One of the most popular pubs in Kentish Town - and with good reason.
Tucked away in a maze of backstreet terraces, this justifiably popular pub sits conveniently out of earshot of the Kentish Town bustle.
The bar counter will greet you before the aromas of Thai food: it’s an ornate, carved Victorian affair not three paces from the front door, with an impressive array of beery choices. Ales from Adnams, Redemption and Sambrook’s join Camden lagers, Beck’s Vier and Staropramen in the narrow space; beer festivals each Easter further extend the choice.
The joyously un-modernised main bar is framed by two corridors each side, with a conservatory housing a back dining area and a garden beyond it; decor is an easy-going mix of trad pub furniture and handsome contemporary touches.
The Pineapple is more of a drinking house than a culinary destination, though the Thai food and £5 lunches are decent value and seem to please the punters.
