Another old fashioned looking pub tucked away just off Camden Town.

As you approach you notice the large front seating area with benches before going inside to the very open plan area and the bar to your right.

3 ales on and I went for a pint of Revolution’s Signature Pale @ 4.1% It was a decent pint.

Lots of bar staff but most of them were in a state of bewilderment and it took a few glances from me to get recognised, there were only 2 other people being served!

I was informed that this is THE place for Gin in the area and judging by the selection of Gins listed on the blackboard this is certainly the case, however I didn’t try any.

There’s also a garden out the back.

An unexpected and fortuitous find in a largely residential (and publess) area. I nearly missed it as its sign is not all that clear and the large external blind (like a shop's) masks much of the front of the pub. I am glad I didn't walk by.

A nicely laid out pub with plenty of tables for diners and with with friendly and efficient staff. There is a good selection of home-cooked food made from fairly local ingredients (the sources are shown on the menu - a very commendable thing). My "Faucett Lamburger" was all that one could have wanted.

Neither the food nor the beer were especially cheap - but we are talking London prices, of course, and I can't complain about the value.

For those who wish to emulate the eponymous Colonel and sample his favourote tipple, gin, there is a very fine selection (32 at the time of my visit). I didn't sample any myself as I am an ale drinker and I was pleased to find 4 beer engines, all connected. The predictable nationals - Sharps and Adnams - took up two of the engines, but the other two dispensed ales from local brewery, Trinity. I tried both and they were in top condition. I would have preferred a greater choice of beers - but I am really nitpicking from the standpoint of a lifetime ale enthusiast.

Definitely recommened.

The pic is accurate. Staff helpful. Glad if found it.

Used to be the Camden Arms, the bar has moved over to the side and it feels much lighter than it was. My family used to run this place 1848-1867. Upstairs room looks great and can be accessed up the new staircase though the 19th century spiral staircase is still there (not for use if you are tipsy)

Charming & efficient staff and the food was great, I had lamb cassrole with parsnip mash & Kale washed down with Stowford cider, other half had herb crusted cod with aper potatoes, creamed leeks & shredded kale (bloomin' nice apparently) & lager.

Had to sample a gin so had a Sipsmith & tonic to toast Col Fawcett. Well done to all concerned, wish I lived closer!
