I like this place but canít pin down why. Iím drinking Westmalle Tripel put of a slightly fingerprinted half-pint glass while listening to Hall & Oates! What more do I need to say? Friendly service by London standards. Lots of handpumps but only 3 active when I came in. Reasonable selection of Belgians.

I think this place has gone way down hill over the last few years. I had heard decent things about Quinns and although it was not a bad pub to go to, it was just above the average boozer for me. Good amount to German beers all in Bottles behind the bar. This was probably Quinns best atribute as I enjoy German beers and they had some Rauch Bier in bottles as well. Service was a mixed bag, one younger guy was cool but the older guy was a bit surly. Selection was good but on my first visit they lost the key to the Belgian beer fridge, this was pretty piss poor and on my second visit the selection of Belgians was not as varied. THe British beer was average Fullers/Green King Etc. Nothing to be excited for. Did not try the food.
If you are in Camden and want to make the effort, it is a 10 min walk from the station and the bright Yellow and Purple canít be missed.

Always like going here, much more pleasant than most places in Camden and not full of Camden types, more a locals place. The Belgian selection is variable from the very good to occasionally not so good. Always a surprise though, and normally a mix of more obvious stuff and some more unusual things (Troubadour, Dupont). Unfortunately they donít have the excellent selection of Drie Fonteinens any more, havenít done for a few years. Shame! Price is £4 for bottles at the moment which compared to other places is pretty good. Stays open very late so you can get in a lot of trouble here. Really love the Nepalese barman. He is a star!

Weíve always had a good time at this pub. A few cask ales and a decent bottle selection, focusing on German and Belgian beers. A few good go-to beers but light on the rarities. Service can be a little slow but the barman is getting on a bit ; P

A huge place with wood panelling and lots of booths, but the floor is lino and the cealing is painted yellow, and the deco is old and dusty. A Green King place, but mainly focused on continental imports, which are decently priced at 4 UKP in 2010, while the cask is London prices. Old people go here to have their Sunday roast - maybe because the owners are so old that the lived in the middle ages - which gives them the right to tell the younger and service minded staff off in front of the punters and not serve people who bring a pc to the bar, so they only managed to supply me with one new GK and a German weissbier. I hope new ownership is coming in soon. Iím not to return untill then.

Only Greene King on casks. Some German and Belgian bottles. Quite cozy. Nothing exceptional though.

A fun pub all round. A strong selection of German and Belgian bottles, with a decent number Iíve not seen before. Itís not crazily expensive either. Friendly staff and the bar is looked after by a couple of old timers. Brilliant.

A great place. A sublime service from the the owners, who looks like theyíve lived and breathed the place for more than fifty years. Good selection of Germans, a bit disappointing selection of Belgians. A fine array of Greene King casks as well as the usual macro-swill on tap. We had a wonderful Chili Con Carne - spiced just to perfection. Great and cosy place.

My first pub in london. Alround a different experiance to what i expected, far bigger than i thought, but at the same time not too much seating area. Good selection of beers, though by the end of the nite id tried every different thing they had and all the cask beer had finished. An unusual mix of people in here there was some leaving party group up the back and also a few groups of gothís. Intresting place indeed.
