Came here last Wednesday for drinks and food with a few American clients.

4 pumps but only 1 ale on which was Adnams Southwold Bitter & to be honest it wasn't great, there was also a Sambrooks Junction clip facing the punters but I was told it wasn't on. After a ropey pint of Southwold I went onto Camden Pale Ale on tap which was excellent and very drinkable.

Sat out in the garden under shelter from the rain with the heaters on, it has a hidden gardens of Babylon feel to it!

The 7 of us took advantage of the burger menu and all of the food was excellent and well worth the money.

Busy inside and in the garden, nice atmosphere and all in all a very decent place for drinks in the evening.

a bit dark and dirty, the food looked very good, service with a scowl unfortunately

Judging from some of the previous reviews perhaps I did well to go here on a cold and miserable Wednesday night. It was still fairly busy tho, at 8pm but a lot quieter on my second visit an hour or so later. Naturally, being in Camden, there was a distinct lack of lighting, i.e. it was gloomy, and although I’m not a great fan of trendy sofa seating it was still comfortable enough. The highlight, as it should be with any pub, was the beer. Four handpumps, one was off but the other three had Purity, Twickenham and Redemption. I had the latter which was very good (both times!). OK, £4 isn’t cheap but I’d rather pay the extra few pence if it means getting a decent pint – from a smaller brewery too. It has the added benefit of being near to the Barfly music venue too, near enough, in fact, to get a beer in after the support band but before the headline act! (And one thing you can be sure of, if you want to drink decent beer and not pay too much over the odds you would certainly choose the Lock Tavern over the Barfly!)

If you are forced into drinking on the main drag in Camden or going to a gig at the Roundhouse this is a good place to go, but it still makes all the usual mistakes typical of this area. Downstairs always seems clogged up with grumpy North London loudmouths perched at the bar making it a pain in the arse to get served, and the main seating area is all big couches; it's amazing how much space they take up compared to how few people they can seat.

Walk through the pub into the beer garden and things get much better, and upstairs is another bar and terrace with a DJ. They serve food but I wouldn't bother. The barstaff are friendly but slow.

Beer! Maybe one ale on, otherwise Meantime Pale Ale or usual 'premium' lagers etc. Rubbishly expensive, especially since they admitted that they put the prices up at weekends ("standard thing in London"!?!).
