Enjoyed a really nice meal at the Kentish Town Canteen recently. I ordered cod with sauteed potatoes. It was great to have a fresh chunk of fish and the vegetables were perfectly cooked. My friend ordered BBQ chicke with chips which was also nicely cooked, this was served with a flavourful sauce.

The food is good but a little overpriced for the small portion I received.more

We went there on a balmy evening last week and it was very hot inside. As we don't smoke, we didn't sit outside. It's beyond me why they didn't put the air-con on.

However, I'm deducting points because of my cocktail confusion. The first time I went, I...more

Oh. How I wanted to love this place. It looks so nice from the outside, and the first time I went I thought the food was the bee's knees. Either I just got lucky or I was high on the euphoria of recently moving to K-Town from Balham (no offence, Balhamites). But having been back a few times since, it's never lived up to expectations. The food is on the pricey side for the area, and frankly you...more
