Without a doubt delicious. I experienced the Chef’s special, utilized the waiters unbiased recommendation , and wrapped up off with a fantastic soft serve dish .
Classic food preparation, worked in an unassuming dining facility without a whole lot of fuss. Their energy definitely speaks by itself, and though vegans might possibly discover their choice quite limited, it’s a carnivore’s heaven. Multiple business-types here on a weekday lunch break, but the natural environment was still being fairly casual.
Service plan was warm and friendly, attentive and thought of as without getting pushy or stuffy. Will truly return to try most of the a lot more daring dishes
Brilliant pub! I have been here a good few times and I really enjoy the raw-ness of this pub. It looks ran-down, the music is brilliant and nice staff. The toilets are as you’d expect in such a pub.
I wish there were more pubs like this! This is a good place to hang out with friends! Enjoying it!
I love this pub, the boyfriend hates it. You are not coming here for quality drinks, and know quite a few people who refuse to drink anything from the pump.
Good pool table playing and music with a lively crowd, though it does get a bit much for me on the weekends.
During the week, it is a mainly local crowd, very mixed, good times.
Really like this place, dodgy decor, good drinks, mixed music vibe, off the high street etc…. but one thing that brings it down is the people inc the staff, sometimes it has a great crowd and friendly staff other times full of pretentious wanabees who only go here to say they were in the good mixer and just make the atmosphere awkward…
This pub looks like it was last decorated in the 70's, and probably was, but that just adds to the charm. Great mix of people in here, from builders to 18 year old Amy Winehouse wanabees, and a great vibe too. I think the Good Mixer has probably already had its 15 minutes of fame, but its all the better for it, as it doesn't attract pretentious w*nkers anymore, just normal people out for a good time. One of my preferred pubs in Camden.
One of the friendlier, less pretentious pubs in Camden that attracts quite a varied crowd really. The main reason I come here is that the Good Mixer plays great music and the drinks are very reasonably priced. As another reviewer said, it’s not the prettiest of pubs and don’t expect some comfy sofa in the toilets (or toilet roll or soap, for that.) I always have a great night here though.
Camden’s top dive bar still has all of the character of its Britpop hay day but with fewer celeb spotters. It’s definitely the kind of place where you shoes stick to the floors and you don’t want to try to use the toilets, but it’s a pub without pretense and even on the craziest nights it’s still not as packed as most places on Camden High Street.
Most of the time, it’s at least half empty, so it’s possible to enjoy a game of snooker or watch football without getting elbowed repeatedly. The music is decent and not usually so loud that you can’t manage of conversation, and the drinks are cheap, at least by Camden standards.
Best for an afternoon out of the house if you don’t mind a little dirt under the fingernails.
I feel like I must be spelling this place wrong or something cause I can’t believe I’m the first to review it. This place is an institution (I don’t know what that means - but people say it about popular places - a menal insitution - the mechanics institution? weird complimentative adjective..)
It’s a cool place. Lot’s and Lot’s of weird people, and not the pretend weird tourist types on the high st but the proper camden weirdos that create the scene that brings the tourists in the first place.
It sells beer, has live bands and a pool table. It has a real atmosphere that you will probably love or be totally repulsed by. I quite like it.
It’s thanks to places like this that I’m always grateful to live in Camden but work in Soho - both places have plenty of great bars and are almost entirely chain free.
Unlike ghastly pubs like the O’Neills chain the grottiness in this place is 100% genuine. The furniture doesn’t care what it looks like and neither do the customers - many of whom revel in the freedom to dress however they please without being stared at. It’s almost entirely free of the braying morons that ruin many another pub (especially those near the City) and is content to do exactly what it says on the tin. It’s even one of those increasingly rare pubs with pool tables.
Some of its better known customers have moved on to farming, selling frozen food or rehab but you could end up unwittingly sitting beside the next big thing if you go here. You never know, they might even step on your Converse in the squash to get to the loos.
My favorite. Not as good as it used to be but oh well..still has that feel of old dirty and greasy tables..no credit card machines either. I still can’t believe they installed the modern jukebox and mixer guns though! and the space toilets.
Anyway to the point. It’s a perfect hang out where you always meet people and as long as you’re not looking for trouble you won’t get any… well if you are that’d be another story!
I love mixer and the atmosphere there. Rock’n’roll spirit. Used to be favorite place of all your brit pop bands in mid 90’s.
Place hasn’t changed for years (I can vouch for that personally as started frequenting this place when I was 13). Don’t head here very often - the people etc I thought were cool don’t seem that great anymore. But an institution nonetheless and always a warm Camden welcome.
I love a place with a good mix of people, and The Good Mixer is that. Many people would hate it: crowded, you’re likely to get a pool stick poke you in the back or a mohawk in your eye, the toilets are nasty, and more than half the people are three-quarters of the way to half-pissed.
But no one will hate on you here. Oddballs are non-judgmental. Put some coins in the jukebox, buy a round of the house wine (it’s jaegermeister), and challenge that guy with the Misfits T-shirt to some pool.
Extremely fashionable boozer for some unknown reason. All the funniest haircuts and jeans in Camden gather hear and it is by far the busiest place on Inverness St every night. If you remove all the hipsters and oddballs all you’ve got is a standard pub with a pool table, fruity, relatively cheap bar and some propper grubby toilets but the variety of people it attracts and the generally strange vibe make it a fun place to go any night of the week
A genuinely scummy boozer, which is a plus in my book. The drinks are not ridiculously expensive, which is startling considering the location and its reputation ...celebrity spotting and all that jazz.
It has a decent mixture of people, the genuinely terrifying, the conversational and friendly, the posh punks from Surrey...
Since the smoking ban it tends to be busier outside than inside.
You'll probably meet "Scottish Alan" by the end of the night... a very amusing and affable sort of fellow.... don't do anything silly like try and drink his pint (which he drinks from one of the metal jobbies) ...he's related to Alex Harvey dontchya know ;)
Hopefully it does't go the same route as The Dublin Castle or The Hawley Arms with queues of skinny-jeaned boho celebrity spotters come a-gawping and bringing the drink prices up and the conversation down.
This boozer for me always as a cozy glow (or is that hazy???), a mixture of people visit this place once renowned from the britpop era as a haunt of blur et al… now a 'good mix’ (gettt?) of different types - indie kids, locals, builders… the perfect place when you want a hard messy drinking sesh… get the beers in!
Obscenely trendy and full of ridiculously cool, good looking characters – this is definitely one of the places to be seen in Camden. It’s quite small with a central bar and is usually just as busy outside round the railings as in. A good selection of spirits that would keep even Amy Winehouse happy (and legend has it, has done). I recommend asking for a rixtasy at the bar, it’ll be the second to last drink of the night.
