Great pub with fantastic bar staff. Great court yard garden and it's only 5 minutes walk from Camden lock. Away from hustle and bustle down a quiet residential street. Quick pit stop for a quiet drink. Good selection of real ales if that's your drink.

Amazing cosy atmosphere. Had red wine at the bar and joined in the pub quiz. Lively yet not loud. The perfect atmosphere!

Always come here with my dad. Lovely staff, good atmosphere. Food can be up and down depending on what chef they have, usually a good roast though. Lovely locals and nice pub cat.
