Had an ale here, was disgusting. I am Cask Marque trained and if this had been an inspection of the beer, it would have failed. We returned our pints of Ale to the bar, only to be told there's nothing wrong with it and the bar maid even took a slug of it and handed it back as-if nothing was... More

Came here with my partner Saturday lunchtime, he ordered a steak I ordered a burger. Firstly they put my burger through twice and overcharged him.

I visited the Bucks Head for a pint of beer on a Saturday Evening in Camden, and it was the worst pint of beer I have ever tasted. As a real ale drinker, I enjoy trying different real ales and the beer here was appalling! Totally disgusting.

Such a lovely pub, had been on my first date with my partner here and had a great experience 2 years ago. Unfortunately as well as a refurb, they changed all the staff. These are the worst, most rude staff I have ever come across. Worst experience in London by far. Stay away at all costs.

Not going back neither recommend it . Worst fish and chips I ever had. Service was a disaster. Prices for pub food like a chef restaurant.

Got kicked out at 6 for having children and had to wait in the street outside while my wife had a tattoo next door, during this time another family with young children sat down and were not asked to leave. Not happy.. Maybe it was something I said

They charge £3.25 for a small bottle of water - avoid out of principle! The atmosphere is dark and won't be visiting again. Shame as has so much potential.

Staying in Camden

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
