On Monday we teamed up with the Londonist to ask readers a simple question: what’s your favourite Kentish Town pub?
A pub, we explained, for these purposes, is any watering hole, from boozer to bar; and it was up to you lot to decide what the geographical parameters of K-Town are.
Little did we realise, just a few days later, we’d be ploughing through hundreds of responses, across a plethora of platforms: Twitter (the hashtag was #bestKTpub), Facebook posts and of course the lively comments sections of both titles.
Just missing from the Top 10 are NW5 stalwarts The Vine, Shebeen, the Lord Palmerston, Boston Arms and Quinn’s. But most surprising in its absence is local institution The Oxford, a pub which, once pioneering, may just have suffered with the rise of so many other places nearby.
Congrats to every pub that made your Top 10. If you want to attend the crawl, there are only 20 places, so email firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP. Rumour has it that the Kentishtowner team may also be in attendance, for review purposes only, of course.
