Go on a Sunday and have the Lamb Shank, I think it was literally the best in London! 

Visited on a bright sunny Sunday afternoon, sat outside in the sunshine and watched the world go by, great way to spend a day. 

The Lamb Shank and a Ginger Beer was 23GBP which is a little pricey but not for the BEST Sunday Roast you can get in London!!! 

The staff were really friendly, the areas inside were lovely and bright and airy. The upstairs sung is just BEAUTIFUL, I would highly recommend it for a great together.

I came here for a friend's engagement party and it was okay. The decor is great, light, airy and nicely kitted out. It certainly looks the part and is ideally located just a stone's throw from Camden Town station and high-street. 


Drinks were expensive, however, you're looking at nearly £7 for a glass of house wine. I know it's London and prime location but come on. And then secondly, after we got turfed out of the venue space at midnight, we relocated downstairs to finish off our drinks and the bar staff opened the back door and left it open to draft in the very cold (IT'S MARCH AND SNOWING) air to deter us from staying long. We went to shut the door and the staff told us not to because they were leaving it to encourage guests to leave. Not cool (I mean, it was, literally) - just call last orders. 


Verdict: I imagine a chill Sunday drink would be fine but you won't be getting much for your money in terms of quantity or quality of service.

I really love this pub. It's in a prime location 2 minutes walk from Camden Town but tucked on a pretty back street so you feel removed from the chaos that is Camden Town Station. 


The pub itself is light and airy, lovely inside with a nice patio outside for warmer evenings


We had dinner and the food was pretty excellent and beautifully presented. We had a plethora of starters: cool butternut squash soup, arancini, crab doughnuts (a must!), and salt and pepper squid (some of the best we've had).


For mains we both had a burger, softshell crab and a veggie burger in case you were interested, with sweet potato fries. Delicious!!


It's also worth noting, for any rose enthusiasts, that the Spreadeagle serves Whispering Angel Rose for 30 quid. When you consider this is served in The Ritz for £16 a glass it's a pretty good deal but there are lots of cheaper wines on offer. We also treated ourselves to a cocktail - an espresso martini and an old fashioned which felt like something you would get in a swanky cocktail bar rather than a pub. 


A hidden gem and well worth a visit!

I’ve been to this pub after a rather nice visit to the nearby Jewish Museum. It was a quite beautiful but very cold day, so being able to sit inside by the big flowery window was ideal! The service was a little slow (and it wasn’t crowded at all when we arrived) but friendly, and our drinks were alright. We only ordered sides but everything was pretty good.
It’s quite a charming place surprisingly close to all the mess and crowd of Camden High Street.
