One of the most popular pubs in Kentish Town - and with good reason.
So great is Kentish Town’s love of the Pineapple that when the pub was threatened with redevelopment into flats in 2002, locals started a campaign to save it – and got the place listed by English Heritage in just eight days. This backstreet boozer dates back to the mid-nineteenth century, and you can feel the history in the weathered wood of the joyously unmodernised main bar. There’s also a conservatory at the back, and outdoor tables when the weather’s good. The Pineapple hosts a variety of special events, including semi-annual beer festivals, but it’s at its best on an ordinary weekend, when the locals crowd in for a pint and a gab-fest. And there’s cheap Thai food if you want to settle in for the long haul.

Hidden gem with great selection of cask ale and warm fire places perfect for a winter's evening.
Very friendly staff and a charming cat called Spongebob I believe. Will make this my new local in the for sure.
Stepped in for a pint to get out of the rain and was pleasantly surprised by this gem of a pub. Not only was the beer garden beautiful, but the food was some of the best thai I've had. Great weekdays specials, reasonably priced drinks, and a great staff are just some of the reasons this pub is fantastic.
Make sure to say hi to the two pub cats - Spongebob and Patti.
Favourite London boozer. Excellent selection of drinks and a top-notch Thai. Couldn't ask for a better pub.
If you want just one word to sum up the Pineapple - Family. The first day I moved to Kentish Town I was recommended there by a smiling local and I have never looked back! The right place for all ages and backgrounds. A locals local.
Really great local pub; fun atmosphere; great beer garden; friendly bar staff and excellent quiz. Patronise it at least once a week or more. Always recommend.
Excellent friendly, welcoming local, marvellous ever changing beer selection & even better bar staff. Top haunt
The best pub in London by a long shot! If you want to go somewhere where the staff bother to learn your name and make you laugh it's the place to be! An awesome hidden treasure!
I love this pub, it's perfect for cosy nights, Friday food with friends, summer garden beer drinking, it's perfect for every occasion! The food here is such great value, really fast and fresh, best prawn toast I have ever eaten!!!
Excellent £5 thai lunches cooked well and full of flavour. Great selection of Beer at the bar as well, highly recommend this pub.
Not a bad pub by any stretch of the imagination, but I feel the hype around this place may be its downfall as I fail to see what people find so incredibly appealing about it. Having been twice I've found it very busy and not a little bit cramped. The ale selection isn't huge. Whilst fine, there's quieter; more spacious; and more plentifully stocked bars in the area.
The pineapple is a lovely pub that plays great music and has a great atmosphere in a good location. They do really nice wine but the food lets them down.
Excellent pub with a particularly good quiz on a Monday evening. Good selection of real ales and lagers which are competitively priced. The food is reliable without being spectacular.
great place and in an area with many a good standard rivals; for real ale, wine and all, welcoming staff, happy vibes and friendly cheer, it's a definite favourite - a local for all (thank goodness I only live up the road and my bus home from work stops nearby!)
