Lockdown Stories

Tales from the pub.

It's been a strange time for everyone adjusting to mitigation measures for the pandemic as they've changed over the past few months.

One of the first things we did was to launch the Reward Voucher scheme which many wonderful patrons have purchased, we thank you immensely for your support. You will be able to redeem them once we move to more normal operations.

We've also been selling craft beer for take-out and local delivery from the front door of the pub in reusable bottles kindly supplied by Caps and Taps in Kentish Town Road.

We've been featured both local and international press about what we've done to ensure we stay open in the future, from Camden and Kentish Town to the All-Nippon News Network in Japan!

We've been humbled by the support from the local community and wish you heartfelt thanks and appreciation, you're very welcome to make a booking and come in for a fresh draft beer.

Cheers! Kanpai! かんぱい! 乾杯!
