The Elephants head is THE BEST pub in London. It's a proper, family owned Irish-English pub with loads of locals that welcome everyone into the bar. No gimmicks, nothing contrived. Go in, have a beer (maybe a dance) and enjoy a real pub experience.

Great pub with an eclectic mix of customers. Small venue but heaving at the seems. Basic drinks but you will have a good time here

Maybe I haven't been to many pubs in the UK, but this one is amazing. In the evening there was great music. You can dance. I recommend :)

Hadn't been in here for some considerable time and was so pleased to see that it hadn't changed. If you're visiting and want to experience a traditional pub in the middle of a bustling Camden Town, this is the place to go. Good beers and...More

I know and love Camden. This place is not in any way a reflection of Camden. Very unfriendly and hostile. Steer clear. Every staff member is dreadful, the door staff being the worst by far. Openly aggressive and do their job with relish.

First impressions are it’s a decent London boozer playing a good selection of music but that’s where the positives stop Service at the bar was poor and the food was awful. Fish & chips was terrible and the peas looked liked they dried out for...More

I love vintage music and vinyl so really wanted this place to work. Turned out the DJ was just some bloke from behind the bar using a playlist on a computer mixer. Very sad as I thought it would be authentic and have a real...More

Cool London boozer with great music and people dancing. Doorman on smoking area door very rude and some slightly unsavoury and aggressive characters hanging around outside. Not a place with a particularly friendly vibe to be honest. Much better pubs can be found in London.

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
