I wasn't planning to try this place. But I was a little too early for my planned pub in Camden. The Camden Eye enjoys a strategic place on the corner of Kentish Town Road and Camden Road, directly across from the tube station. Sitting in here is a good place for people watching. All manners of life stroll past and some of them stroll into the pub itself. It certainly has a varied clientele. Ales on were Watney's Pale Ale, St Austell Tribute, Wadworth Horizon & Camden Ale, which is actually Caledonian Edinburgh Castle re-badged and far from local!

My annual visit was a on a Sunday night for quick pint just before closing time

6 hand pumps, I had a pint of Watney’s Pale Ale @ 4.2%. A decent pint but spoilt by the music being too bloody loud….and I mean seriously loud.

Even though it’s opposite Camden Town tube station it’s really not worth a visit unless you want to burst your eardrums!

Used to be the Halfway House during the Britpop wars.

Not a bad pub, really. Yes the service is... random but the beer is OK (I went for the Tribute but it *just* went off so settled for the local Camden Eye Ale, which was serviceable).

Downstairs was very popular but upstairs was almost empty - perfect for what my friends and I wanted this time as we were catching up after a long time apart.

I popped in on a Sunday evening just before closing time for a quick pint after working locally.

6 cask ales on the hand pumps, my pint of Deuchars IPA wasn't the best and tasted a bit vinegary to be honest. In addition there were 2 Theakstons offerings on keg which were Barista Stout and Peculiar IPA, maybe I should of gone keg on this occasion.

Quite busy inside with a group of drunken Rugby fans making a fair amount of noise. I stayed for a pint then headed home, it’s very convenient for the tube station but there are better options for well kept ale in the area.
