  1. The World’s End

Two bars, a mezzanine level, and a huge selection of beers, The World’s End is the largest pub in Camden with one of the longest histories.

Now under the management of East London Pub Co., Lock Tavern has an even more impressive bar and food menu than before. A huge beer garden at the back is a must-visit in the summer months, and there are regularly live music performances.

  1. The Elephant’s Head

Elephant’s Head is always a favourite among visitors to Camden. A perfect location, choice of drinks, and a fine history – it dates back to 1832!

  1. The Golden Lion

If you’re after good pub food, this one should be at the top of the list. Friendly owners, great service, and possibly the best Sunday Roast anywhere in London.

  1. The Devonshire Arms

You’ve not fully experienced Camden if you’ve not been to ‘The Dev’, Camden’s most metal bar. A place with attitude, you’ll soak up the environment.

  1. The Edinboro Castle

A comfy gastropub with plenty of space. The beer garden is one of the best places to be in the summer months. Always a good time at The Edinboro Castle. Definitely one of the best pubs in Camden Town.

  1. The Dublin Castle

Skip over to The Dublin Castle to see what the hype is about. Legendary bands have played shows at the music venue at the back. So much history all in one venue, make sure to add it to your Camden list of things to see.

  1. Monarchy

Building on the history of The Monarch, the new Monarchy pub in Camden has beer, food, and lots of screens.

  1. Camden Assembly

You might remember this as Camden Barfly. The Assembly still has the impressive music venue upstairs, regularly hosting local and international bands. The food from Burger & Beyond is worth the visit alone.


49 Chalk Farm Rd, Chalk Farm, London NW1 8AN

  1. The Grafton

The homely pub is spacious, warm, and has a good wine and beer menu, and serves food. It’s child and dog-friendly and the upstairs bar and roof terrace is a good place to chill.
