Excellent music on the weekend where you'll see any spare space taken up by impromptu dancing.

If we were prone to making bold statements we’d say that Kentish Town is one of the most underrated nightlife areas in town. Unfortunately, we would be saying that purely on the basis that we can’t stop finding good venues among its parts with no other evidence apart from that as back up. Maybe people do rate it, maybe they rate it highly, and perhaps it’s already their favourite place in London. Well, we’re sticking to it anyway. Statement made.

The Abbey Tavern joins other esteemed venues like Dirty Burger, Camden Brewery and Aces and Eights on our list of Kentish Town goodies. And that’s largely thanks to a music policy that encourages all things danceable, Beatles and Northern Soul.

Located on Kentish Town Road, the long stretch of a pub offers hardly a hint of the fun to be had inside, apart from the weekend bouncers perhaps. It is a modern pub - you can tell from the photographer doing the rounds for the Facebook page – with long wooden tables that bring big groups together for roasts on Sundays and get shunted to the side to make dancing space on weekends. Interestingly, the kitchen is run by Farmer Tom, a man who farms, butchers and prepares the menu around dishes and cuts that use all of the animal. A sort of nose to tail eating on a gastro level.

What Kentish Town possesses is a local feel to it. Unlike other London neighborhoods you get the sense that some of the people in the pub have actually grown up here, which makes for a clientele that offers a little more range than your average Soho, Hackney or Clapham bar.

DJs play excellent music at the Abbey Tavern at the weekend, people dance and a good time is had by all. This is just what we like about Kentish town. And with a range of beers (including some from the Camden Brewery) and good food, this is just what we like about the Abbey Tavern.

I think the staff could smile more. I've seen such a miserable bunch of gits in my life.

That said, I like the food and I like the clientele. Its a good pub with great DJs, but the bar staff suck any happiness out of the place.
