SquareMeal Review of The Colonel Fawcett

In 1843, before taking part in the last duel fought on English soil, it’s said the good Colonel F sought Dutch courage in a nip of his beloved gin. Today, he’d find Caorunn, Bloom and Plymouth Sloe among nearly 20 on offer at the sympathetically re-jigged former Camden Arms. Unlike some of the neighbourhood’s rowdier taverns with late licences, this is a relatively sedate proposition – you could happily bring your tweedy grandparents here for Sunday roast, steak and kidney pie or haddock and leek fishcakes with a bottle of fruity Aussie Shiraz. As well as quiz nights and DJs playing 80s music at weekends, this ‘Nouveau Victorian’ pub also benefits from plenty of outdoor space – so park up on the front terrace with a pint of real ale or a cocktail (gin mojito or a Tom Collins, say) and survey the scene.

Never setting foot in the pub ever again after one of the bar staff laughed in the face of a friend of mine with learning difficulties for simply asking her if the bar sold Smirnoff Ice. The pub stinks of plastic, cloned wannabe Camden Kaners who have all descended from the Shires in search of a trace of cool. The fact is the bar staff are all emotionally crippled and should remember born n bred Camden-ites like myself (for the last 40 years) have an inherent sense of community and would never dream of considering someone ordering a Smirnoff Ice as some sort of social leper. Especially someone with learning difficulties. We're also not that DESPERATE to have to elevate ourselves to a some deluded sense of cool. We're already there.
