The Engineer


In the leafy pocket of Primrose Hill, The Engineer brings a streak of sophistication to the gastro pub concept. Inspired by Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the legendary north London pub also offers a secret garden area for secluded al fresco dining, with covered areas and outdoor heating for when the weather's less than desirable. Enjoy a simple, seasonal menu, accompanied by a painstakingly sourced stock from the cellar.

Great pub near Primrose hill and Camden market, the best part of course being it dog friendly. The pub is huge with a nice cozy bar area with comfy chairs; they have a large outdoor space as well for a nice sunny day.

Again surprised I have never reviewed this place as it is in my hood. I truly enjoy the engineer but for some reason it never is front of mind for local meals in primrose hill.

Epic place, let down only very slightly by the staff who are more than happy to walk on by when you're obviously waiting to order a pint... That is excusable though when everything else about The Engineer is so great.

I wish it was my local :(more
