Day out in London and meeting up with daughter after work on a very hot summer day. Plenty of space in the garden and bar staff were friendly. Good selection of beers and a good spot if you are visiting Camden Market.

We headed to this place specifically for a pint and to sit up on the outdoor deck overlooking the market. The deck was closed which was disappointing for a day of 24 degrees in a tourist spot.

First time I have been here and I must say it’s a really good music venue even though it’s intimate but that’s never a bad thing. Staff are friendly and drinks prices are reasonable, I look forward to coming again soon.
