Tris C left this review about Lady Hamilton

Third time lucky and this pub has certainly changed for the better since my last visit. The interior is now far less hipster than before with a metal bar top, and floral claret/gold Victorian/Edwardian wallpaper. Furniture is new yet is more traditional and restrained manifesting itself in dark wood. However, you can certainly tell that this is a pub/bar aimed squarely at the under-30s, not least because of the overly loud music.
Slightly confused staff presided over just two real ales: a reversed clip thereafter East London Brewing Co's Nightwatchman in very good nick and an absolute bargain at £2.00 a half.
This is an improvement over Camden's Daughter but there's far better in the area, namely the Pineapple and Tapping the Admiral which ironically are both owned by the same team behind this venture and of course Hamilton was the partner of Nelson and reportedly lived in Kentish Town.

A first visit since this was the execrable O'Reilly's and what we have now is pretty much the tap for the Camden Town Brewery 10 minutes' walk around the corner. As such it doesn't sell real ale. There's also an open kebab kitchen and the rather attractive bar has been ripped out and replaced with some panelled wood affair. Still, the attractive ceiling remains. Part of the pub is clad with white tiles, and of course the floor is bare boarded. There are modern wooden pews to the rear, metal stools with metal-topped tables with single column legs and side banquettes. Lighting is a bit dim and music isn't too loud though with all the hard surfaces, the acoustics in here are poor.

I had a half of the Camden Pale Ale which cost £2.20; it was cold, fizzy and tasteless. Surely this is lager by any other name?

This is not my sort of place at all so I won't be returning.

Small one room pub.Modern industrial interior with ornate plaster ceiling(looks new)doesn't work for me.12 keg beers on 7 from Camden brewery and some guests.Reasonably priced craft beer. I tried Cloudwater-vienna lager which was okay.Food is kebabs.Doner or chicken from a little grill on the left of the bar.A first kebab shop in a pub?

This was the Old Farm House, today it's a rough Irish boozer for locals.

Still, the ceiling's interesting as is the tilework below the bar.

As Steve C says, best keep the exit in clear view at all times, ideally from the pavement.

This is a bit of a rough irish pub the bar is on the left as you enter and there are no real ales on it so it was John Smiths smooth crap or a Guinness i opted for the Guinness which was ok,i did'nt feel that comfortable in this pub.

This is a pretty rubbish place with mediocre lager that I'll never go into again. It doesn't look very inviting from the outside and in the case of this pub looks aren't deceiving.

I didn't venture upstairs or into the loos as I didn't want the exit out of my line of sight.
