I was out at the dev on my birthday and had the worse treatment ever. I've lived in 4 diferente countries and I never ever saw any staff treating customers so rudely in my entire life. First I called the girl to say nobody was...More

To be honest I don’t think any metal bar can top the Dev in London! It’s very nice and cozy place, amazing staff and extremely friendly! Got few rounds of shots for free- and you think there’s no more nice people in the world! Definitely...More

Was taken here by a friend before a gig last year and loved it immediately. Great metal bar with a decent selection of beers. Have been another two times since and bought new people both times all of which have enjoyed the place. Without a...More

Rude staff and not very helpful. It seems that it bothers them that you are going there to consume something.

Great grunge metal bar. As you would expect from a metal bar. No toilet seats or toilet roll or working hand dryers in the ladies which makes me think maybe just men work there. But great pub!

An 'old fashioned' boozer - no food etc. Good selection of beers, spirits and tunes! Dark interior with some interesting posters on the walls and ceiling and plenty of tables and seats :) Just one minus point - no loo paper in the ladies :(

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
