Kentish Town restaurants: keeping K'towners going since at least 1207. When King John ruled a formative Britain, Kentish Town was known as kentisston, and by 1456 Kentish Town was really taking off. This upward trend continues steadily today with Kentish Town, in the wider London borough of Camden, well-renowned for its pub rock and bar scene. Many big artists got their first break at Kentish Town’s many watering-holes and music venues. Even Karl Marx rocked Kentish Town back in the 19th century, an early iteration of Kentish Town's erstwhile fist-in-the-air punk attitude. And Kentish Town is still buzzing with music and historic CAMRA-certified pubs today, meaning that restaurants in Kentish Town are obligingly packed with hungry punters with a raging need to satisfy their English-ale-and-pub-rock-induced appetites.
