%, this was against the range of Young’s beers they had on.

Still a very nice pub but I hope it’s not always this empty.

London and Britain in general fails again- after returning from abroad the whole British thing hits you like a steam train.....stress and beers available in equal measure! As usual with Wethys destroying pubs across the country, there is no capacity in here to sit down- and a small bar means no bar stools (due to the fight to the bar as UK requires). Stressy visitors to Camden no doubt shocked at the prices in this place add to a feeling of timebomb...we were asked not to sit next to two punters as 'they were expecting some friends'! Idiots. There is a good choice of beer including stuff from Camden brewery but the prices can hit ten quid for two pints- especially the continental lagers. At least there are crummy bar snacks- sausage rolls..usual tapas inglesas.....so good beer but nowhere to sit., stressed punters, bar service usual inattentiveness and the prices to make you faint...probably closes at 11 too...they let you drink outside though with a glass!!! which for Britain is amazing- also no bouncer on the door so these positives push the pub to a 5 - but if I were you I'd stay at home....

Large roomed pub which on our visit, had a fairly young customer base who were watching the football on numerous screens spread around the pub.
It is all bare brick, pipes and blackboards which advertise a large array of continental lagers and rums etc.
The beer would ordinarily be very expensive, however as this was a Monday night, all real ales, which included brews from Cottage Brewing and London Fields Brewery were on offer at £2.45, a substantial saving on their normal cost and which made good value.
All in all, a pleasant enough place, with a great offer on their ale on Monday nights
