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.

Summary of Beer Scores



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.
