I can't rate this place highly enough. The staff are so 'cool' yet friendly and welcoming that it feels like you're one of them. Always crazy busy in the evenings, live music, great food our fave new local. NB Seriously worth a visit for the wings alone.

I really liked this place an old pub, distressed furnishings and blues music, what not to like, well the food I guess if being picky. Great atmosphere, busy with nice fellow guests some great servers and good bar with nice beer. Wish I had gone in the evening when music was the focus because lunch was a big downside food... More

So, after eating here several times for dinner and being pleased, we decided to pop over for brunch. We called before and they wouldn't make a table booking. We did manage to get a table however. So, there were four of us, ordering various things. All of our food came at different times. Two of our sides didn't come until... More

I came in for some dinner the other day and have to admit I had a looovely evening. I came in for a first date and have to admit I was a bit nervous. But I had an amazing and attentive waitress who made us feel really comfortable by cracking a couple of jokes. The ambience is really fun and... More

I have been meaning to visit this place since one of my friends suggested i go. So as like any other avid user of TripAdvisor, upon suggestion, i sought the comfort of my culinary and holiday advisory sector. Now. In hindsight i would like to rubbish all them reviews about POOR SERVICE. What drivel! People turning up in clusters of... More

Popped in as my lovely guy wanted to show this place to me. Got a seat at the bar. Had a nice, but costly glass of prosecco and wished I'd gone for a cocktail instead given the care and attention the staff gave to them as they were prepping them. We didn't eat there but I'd definitely go back, eat,... More

Very rude staff... Pushed aside several times when waiting for our 'reserved' table that was not recorded!!! Refused to pay service charge as food order was messed up and no apology from staff. Told to eat off stools if we hadn't enough space instead of being offered another/larger table for our party of 11. Overall, the food was satisfying but... More

Camden has a really nice vibe and it's places like The Blues Kitchen which elevate a good night out to a great night out. Myself and my four close friends arrived a little after 8.30pm and straight away were made to feel welcome. The place was buzzing and the aroma of barbecued meat got the taste buds tingling. Our waitress... More

Came here for a friends birthday meal, we pre booked a table but when we arrived there was no table reserved. The waitress sat us in the bar area and we were told we could not have a dinner menu because we were in the bar. The manager then came over and he was incredibly rude and patronising, not once...

Neighbourhood Profile
Camden
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 Street and its tributaries can get during the weekends, this neighbourhood is right next to some of the city's most beloved outdoor spaces, namely Regent's Park and Primrose Hill.
