As a pre-gig venue, this isn't a bad shout if going to see a band at the nearby Roundhouse. The closer Enterprise is a good rock and roll pub but can get unpleasantly busy while this is tucked away just the other side of a railway bridge from Chalk Farm tube. That said, the presence of Doom Bar on tap immediately signals a pub where the beer isn't a priority while London Pride is a serviceable but uninspired choice. It's a well heeled neighbourhood and the other Primrose Hill hostelries tend to be Gastro with a capital G.

I think this is one of the nicer pubs in the area, living here for several years I think it has definitely become one of the top pubs to go to and it is a pub, some of the others are wannabe restaurants but I find if you want a good beer, catch up and they do do food - go to the Pembroke Castle, it had a refurbishment recently and it is better than ever. Always open and serving a good pint, thumbs up

Probably the best pub in the area, it has always been a good place to drink and eat but it had a make over about 6 months ago and it is now the best looking oub in my opinion, the staff are always lovely and they seem to know everyone, it is very busy at the weekend especially in the summer - I think it is worth going to see a good pub done well

Wow, I believe you should give credit where credit is due, this is such a lovely pub and I have seen it go from ok pub in the past few years to an out and out great local pub, thought every one should know how good it is :-) this place has had massive investment and boy you can tell, form outside to inside, toilets, woodwork and staffing - there seems more staff on and it it shows, such great service - table service if you want it or just stand at the bar and chat or get up and get your own drinks - its all relaxed but very slick operation, I think theyve invested in the menu because it seems so much busier on food, I eat there once in a while but s=just standing having a pint you see the guys and girls on the floor putting out loads and loads of food. such a great atmosphere, well done to them for doing it so well, a pub worth shouting about in an area that never seems to get it right with just a nice pub such as this has done so very well

Turned up in the evening and found a parking space right outside the pub. Suited us as we had just run the dogs in the park. Lots of people drinking outside, seemed ideal as we could stand outside and keep an eye on the dogs with the windows down. All fine and then after 10 mins a guy in a khaki shirt comes out and says no drinking outside.. No problem but no notices to say the same as at any other pub. Said OK and were getting dogs out of the car and this knob stands there with arms outstretched like some sheep dog while my wife and I got the dogs to take them into the garden. What the fuck is wrong with this man! We are in our 50's and journalists and surely not a real problem, but he stands there like the police have given him some special powers. Bit my tongue to be greeted with a garden tighter than an anchovie tin. Just drank up and left. Staff totally disinterested and very Camden with "server locking up" and several attempts to pay for drinks. You are welcome to this pub, waste of time. Staff just as up their arse as the "customers". Health and safety would require another exit in case of a fire than through the pub.
