So I’ve been promising posts on the Secret Pubs of Camden – and here is número uno!
Their very smart front garden area.
A couple of years ago I hosted Gin Club with a Reading Problem here and we tried some of their 60+ gins. Unfortunately the fun of gin tasting was let down by over enthusiastic tonic-age (too much and too strong – drowning the gin flavour), so now I try to minimise the potential damage (order doubles and pour your own tonic).
The steaks were also pretty amazing – that same evening I had dinner with about 16 people for my birthday after we were finished drinking the gin… it was drunken!
Lunch offers are a bargain!
So when I walked past the menu the other day I literally salivated – but on the pub crawl we were only there for drinks 🙁 I am VERY excited about their Saturday brunch 11am-5pm (incredibly civilised hours!). On Sundays there are roast dinners from 12pm, so need to go back try the food out again!
Anyway back to the gin-age. This was their special of the week, a local one, King of Soho in an oversized goblet (the best kind!) with grapefruit and tonic – yum!
