Quite well described below, the highlight being Camden's own Nutty Boys being played over the stereo at a muted level. Less attractive was the games machine and mirror ball. Typically, the pub is bare boarded and dark with mixed furniture and a touristy crowd, so it's obvious that the Camden Weird Brigade don't come in here.
Ales served by a rather clueless barmaid: Hobgoblin, Southwark's London Pale Ale, Fuller's London Pride and Redemption's Hopspur at £2.20 a half which was slightly off; the patrons didn't strike me as being particularly likely to be drawn to real beer.
This isn't a great place and I don't envisage a return visit.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Bucks Head

Small 'L'-shaped bar, with thin steel columns supporting the upper floors so the original rooms must have been tiny. Traditional dark furniture, but rather more fashionable decor. Sports TVs. Exterior has been repainted fairly recently, making the Truman plaque more prominent but the unusual pub signs on each façade less so. Now has four handpumps, with Pride, Hobgoblin, Spitfire and London Beer Factory Chelsea Blonde (£4.15) available on this visit.

This is a fairly standard street corner boozer with loud music and pictures of London celebrities on the walls for the tourists: The Who, Twiggy, a red bus, The Beatles? There are lots of small tables, each with a numbered block of wood with menus stuck in it, although this doesn't feel like much of a dining pub. Seating is mostly low stools, but there are some benches by the walls and a couple of leather arm chairs. The music was ok, although if I'd been hoping to engage in conversation I would have struggled.

There were two real ales available: Brains IPA and Fullers London Pride. I tried the Brains, which at 3.4% has got to be the lowest strength I've ever seen for this beer type. It was also low on taste, which may not have been the fault of the brewer, and a little warm, but then we were having the British summer this week, so maybe that could be excused. I was charged £1.85 for a half, which suggests that a pint would be £3.70. I wouldn't go out of my way to come here again.
