Formerly Liberties Bar, The Camden Head is one of Camden's oldest boozers - and not to be confused with Islington's pub of the same name. A stone's throw from Camden's bustling markets, the pub has undergone dramatic changes of late including a redecorated bar, the introduction of a pool table and a new bar menu at affordable prices (a £5 lunch menu or specials from £7-£9 - bargain). An upstairs function room doubles up as a venue for comedy, live music and spoken word events. Friday and Saturday nights welcome DJs in the main bar area who make the most of the pub's new sound system. It's pretty much got it all at this versatile North London pub, which blends tradition with up-to-date trends and events.
