The Camden Eye
Time Out says
Few Camden boozers are this well placed - you could easily stumble in as you exit Camden Town tube. Handily there's a lot going on should you do so, from comedy and open mic nights to DJ sets and sports screenings.
The food menu combines classic pub grub with fish and chips (popular) and dude food bits and bobs - think burgers, Philly steal sandwiches and hot dogs. It's the pizzas, cooked in an authentic wood-fired oven and all a tenner, that do the briskest of business. There's even one designed for hangovers, with an egg and mozzarella base topped with Cumberland sausage, black pudding, tomato, mushroom, bacon and baked beans. That should do the trick.
And to lubricate all the happenings? A solid range of ales (they're cask marque accredited) and a wine list with every bottle available by the glass.

We had booked a table for 10 originally and when we turned up they had completely forgotten about our booking and they refused to give us a table for nearly an hour until we simply took a table of our own to sit at. Awful administration.
When we finally sat down to eat and drink, the food in this place was barely edible, the music was awful, and the place was suffused with a smell of vomit and beer. On top of that a mentally unstable bartender with ponytails started yelling at us telling us to leave immediately because she had not heard us say thank you (even though we had said thank you) for our last three drinks.
This is the worst pub I have visited in my entire life and I am happy to say that I will never come back to this pub again in the future. I recommend anyone trying to have a good time to stay away from this place.
I've been called to eat pub food in various parts of London before and always been disappointed, but drunk, because it's difficult to keep a passable bar and do good food on top of that but the Camden Eye pub may be an exception to the rule. While I couldn't beg my way upstairs - it being fully booked - we were very happy to sit in the pub, drinking cider and waiting for our table to become available. The bottles behind the bar looked very friendly and soon proved themselves pub-worthy and the only thing we lacked was chairs. As soon as these had been wrestled from other patrons (it was exceedingly busy for a Thursday night) we sat (then everyone seemed to leave) and took a look at the menu. Whilst the restaurant menu looks impressive and delicious - one day - the pizza list was enough to keep us occupied and indecisive for a good 20 minutes before picking as many different types as we could devour and ordering at the bar.
Spent 3 hours in here from 12-3pm, ordered three rounds of two drinks and lunch. Manager came across and infront of other customers accused me of using a table (single table in the corner) as a "virtual office" and asked me to leave. The place was half empty.
If you don't want people to come and use a computer, don't have wifi...
Rude, inhospitable, customer service from the dark ages, don't come here
You get what you deserve, 'Security' staff made me lose face in front of colleagues and friends because they would not accept my Identification. I own a business, and I am clearly a middle-aged professional. I refuse to be treated the way I was, at the Camden Eye, this is clearly a rogue establishment that does not embody the values that we English hold dear.
We Londoners deserve better than this! You are made to feel like criminals when you attempt to enter this building. Do not give them your business!
This is a tiny little hole where no one care for the customers. And one little creature with a funny patchy beard is a racist and not mentally stable person.
Not recomended at all.
