The Horseshoe


Established in 2006, The Horseshoe became the birthplace of Camden Town Brewery when founder Jasper Cuppaidge started out by making beer in the pub basement for fun. By 2010 he moved the brewing underneath the railway arches of Kentish Town West, where it still is. The Horseshoe is the first of Camden Town Brewery's 3 pubs, and serves simple, great food. The Horseshoe serves lunch and dinner everyday, with breakfast and lunch items available on Saturday, and roasts available on Sunday. Home to a lovely tranquil restaurant area, and a bustling, vibrant bar area, The Horsehoe welcomes children throughout the restaurant and dogs in the bar area.


Average main course: £13.00 (USD16.36) per diner

Since the Horseshoe redecorated in 2015 it's a much nicer place to sit with a few beers and some snacks. The food has always been very good quality, although the veg options can be very limited. Unfortunately the service is a little hit and miss. Their efficiency and friendliness depends on who is serving and how busy they are, which is a shame.more

The modern style renovated Camden Town Brewery attracts me because of the cool interior and seemingly good kitchen. I hadn't been there in years but had a positive memory of the food. This time I wasn't convinced by my grilled polenta with chanterelles, artichokes and cannellini beans. The sound of the dish is totally up my street but the execution was a bit disappointing - everything was...more

The Horseshoe is prominently situated on the high street, literally a stone's throw from the Hampstead underground station. It has the distinction of being the birthplace of Camden Town Brewery and open since 2006, but it has been recently refurbished.

The revamp has improved the atmosphere of the pub greatly, rendering it a more energetic and relaxed setting with a strong focus on the bar....more

Love this place! I'm a big fan of the Camden brewery and do coming here to drink makes me happy. In addition, the staff went out of their way to find us a spot to sit so we could have lunch one day. This will become a regular drinking hole.more

An outpost of Camden Town Brewery. There is a line of taps of their beers, fairly trendy stuff but varied and cared for. They have a fridge full of beers including some German classics like the Schlenkerla Rauchbier and Augustiner Hells, though you are looking at around six quid for one of these.

It's comfortable and friendly here. The food looks good though I've never thought of trying it...more
