Where do N1C locals go?


A BrewDog pub just off Camden High Street serving craft beers.


A great burrito place that usually gives out tasters every day.

The Lord Stanley

Just off Camden Road, this pub does the best sausage and mash!

The Blues Kitchen

This American themed restaurant is fantastic! Not only is the food very tasty, but the atmosphere is electric - live music on a Friday and Saturday and distinctive tasting cocktails draw in a big crowd.

The Underworld

One of the best venues for rock and metal bands and club nights opposite Camden Town Underground Station.

Camden Coffee Shop

Coffee beans from a lovely old man who roasts the beans himself and has done for decades. He will also grind them for you...

The Jazz Café

The Jazz Café is the place to go to watch big musical stars be born! Eat and listen to fantastic artists all in one place.

Orange Juice Stall

A small stall based on Camden High street offering freshly squeezed orange juice, either bitter, sweet or sour. The sweet oranges are amazing!


An alternative fish and chip restaurant selling a tasty British classic with unusual culinary twists.

Ferreira Delicatessen

The best toasted sandwiches in Camden made to order and excellent Portuguese custard tarts.


Delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner in French-style interiors. They do a fantastic set menu too, which is a real bargain.

Anima e Cuore

From the outside, Anima e Cuore looks like a gelateria and café, but this teeny tiny restaurant serves amazing Italian food at a very reasonable price. The menu is read by the waiters and changed daily. It books up very fast and it's BYOB!


Serving organic food and drink ideal for a quick brunch. Wholesome meals, delicious salads and a variety of smoothies that are nice too.

The Coffee Jar

The best coffee in Camden along with some great sandwiches and cakes.

Edinboro Castle

This pub has an amazing beer garden that is great during the summer months!
