About the Pub

Triple winner of the CAMRA North London Branch Pub of the Year (2013, 2015 and 2018). After four years being closed, this community pub was reopened by the people that own the Pineapple. It has an L-shaped bar with comfortable stools, tables and seating. Eight Cask Real Ales and a selection of kegs and bottled ales regularly available.

As a member of CAMRA's LocAle scheme expect to see a good range from London's LocAle breweries. Traditional home-made food with speciality pies. Sunday roasts served from 12am (booking advised). Heated/covered beer garden is well designed and is a nice feature. Popular Wednesday quiz and live sessions of traditional music on Thursday evenings. Monthly tap takeovers and pop-up events. Listed as an Asset of Community Value in 2016. The house beer is brewed for them by (we think) Brakspear's, called Nelson’s Whiskers (after the resident cat). Disabled Access (Not W.C.), Family friendly (until 8pm).

Historic Interest

Local Camden Listing:- Mid 19th century public house on corner site at junction of Castle Road and Hadley Street. Important landmark building in the location where many roads meet and the railway viaduct dissects views. The area has a strong Victorian character despite many terraces having been replaced with later terraces; this building serves as a lynch pin to tie the surrounding streets together. Simple and restrained design with more decoration to the shopfront - applied pilasters and dentil cornice to the corner entrance bay.

Regular cask ales

This pub serves 1 regular beer.

  • Brakspear Nelson's Whiskers (4% golden ale)

Changing cask ales
