This prime corner spot at the busy meeting point of York Way and Agar Grove was first licensed as a public house in the 1860s, and New Market Ale House certainly carries an organic air of historical charm that other London haunts bend over backwards to try and recreate. Don’t be fooled, though, into thinking that this stylish and often buzzing Camden bar and restaurant rests on its laurels and relies on historical novelty. Instead New Market Ale House embraces contemporary cuisine, providing a fantastic blend of the best of old and new. Old standards are done well, from a Cornish cream tea spread (finger sandwiches, homemade scones, clotted cream and Newmarket jam) to fresh fish and chips and banoffee pie, while international influences like Italian pizzas, pate de campagne and spritely squid tempura with courgette, rocket and lemon mayonnaise help make this much more than standard British pub fare.
Great little pub/restaurant - the owner has done a fantastic job renovating the place which is very bright with lots of light, nice beers, very friendly happy staff, free popcorn for kids and customers, had a great steak - all good.
The place was very pleasant, enjoy the food and enjoyed the beers, overall an excellent ale house, would recommend to others if you are in the area.
