Relatively well placed for Camden Town, Primrose Hill, Regent’s Park and ZSL London Zoo, this big pub, recently made over as part of the unbranded Castle chain, is worth knowing about as a spacious local option with some decent beers. A major plus point is a large and luxuriant garden, a rarity in these valuable acres, and its laid back, comfortable vibe is well appreciated by a largely younger crowd, though it doesn’t quite hang together as a first rate pub.

Pure Ubu, Doom Bar and London-brewed Urban Dusk are the regular casks, while guests might come from Hopdaemon or Rooster’s. Also local are Camden Town Hells and Meantime Pale Ale on keg alongside beers from Bernard and BrewDog. Flying Dog, Goose Island and Worthington White Shield enliven the bottled choice, and occasional beer festivals may boost the range still further. Food is sub-gastro stuff – wild salmon fishcakes, free range sausage and mash, asparagus and mushroom tart – competently done, with a good value fixed price deal on selected dishes.
