A dark, goth-like music pub tucked away behind Camden High Street. Itís a sister pub to the Earl of Essex in Islington. Good atmosphere and a good range of bottles. (Visited 5 August 2012).

A quite dark bar with that was a bit rough. A decent selection of casks/taps and bottles. Service was slow and the bar wasnít particularly busy. Prices were nice but I wasnít overly impressed.

Definitely my sort of place, a more than reasonable draft and bottled selection and White Zombie playing.

I donít quite know what to make of this place. The ambiance is generally great, but the whole hard rock vibe was punctured by the gratuitous presence of Springsteen on the barís playlist. The service is fine. The selectionís pretty strong. The bottle list may not offer 90 beers, but it does have some decent finds (Pannepeut, Clown Shoes stuff). Thereís no crap on tap, nice. The pricing was very strange. Some stuff was completely reasonably priced, other stuff was at a price point clearly higher than what the likes of Craft or the Euston Tap charge. Overall, Iíll keep my eye on this place and revise my rating in the future...

Stopped by for a pint, ended up with 3. Cool open yet traditional and old. Wooden floors and a horseshoe bar very good bottle selectionadn a great cask and draft selection as well. Did not try the food. Beers were cheaper than that Brash pub up the road and of similar quality. A very good pub that is right near the station.

Ok. First things first. You are not going to find much in the way of new scoops here. However, what you can be sure of is a bloody good selection of Scandinavian and American with a good lick of English and basically more than enough to keep you happy. This is one for those in the know. Honestly, youíre guaranteed a good night out here. I personally have bought some of the worlds beer elite here for Friday and Saturday night madness and the place has never let me down. Rock n Roll as fook all round. Josh really knows his stuff and everything is put together really well.
You want a quiet night, go somewhere else. You want quality music, great atmosphere and a small but superbly put together beer list. Come here. No joke, the Black Heart rocks.
Oh did I mention that Iíve seen some utterly amazing gigs upstairs. Yeah. Black Heart folks. I love this place.

No signage on the outside that we could see, just a black frontage, looked a bit salubrious, on the inside it is stripped out with wooden furniture and bare floorboards and a bit of a death theme going on, a place for vamires perhaps? However; the trepidation ended there, the welcome from the friendly bloke behind the bar was great, the cask beers were a good selection and well served. Better still, we were then shown the bottled beer list, which although quite pricey, was amazing in its range. This goes straight into our favourite London pubs list, great place.

On a back lane close to BrewDog & Camden Town Underground Station. Black on the outside, dark inside. A hard rock bar with 3 local cask ales available. Hard rock music played & 20% discount for CAMRA members. Satisfactory service. Worth stopping off at on the way to BrewDog.
