Tris C left this review about Be At One

Recently acquired by the pan-national cocktail bar chain, Beatone in what was once the Princess Beatrice.
A trendy (I'm no expert on these things) cocktail bar for young people with lots of money who like loud music and for whom this awful area isn't a deterrent.
Beer: a bottle of Moretti (330ml, no glass offered) at £4.50. There are some lovely floor tiles, probably original, which look like they may be Minton, the company responsible for supplying the tiles in the Palace of Westminster. Oh well...

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Beatrice

Basic music pub, with bare boards, limited furniture and a small stage to the rear. Smaller bar and a bit more seating to far side. Disappointingly, only one of the four handpumps was actually working so made do with over-priced pint of Pride (£4.00).

Roger Button left this review about Wheelbarrow

This mid 19th Century pub, originally called the Princess Beatrice, has undergone a few transformations in recent years, firstly to an Irish Bar called Tommy Flynns and then to a music orientated pub called the Wheelbarrow. It has now undergone a fresh transformation and reverted back to its original name (albeit minus its prefix).

The smallish interior was opened up many moons ago but you can still see from the tiled flooring opposite the side entrance that it would have originally been split into more than one bar. The pub appears to be a bit spartan on the furnishings front with limited seating and tables, a chesterfield and some drinking shelves along one side and a good chink of open floor space. There is also a small tucked away bar at the rear with some lounge comforts.

The old jumble and collectables that used to live on the high shelves have now been removed and been replaced by more of a local artist gallery approach with the current displays of safety match themed artworks on sale for between £35 and £150 if you have some spare change from your pint. In common with most pubs in the area, flyers and posters advertise what’s going on in the area on the music and theatre front. Music does still seems to play a part here although the original front stage was removed after its Tommy Flynn days and any preformances now take place at the back of the pub in front of the open brickwork fireplace that does make quite an impressive backdrop. There is also a sizeable TV in the front bar section.

One major improvement is the introduction of Real Ales albeit of the 4 hand pumps, the 3 quite interesting guest beers were all off on my recent visit leaving a decent but quite expensive (£4) London Pride as the only option.

Like many pubs around here, it can be quite a vibrant place and it certainly sits comfortably within the general Camden vibe. The beer availability problem aside, this remains a decent enough place if passing by and is certainly a notch up on some of its immediate competitors although it is isn’t exactly a place you will put high on your must do list.
