I was out at the dev on my birthday and had the worse treatment ever. I've lived in 4 diferente countries and I never ever saw any staff treating customers so rudely in my entire life. First I called the girl to say nobody was...More

To be honest I don’t think any metal bar can top the Dev in London! It’s very nice and cozy place, amazing staff and extremely friendly! Got few rounds of shots for free- and you think there’s no more nice people in the world! Definitely...More

Rude staff and not very helpful. It seems that it bothers them that you are going there to consume something.

Great grunge metal bar. As you would expect from a metal bar. No toilet seats or toilet roll or working hand dryers in the ladies which makes me think maybe just men work there. But great pub!

If you want the Camden experience in its pursst form then look no further than the Devonshire. While a lot of American style heavy metal bars in London run the risk of feeling a little kitschy/gimmicky, the Dev is and always has been truly authentic....More

Wanted to go here after spotting it on TripAdvisor. Really enjoyed it! Interesting people, decent range of drinks and great music - if you like heavy metal of course. Great interior of posters and pictures, bands etc. Would have loved to be there at the...More

An 'old fashioned' boozer - no food etc. Good selection of beers, spirits and tunes! Dark interior with some interesting posters on the walls and ceiling and plenty of tables and seats :) Just one minus point - no loo paper in the ladies :(

Famous for its sprawling cluster of markets and shops
as well as for an embrace of all things counter
culture, Camden offers a concentrated version of
London street life. From bargain shopping and people
watching to rubbing elbows in its abundance of pubs
and bars, Camden is the place to be for many a
Londoner. It is also home to some of the hottest live
music venues in Europe. As packed as Camden High
