Stumbled across this place walking through Kentish Town. Nice friendly place, very decent beer selection, especially from London breweries. If you were just going to travel to one place then as others have mentioned you go to see Kris Wines, but this is perfectly decent for a quick trip and easier by public transport.

A small, old fashioned off licence where, unusually, the beers are most prominent - the wines are tucked away in an alcove at the back. The selection was pretty good, with some more obscure breweries represented. (Visited 9 September 2015).

Nice old style outdoor. Lots of beer in the window from local London brewers plus a bit of stuff from farther afield. Itís not a world shattering range but Ok. Prices didnít seem too bad. Beer in the window which probably wonít do the hops the world of good.

From the outside itís just a normal somewhat shabby Newsagent/Off License, but inside itís wall to wall ale and craft beer. The selection is vast and the range from each brewery is also pretty impressive. Some commenters have criticised its range but as of 2013/2014 it is still able to offer a wider variety then many so called Ale pubs or bar. The other major draw is the price around £1.70-2.70 for each bottle. I live south of the river but still commute for its goodness.

The place looked kind of shoddy, but I was mesmerized by the selection of bottles, both local and international, good and awful beers. The owner was nice too, and the prices were fair.

This isnít a bad bottle shop. They have a nice range of British beers; German beers are the second most represented, followed by American and Belgian. This is probably the third best bottle shop Iíve seen in London. The selection is not nearly as good as Kris Wines and probably just slightly worse than Utobeer. The selection is probably a little better than Drink of Fulham. One shortcoming of this place is that two of the walls are just windows, so a lot of this beer is getting significant sun exposure, which cannot be good. Kris Wines is not very far away from this place, so Iím guessing the typical beer hunter would only choose one place to go (and that one place should rightly be Kris Wines). For those Londoners (or particularly intrepid visiters) interested in trying out a new shop, this place is worth visiting.

I had visited this shop about three years ago and the range then was far more comprehensive. At that time they had a very good range of german beers, none of which exist now. The selection is also poor, with for example Coopers original Ale, possibly the dullest in the Coopers range, being the only one on offer. Beers from other countries tend to be more ícommercialí examples of what they have to offer rather than quality brews. All in all not really worth a visit at present, and it would be good to see it return to its previous form.

A welcoming off-licence, close to Kentish Town West Overground station, keeping a vast range of bottled English ales and selection of imported bottled beers going into 3 figures. In addition, a comprehensive range of spirits and fair wine range kept. Fairly well-known in the neighbourhood, but also attracts discerning customers from further afield. Prices are not too bad, either. Accepts debit/credit cards. One of Camdenís best off-licences (beer stores).
