You can’t get more convenient than this from a public transport perspective: it’s pretty much next door to Kentish Town West Overgound. It has a lovely, laid-back brewery tap feel, but the beer list does leave something to be desired. Except for the slightly rare Unfiltered Hells, there isn’t a lot here that you can’t find in any town in Southern England: Pale, Hells, Ink, Pils. They usually have IHL but that was unavailable. There were a couple of guests (Pressure Drop and Redchurch) but nothing earth-shattering. Worth going because it’s convenient and, well, it’s Camden: you know what you’re getting.
Hip place conveniently located under a railway station. Maybe a bit too designed. Looks good ánd clean though, has outside seating and a nice crowd. Decent beers, not too special though. Nice place to visit when near. Free popcorn, just ask. Visited during RBESG 2014.
Small downstairs seating area, didn’t venture upstairs, plenty seating outside & a couple of patio heaters (visited on a warm summer evening, so don’t know how effective they are). Standard Camden range that you get multiple places with a few specials, but not that exciting. Hard high stools inside, hard wooden benches outside. Chipboard walls, concrete floor, full of trendy types & a couple of families. Only half a female toilet for the entire place (i.e. one shared with men ... who have another whole trough to themselves). Come here if there’s a Camden beer you’re desperate to try. Otherwise, have a comfortable pint down the road at Tapping the Admiral where you can make friends with the resident cat. I’ve no plans to return here, it’s not for me.
Is an excellent place, but obviously, if you want to drink Camden, and their excellent beers, you won’t found a better place that their own brewery. They normally have the street food served, its a good solution....
Good place to visit.
Visited on a June Friday evening. Pretty handy for Kentish Town West station. You can hear the pub chatter from the platform.
Large under arch bar serving Camden Town beers. Picked up a couple of new beers on my visit and adverts for other pilot beers. Staff friendly. Place was busy but not packed. Definitely somewhere I’d go back to
Literally right below Kentish Town Overground station and about a 10-15 minute walk from Camden Town Station makes it very convenient.
Service is typical Londoner - nothing to brag about or complain. Staff is relatively helpful.
Selection is most of Camden’s core line, a few collabs, but not much else.
Food is usually a food stand out on certain nights and reasonably priced. Otherwise, you’ll have to go across the street and order Chinese take out.
What’s interesting is there Brewery Locals club which gives you discounts on their beers including regular growler fills if you like the beer that much.
Outdoor & indoor seating with heaters outside. Not bad but nothing great.
Modern stripped-down bar right alongside Kentish Town West station. Pale wood and glass. Everything on keg, no cask, couple of bottle options. Plenty of seating but people seem to crowd the bar. Halves, pints and pitchers. Can also get five (but no less!) thirds as tasters. Good place to try Camden Town’s lagers at their hoppiest. I thought that the beers were a bit over-carbonated, but they were certainly tasty.
