    Like it in their me, always good tunes on in the background. Plenty of characters about. Don't mind Hawley Arms anarl if it's not heaving.

    “Characters”, aye. Absolute freaks you mean.

    Hawley’s full of lads in fedoras and Amy Winehouse fans.

    Tbh, find Camden overrated as fuck in the main.

    Camden is dreadful. Kentish Town is fine.

    Camden lock way is past it’s best imo, the good mixer has shut down and the Hawley arms is a glorified Indy disco.
    Best part of Camden is head up parkway to spread eagle, Dublin castle and Edinburg castle.

    Quite like it round Putney area, one of the reasons Fulham is my favourite away day.

    The Hawley for Camden, used to go to Dublin Castle for gigs but not been in for years. The Vine and The Junction for KT. A bit further up the hill toward Tufnell Park you have the Dartmouth, the Lord Palmerston, and the Bull and Last

    Pretty much a restaurant, can’t just turn up for a pint.

    If we’re going that for north might as well hoy in the Southampton Arms, which isn’t worth doing to unless you like real ale and cider.

    Yeah? Not been in for a long time - early 2000s. The Dartmouth was my local - had good beer, a trivia night, footy on tv, and a landlord that looked like Eddie Izzard. The Southampton is the one just after the bridge as you go up Highgate Rd?

    The elephants head is decent enough, hawley arms used to be ok. The answer is as posted just previously, the Southampton Arms. I used to live over the road from there when it was a bit different to how it is now :lol:

    Lived on Chetwynd which is pretty much over the road a little higher up - still crash there when I'm back in the UK

    Shot of what there mate? Is it a gunshot there?
  19. I don’t like to feel I’ve been robbed though. It’s mental down here with outer London prices in lots of places. That’s not reflected in the wages of the staff either
