Food is nice here, but if you're going for lunch on a lunch break you won't be making it back in time. Takes forever. Worst Old Fashioned ever. Suppose wouldn't expect good cocktails in an American BBQ place but they shouldn't be charging £9 for what tastes like an over sugared glass of water.

As an American that thrives on BBQ and smokes meats, if you're like me, this is your place in London. We had the 2 meat sampler with an additional order of fried chicken. The beef rib was OUTSTANDING. The fried chicken and Mac and cheese would stand up to any place in the states. Not to mention the live music... More

Perfect spot to stop for brunch on a weekend. They have a special menu with a lot of choices: wings, mac and cheese, burgers, chicken... The food was excellent and the portions big. Great atmosphere too and a lot of drink choices

Given that Camden has hundreds of eating options, it's speaks volumes that we regularly frequent Blues for our lunch. Big portions at an fair price. All the staff are always friendly and chat, typical trendy.

Came here on a lovely date...! The food was delicious! Loved the brisket, soft and tender - cooked to perfection. The squid and macaroni cheese was also amazing. Wicked customer service from some guy with a beard. He knew the menu well! Would definitely return. Two bad points though.. drink prices are ridiculous .. especially when I could hardly taste...

Great and friendly service as soon as you enter, the menu also has gluten free choices but you have to ask the waiter to find out what they are as they're not clearly marked. We ordered a sharing platter for 2 and it was delicious, and so copious that we could not finish it all... The decor is lovely and... More

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.
