Tucked away in the pretty posh back streets of Kentish Town (I'm rather reminded of Private Eye’s Grim Up North London cartoon strip at times on the walk), this is probably the most urbane ‘backstreet local’ I think I’ve ever come across. On entering, you’re confronted by light interior with a smallish bar which hosts a fabulous Victorian bar-back, complete with built in clock. Usually busy, so the locals are clearly keen. Four ales usually available, served by friendly staff. Redemption and Adnams are fairly regularly available alongside a couple of guests in good shape. The interior is a lot bigger than the bar initially suggests – if you proceed down the side corridor there are a couple of cosy seating areas, with a conservatory and pleasant beer garden at the rear (similar to that of the nearby Junction) and the conservatory contains an entire bound set of the 1932 Encyclopaedia Britannica. Pleasant background music. Thai dishes are the food of choice – I took a quick glance at the menu and the prices seemed rather reasonable for the area. Watch out for the pub cat(s) who meow to get in through the conservatory door if it’s shut. Quiz nights are advertised. Also, look out for the Ind Coope and Double Diamond windows at the bar’s front; retro-chic(?!)

Overall, this a is a lovely cosy local and I’d give it a definite thumbs-up. I enjoy it more and more each time I visit.

Some excellent detail in the reviews below,I liked the frosted Double Diamond window pane, the 20ppp CAMRA discount,and the £10 Thai meal deal including a Bass.Quite close to The Southampton Arms but much calmer,it is worth exploring the extensive interior once past the red velvet draught excluders around the entrance.
First on my list if visiting a pub in this neck of the woods.

Mr PSM's review below covers the main points and I agree that this a lovely, welcoming and comfortable traditional pub.
Entry is through the front door where you are met by darkness and only by pushing aside the heavy red velvet curtain do gain access to the bar. A nice touch.
The Pineapple does serve food and specialises in Thai which, although we didn't try, looked and smelt great.
Beer on when we visited was Kent Cob Nut, in good condition, Bass, Welsh Warrior, Cottage Healy 3000 and Kingsdown Classic.
I'd certainly return if anywhere near.
