Bad service and bad food. Obviously a bad day for the staff. And it did not get better when the food arrived. Soft fries and an ordinary burger. Staff looked like they wanted to be anywhere else but there. I guess this pub survives because of the location close to Camden Market.

Went here yesterday for a couple of cocktails before heading into Camden Market. It was the 2nd visit for me and I knew my friends would like this pub. Added bonus was the great value 2 for £9.50 cocktails. Both times I've visited the staff have been friendly, the pub has been clean and it has a nice atmosphere. Would... More

The worst meal on this London trip. Ordered Salt beef Reuben burger, and recieved an ordenary burger, with soft cold fries. Clearly the fries were made in advance. The waitress was not able to take the order, I asked for no gherkins, but ended up with a lot of them. But the pickled onion were missing! ;) About the beer,... More

Popped in for a couple of pints while waiting for the Electric Ballroom to open for a gig - Evil Scarecrow - and was pleasantly surprised. The place was very busy but I was served in less than 5 minutes. The drinks on offer vary from the usual suspects - rank lager and the popular ciders, to craft ales and... More

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

Popped in whilst on a visit to London from Scotland for an international football game. When we went in, we asked about themthe cocktails and immediately handed the cocktail menu. Barman very patient whilst I made my choice ! Two cocktails for £9.50 and great choice - not a choice from 6 or 7 like some pubs!! Great service, great... 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. Secondly when the food finally did come out his steak looked like it had been sat under the heater for a few hours so he sent it back, my burger was so greasy, it's a... More

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.

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.
