“fun british pub”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

it gets super busy because of its location at the Camden market, but the drinks are good, and the pub is an awesome building.

“Nice Breakfast”
Reviewed 22 March 2014 via mobile

Nipped in the Elephants Head for a full English breakfast after a heavy night out. Was greeted by staff just as we walked in. Managed to get a nice table in the corner of the pub. Ordered food quickly, and a basket of toast came out within 5 mins. Breakfast followed 5 mins later.

Was a very nice breakfast, priced very reasonably for London (£7.75 if I remember correctly). Sorted out my sore head!

Didn't award 5 stars as the seating is rather limited (we appeared lucky to get a table) and the decor is quite basic (but I suppose the basic look gives it that rustic feel!)

Overall would recommend.

“Great Atmosphere.”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

I visited here for two pints on a Saturday night and found it to be a brilliant pub. Good beer, reasonable priced and also a great atmosphere.

“well worth a stop off!”
Reviewed 16 December 2013

Me and my boyfriend stopped here for a break from shopping for a bite to eat. We were really impressed with the food that we were served, especially for the reasonable prices! The food was good quality and tasty and my boyfriend enjoyed the lager served here. It was warm and cosy and felt very festive inside. Would definitely stop here again when in Camden.

“Moody bar person spoiled this pub”
Reviewed 13 November 2013

Went in for a bite to eat and a pint on a recent visit to London, food and drink both okay but one of the bar staff was clearly having an off day. She was being rude to the customers, making cheeky comments about customers loud enough for us to hear and banging drinks down in front of people. This stopped us staying for another drink! Location of pub is excellent it should be noted
