Boudicca  (1035) London, England | October 25, 2015
A large, open plan, fairly traditional London pub with gastropub aspirations, as evidenced by the clipboard menus and numbered paint tins containing paper napkins on each of the tables. The menu looked quite appealing - sandwiches, burgers and a small number of more elaborate main courses. There are eight hand pumps (three of which were off when we visited), around twelve keg taps and a few bottles. There was a board outside advertising “Das BierFest”, apparently their third annual beer and sausage festival which was due to take place later in the month. (Visited 9 September 2015).

Visited on my way to see the mighty Bluetones at the Forum on September 24th 2015. Really nice feel to the place, had rugger on the big screen and a decent range of London cask beers. Pint I had was in decent condition and so it should be at £4.20! Staff were decent enough. Food looks a little pretentious and expensive too although didn’t try it. There’s a lot of better places to try locally but it’s a nice place to drop by for a pint.

This is a big, spacious pub. It has had the slightly generic revamp - vaguely vintage furniture, a handful of real ales and craft beers, over-loud music, semi trendy clientèle mixed with other locals and a few old-timers. Lucky Chip are doing the food at the moment, and lovely burgers. Beers wise there are Camden Town larger and pale ale on draft, plus the wheat beer in bottles, and a small amount of British, Belgium and American bottled beers. The upper room was very loud when full but better when it emptied out. Might be nice pub at a quieter lunchtime for a few pints. Decent but not amazing. Quite expensive (£4.40 for Camden larger seems excessive when it’s just up the road).

Very nice place aesthetically. The beer range, however, is so so. They had some London breweries on tap (ELB, Hackney, Brodies) but mostly bitters and golden ales. They also have what seems to be a permanent Camden Pale keg line. Pints are fairly expensive (upwards of £4 per). The bartenders are friendly. Maybe worth a stop if you’re in the area, but this is not a destination pub.

Just reopened this month under new management. Traditionally-furnished corner pub with an island bar. Seating is mainly table-and-chair. Tastefully decorated in two-tone green. Up to 6 real ales will be available - presently three were avaliable on my visit of 21st September. Micro-breweries to feature. Camden Pale available on Keg. Food served (and was delicious) - I was confirmed the pub’s first diner, but please check with pub regarding food because their website now says the kitchen is currently closed. This pub has been transformed from a virtual no-go to a pub for all. Well done to its new owners. Also note two worthy nearby venues - Tapping The Admiral and Camden Town Brewery Bar - a three-venue crawl is easy.
