This place closed in January 2012 - now being converted to a cafe. Fortunately there are plenty of superior alternatives in the vicinity.

Ganger - Well done with your history input. Shame about the pubs nowadays.

Cheers,

Apparently this used to be the Windsor Castle.
Is anyone aware that there were 4 pubs in Camden, all named as castles representing the nations of the British Isles. They were the Windsor Castle, the Dublin castle, the Edinburgh castle and the Pembroke castle. The reason for this was because the Victorian railway builders (Navvies) came from the four nations, and to prevent fighting between the workers they built four pubs and named them accordingly. Irish navvies would drink at the Dublin castle, English at the Windsor etc. Thankfully three of the original names still exist, but the Windsor WAS re-named the NW1 a couple of years ago, presumably to attract the trendies who I would hazard a guess come into Camden rather than live there.
This is social/cultural vandalism of the highest order in my opinion and anyone who may consider drinking there should think twice.
Yes I did pop in a year ago for a quick beer and it was rubbish!

Not entirely sure what this place is supposed to be. Shows most sport and doesn't get as busy as the Sheep or the Mixer, so acceptable if you want to watch a game and everywhere else is packed.

Has a pool table right in the middle of the bar, which makes the bar area a bit cramped and makes it hard to play pool shots. They also do Thai food, although on the half dozen occasions I've been in I haven't seen anyone eating.

Odd mix of people as well. When I was in for the rugby it was full of loud supporters but there were couples sitting in the corner having a "quiet" drink (If I'd turned up with my girlfriend I would definitely take one look and go somewhere else).

Other than the fact it doesn't get too busy, there's no reason to come in here as there are several better pubs on Parkway

I had one of the most surprising nights of recent memory in this place.

I was having a bit of girl trouble, feeling a bit down, and met a mate at the bar to watch the football. We sank a couple of beers, watched Liverpool lose, then had another beer and spent an hour minding our own business and discussing life.

Then the manager fronts up, puffs out his chest, and says, 'Have you got a problem with me?' I didn't know the guy. I'd had nothing to do with him all night. I said I didn't have a problem with him. 'Have you got a problem with this pub?' he said. I had no idea what he was talking about. 'Umm, what?' Then he proceeded to let rip with the insults. He said I'd been 'walking around with my nose in the air, being rude to staff.' Then he said I'd been 'failing to acknowledge' - which is a little catchphrase I still don't understand.

For some reason I told him I was 'a bit depressed' and was 'just having a quiet drink.' Then he let rip again, telling me I was banned, I should finish my drink and get out. Pressed for an explanation he said I didn't 'fit the profile' of the pub, and I should 'go and be depressed somewhere else.'

It was like when the wrong player gets red carded for something nobody except the referee comprehends, and he just stares at the ref saying 'Me? Umm... Why? You sure? Me??'

The Thai food they sell is decent.
