Good looking gastro-pub sited a safe distance from the main drag. The sterile atmosphere was made up for by extra friendly service, and there were two good ales on alongside fancy lager and mulled cider. However, this pub is so arse-achingly expensive that I could never recommend casual drinkers to visit. I'm no tightwad, but I resent paying over 4 for a pint of beer.

Also I wouldn't bother trying to strike up any conversation with the 'locals'. There were a few couples picking at their meals like forensic food critics, and a tragic middle aged man in designer knitwear playing a game on his phone.

Attractive corner pub with green tiling on the outside and large Charrington windows. The interior has lots of wood panelling. But the windows on 2 sides allow plenty of daylight in. 4 handpulls are available and I guess that they normally stock Youngs Special, Wells Bombardier and 2 guests. However on our Monday evening visit, there were no ales on at all. I can only assume that all had sold out during a beer festival they had held over the weekend. Addlestones is the only cider of note. Although the barman did say that they used to hold a couple of real ciders in polycasks on the bar. He said there may be plans to re-introduce these at a later date. A bit of a disappointment after visiting the Southampton Arms. But I will bear this one in mind if ever in need of liquid refreshment when I'm in Camden.

The beer, black sheep, was good here but the food left much to be desired. Old, reheated and over cooked with poor, grumpy service . Shame as it is a good location and nice building. G

Reasonable selection of ales including Black Sheep and Ruby Mild. Decent-sized space and doesn't seem to be totally given over to dining although there does seem to be a slant in that direction. Toilets are very clean which may seem a funny thing to post but it's sometimes quite a rare thing to find. Bar man called last orders at 10.30am though which is a bit odd. I know it was quieter and he was probably keen to get home but I'm sure he was being paid until the pub shuts so you have to stick it out!

I popped in just before xmas. A decent range of ale's were available and the service was good. The interior is nice and clean.
