Regular beers: Sharp's Doom Bar

See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

June 2024 - some of the pumps now repaired and the pub has made a tentative step into the cask beer world with Doom Bar.

20/02/24 - from a customer - " I sent a Tweet to this pub asking if they'd fixed the problem with their hand pump(s) yet. Not the response I was hoping for but still room for some optimism: "Unfortunately not. We are hoping to have it sorted out in early March"

6 Sept 2023 - due to faults in newly fitted handpumps no cask beer was available - hopefully the problem will be sorted soon. 29/12/23 - it seems the problem remains so now registered as no real ale until the fault is fixed. We were informed that there is an air leak which spoils the beer's condition.

May 2023 - reopened under new management and have stated that there will be more real ale pumps on and sports bar facilities (will still retain the Irish link). New operator operating on a Stonegate lease for 5 years. Further news as to cask beers awaited. Praeclara Ltd is described as a new PubCo. Food will follow, but not yet. The nearest underground station is Kilburn.

Previously -

Acquired by Ross Grady, Angus Stevenson, and Crusoe Millar, who bought the lease in January 2017. Mr Grady, who with his friends runs the Colonel Fawcett in Camden Town and the Smugglers Arms in Warren Street, said: “It’s the first pub that feels like a traditional pub that we hope to restore to its original beauty. We will up the anti with drink offers and live traditional Irish music every Saturday night.”

He added: “The essence of the pub was in good shape, with wood cladding we wanted to keep. We’ve basically worked top down, breathed new life into it with new colour schemes but generally working with what’s there already.” They also have a nice selection of bottled/canned beers but at a price. Pub looks in good shape, two nice rooms with lots of wood panelling. Upstairs room now operates as a restaurant.

Payment by cash no longer accepted - card payment only.
