With Miles Davis on the stereo and a stream of banter from two generations of Quinns behind the bar, this Irish boozer manages to feel like a real sanctuary from the outside world. There’s a rotating selection of guest ales, and one of the longest lists of Belgian and German bottled beers you'll find in the capital (stored in a padlocked fridge beside the bar).

Absolute dump. We went here for a drink after seeing a gig at the Roundhouse in Camden. Being St Patrick's day (we are Irish) we wanted to go for a few to an Irish bar. This place is disgusting. Bathrooms are literally so gross; one girl came out of the cubicle and the door came with her - it literally fell apart. No hygiene whatsoever - glasses are gross. The bar staff need to have a shower and learn to use a washing machine. The bar man tried to charge my husband £35 for 4 drinks! When my husband pulled him on it he was like 'oh sorry I meant £25' clearly trying to trick people into paying more money.


There is no excuse for filthy disgusting beer mats on the bar....our glasses were sticking to them.   Even if business is bad... Wash the bloody things!    Host was pleasant but needs to know how to use a washing machine 

We came here for a 40th birthday night out and one of the bar staff was rude to everyone within the group.

I have no idea were, as the bar was empty on a Saturday night


Spent a few hours here recently and, sadly, there's no longer the excellent range of German bottled beers there once was. I remember chatting to the German driver at the bar who used to drive a lorry load of fabulous beer from Bavaria to this pub, have a drink or two, then go back the following day. The good brews were the main reason for coming here. Please get them back!

Can't believe this place has bad reviews?? Great local pub with 2 amazing owners, a real pub in Camden which is a hard thing to find. Long live Quinns!!!!

I found a wet wipe in my burger and chips. I'm still having nightmares about it.

brilliant place for a quiet drink and an Ireland rugby match if there happens to be one on-best Guinness in London without a doubt-not the frozen stuff that has no taste

Oh dear, this place is rank and the owners are rude and offensive. Only good thing is the Guinness. Bar flies swamp the taps, toilets are disgusting and the food mysteriously comes from upstairs, probably the ancient landlords personal kitchen, I poked it and left it, explained why and got abused. This place is in serious decline and deservedly so.

I can't believe Quinns has bad reviews. It's been my sanctuary for years and I have never experienced bad service or any of the before mentioned things. It might not be the most popular pub in the area, but it’s a brilliant place for a quiet drink and Vincent (one of the owners) is incredibly nice.
