Only came here after finding that the nearby Camden Town Brewery Bar was full to capacity at 6:30pm and turning potential customers away. This pub turned out to be a more than adequate fall-back.

The pub is found in Kentish Town, Greater London, NW5 3LG.

This pub was founded before 1866 as the Grafton Arms and for most of its history was a Charrington’s Brewery house. It is a large, street corner pub of late-Victorian appearance. Re-launched in September 2012, with an abbreviated name, the pub these days is a large single room with an island bar. There are also some pavement tables. The pub has quickly forged a good reputation for real ale and food.

We have visited this pub twice, seen 7 different beers and tried 2 of them.
