North London's Cultural Guide

Old Eagle


Old Eagle (251 Royal College St) feels like a secret, although some would argue it belongs in Camden not Kentish really. A proper boozer with a mind-boggling variety of musical instruments dangling from its ceiling, it’s cosy by night, attracts a nice eclectic crowd of locals and hipsters, and its main USP is the £3 Bloody Mary (no mean feat round these ‘ere parts.) If you’re hungry, the Thai food is OK, but a bit oily.

Basically a good one to remember at weekends when it won’t be rammed with tourists or bridge-and-tunnel.
