Ahhh the Spread Eagle. A super pub - and I do frequent it quite a bit I must say. A proper decent boozer, with no frills or fancy sillyness. Some might say drab or souless but I say uncontrived and unpretentious.
It being a Young's house it's got all their regulars on, draught and in bottles. And a couple of regularly changing guests too. On this occasion I went for the Redemption Pale Ale, although normally I just stick with the ordinary bitter. The pub grub is godo too - don't forget your Wedge card for a discount!

The barstaff are nice and friendly, and thankfully treat you like a mate and a drinker, rather than a customer. An imporant difference! Pubs are not beer shops. There's normally few distractions here - no jukebox and the tellies are only on for big sporting events. Although the karaoke and the quiz night can be a bit intrusive if that's not why you've gone there. Come summer there is plenty of seating outside though.

The Spread-quarters is a fine pub indeed, and in the middle of Camden Town a decent boozer is oddly hard to find. So make a note!
