Square Meal Review of The Abbey Tavern ?

Part local boozer, part live entertainment venue and part gutsy street-food joint – no wonder the buzzy Abbey Tavern is seldom short of punters. The line-up of events takes in everything from a comedy club (Mondays) and open-mic nights on Tuesdays to bingo and weekend DJs, but also look out for the Marvel comic-themed quizzes every month. Food is in the hands of the guys from Phileas Hog – so expect their trademark pulled pork (sourced from free-range Suffolk pigs), salt beef on sourdough, burgers, veggie patties and ‘hot chicks’ (grilled chicken sandwiches loaded with ‘bacon jam’, guacamole and chipotle mayo), plus sides of poutine, stuffed jalapeño ‘poppers’ and mac ‘n’ cheese. Pints of Hop Gun from the Late Knights Brewery and free Wi-Fi, plus a handy beer garden and roof terrace earn bonus points with the locals.

    Scoff London :: Phileas Hog @ The Abbey Tavern, NW1

    Good BBQ, great portions, excellent value “At Phileas Hog, we’re passionate about great food. We draw from our varied backgrounds, both urban and rural, and our shared love of travel, food and culture. We understand the need for well reared meat and guarantee that we will use nothing but the finest ingredients in all our products. We believe wholeheartedly in the need for well sourced fresh ingredients for both flavour and quality of life for all involved.” My friend Paul and I met up for lunch at The Abbey Tavern after Phileas Hog Tweeted me to come down and check them out. Paul had apparently played at their open mic before but I’d never been to The Tavern before. The pub itself has a really cool feel, my kind of place. Lots of wood, light, exposed brick, fairy lights behind the bar. As well as the open mic they host a regular comedy evening as well as DJs on Friday and Saturday nights...

  2. Ladies and gentleman, this possibly is my new favourite pub in London! I am not sure what it was about the Abbey Tavern but as soon as we walked in, I really liked the vibe of the place. The only thing I can think of was that it wasn’t so ‘pub-bish’ if that is even an acceptable reason to like a pub! But in all honesty, Abbey Tavern did not have the sticky floors and general beer smell, to me it felt like a combination between a trendy bar and a hipster cafe with the flowers on each table and I love it!...

  3. The Abbey Tavern in Kentish Town, whose kitchen is run by Farmer Tom Jones, is one of the newest restaurants in London. I had heard that it is a great place for good value steak. The chef at this restaurant is a farmer (hence the name) from Stafford who supplies all of the meat to the restaurant. I had heard that it is one of the best sourced meat restaurants as well as incredibly cheap for the quality. What I didn’t realise until we visited it, was that it was part of a pub; not a gastropub type style instead a dark indie pub that served cheap alcohol. Now I know I always ramble on about food being more important than decor and location but this is the exception and yes, I admit I am a hypocrite...
