Still painted a dull battleship grey outside, inside is openplan with a gastro almost shabby chic feel with a mix of seating ,high and low.
Just two hand pumps on the bar and I counted about thirteen keg taps with a mix of Lager,Craft and Cider on offer, I stayed with the handles which offered a decent choice between Five Points Pale and Redemption Rock The Kazbek, which was fine. This wouldn't be a first choice pub for me but it was Ok.

Until 2011, this pub was trading under its original name of the Camden Arms. Built in 1843, it was the place where the last person in Britain to fight a duel died (the eponymous Fawcett), in an upstairs room. Still remaindered from its former incarnation are the Taylor Walker lanterns (original glass removed) and trademark arched sign frame, minus cannon.
A first in here, this pub is nestled off the beaten track in a rather unprepossessing part of Camden, just by the canal on the way to St. Pancras. This really isn't a nice area at all, so unless you're looking for the pub you're unlikely ever to find it. It's also suitably far from central Camden Town to not attract the attention of the Camden Weird Brigade. As mentioned below, the purple and black hair and The Cure of old now belong to yesteryear, primarily because despite the location, this place now attracts an older, more professional and hipster clientele. Indeed this pub would look more at home in a side street in Islington's upmarket Canonbury or Barnsbury.
The interior is a bit pale gastro blue/grey with a bare boarded floor, some wood panelling and conventional slightly rustic furniture. Music is muted and the menu is clearly more gastro than just about any pub I can recall in all of NW1. That said, you aren't confronted by table cloths and cutlery on entering so eating is quite casual.
Ales: Hop Stuff American Pale Ale and Session IPA at £4.40 a pint though very good indeed.
My only complaint is that the bar staff are a bit clueless and a barmaid gave me a Northern Irish green drinking voucher; perhaps she mistook it for one of the new ones?
I'd definitely come here again if in the area, but a greater choice of ales would be a bonus as would an increase in the wattage as it's a bit gloomy in here.
