About the Pub

Beautifully preserved, Grade II listed and CAMRA Heritage Victorian pub with dark blue upholstery, a small snug bar and etched glass snob screens in place above the bar. These frosted screens were popular in the 1890s hiding the customer from drinkers in other rooms, but the hinges still allowed the bar staff to check on them without disturbing their privacy. The glorious history of the pub and area is also commemorated by an original working polyphon (predecessor to the gramophone) which can be played in aid of charity and sepia prints of music hall players. The upstairs Empire Bar (One handpump for Bitter) is also available for hire. Seating available in the small rear garden, enhanced by mirrors. Food served with changing specials from 12.00 - 21.00. No TV and, other than the polyphon, no music. Quiz Sundays 7-10.

There has been a recent change in management so it is not yet clear if the house beers previously available, either from Sharp's or Redemption, will continue to be stocked. There was also only one cider available in Jany 2019.

Historic Interest

Grade II listing:- CAMDEN LAMB'S CONDUIT STREET (East side) No.94, Lamb Public House 02/08/73 GV II Public house. First mentioned in 1731 but front of building probably mid or late-Georgian or later. Yellow stock brick, slate roof. Four storeys and cellars. Four windows wide with splayed angle at north end bearing parish boundary marker dated 1831. Upper storeys Georgian, ground-storey in form of pub front basically Victorian but with Edwardian faience tiling added in two shades of green. Painted fascia with the legends 'The Lamb' and 'Wine and Spirit Establishment'. Good hanging iron lamp bracket with lantern attached at first-floor level. Rear much extended. INTERIOR of pub with match-board walls and ceiling. One main area with fixed seating round perimeter and U-shaped bar in centre retaining snob screens with moveable glass panels and engaged with four thin cast-iron columns having palmette capitals. Two similar columns behind front help support upper portions of front. Staircase at rear of building part of 1958 refurbishment of public house, when partitions formerly dividing the front area into two private bars were removed. The lobby partitions were inserted at this time. What remains is an exceptional piece of 'Victoriana', where the real late C19 interior was enhanced by the restoration. Some snob screens are original, others part of this restoration. Partitioned area at rear of right-hand bar with late C19 partitions; this was originally the pub's office.
