About the Pub

A lovely and popular community pub. Saved from closure in 2013, the licensee and the local community, supported by Camden Council, waged a long campaign to prevent its conversion into flats. This came to its final and excellent conclusion with the sitting tenant buying the pub which he now leases out. Has lovely, tasteful decor complimenting its historical features, mainly its mirrored back bar. A real "back street community boozer". Darts and pool and five mins walk from the tube and overground station. Good juke box. Number of cask beers recently increased to three. Toilets (including disabled access and stair lift) are downstairs. Now operating a fully functional kitchen with an award winning chef, with a changing menu making great use of seasonal produce. Listed as an asset of community value (ACV) by Camden Council.

Happy "hour" Monday - Friday from 3pm-6pm, a selection of beers, wines and spirits for £3.50.

Historic Interest

Local Camden listing:- Public House on corner of Royal College Street and Pratt Street. Existing building, in red brick with stone dressings, substantially dates to the 1890s. A striking and characterful exterior, with an eclectic mix of architectural styles. It forms a strong focal point in the townscape on its corner site and relates in townscape terms to the residential terraces on Pratt and Royal College Streets.
