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.
Rock/metal place tucked in the back alley. Decoration and ambiance according to the music played there, there are couple of interesting details when it comes to interior decoration. It’s quiet in the afternoon and quite loud in the evening. Considering it’s more music venue or sort of club than regular craft beer bar, selection is very good. Prices are bit on the high side. If you’re into this kind of music and want to drink craft this is the place to go.

From the outside I didnt even notice there was a pub. Let alone that they have a decent selection of beers. Several good beers on tap and a whole range of great bottles like Stone and some de Molen. Bar is like a hardrock-cafe with loads of 70s and 80s hardrock and glamrock. Actually, I didnt look at ratebeer before I entered, so was pleasantly surprised and had a great time! :-)
Dark, metal pub. Interesting bottle selection, along with about 15 taps (including 4 or 5 cask). Most british craft beers. Also a gig venue, where some former Motley Crue member was solo playing. Interesting and enjoyable if you are into hard-rock, metal.
The main hub for Desertfest, so visited frequently over the weekend. Large bar in a narrow street near Camden Town station. Great metal vibe, dark, a bit greasy, loud music, loved it. Decent selection of taps, mostly Camden and Brooklyn stuff, but also Weird Beard and De La Senne. Nice selection of bottled and canned beers as well, even had different beers in the fridge upstairs in the concert area. Prices were a bit on the high side, but just OK I guess (+-5 pound for a pint or 33cl bottled beer). Service consisted of tattooed rock chicks (dig that), and even though it was very busy they took the time to serve and even advise. I’d live here if this was in my neighbourhood.
A dark pub tucked away in the alley near the Brewdog entrance. Started out fairly well this place, always a good atmosphere here. Unfortunately the last 3 visits have seen this place decline. Service is generally slow, no fault of the staff - they are run of their feet. Just not enough of them, The cask beers have been in poor condition and I have seen a couple of punters return beers and have been tempted to do myself. They need to forget their brand image for awhile here, hire more staff and sort out the cask conditioning. Can’t see me bothering to go back until they do.
I like the whole metal vibe as it makes this place a little bit different. Always found something interesting to drink. Although, as mentioned in other reviews, the beer list tends to be out of date and the staff can be grumpy. However the main reason I drop in here is for pre-gig food. Was sad to find out the BBQ Brothers (?) are no longer supplying the grub (they led to me waking my wife up at 3:00am to tell her I’d had the best smoked beef sarnie ever) but they have been replaced by some rather nice burgers.
A dark, atmospheric, gothic-type pub with metal blaring. My kind of place. Or used to. Can’t say I enjoyed it much though perhaps the lack of local stuff and the poor choice of beer is what made it not so pleasant. Service was patient though a bit unfriendly since I didn’t like what they offered or what I sampled. A bit on the pricey side.

Good pub in Camden with many local beers available. 4 casks and 6 or so taps. Friend service and free wifi.
