Pub 49. The Spread Eagle, 4th April 2012.

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!

My favourite barmaid!
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.

On this occasion the entertainment was provided by DJ Wheelie Bag, and his dancing girls. Much more pleasing to the ear than the karaoke.

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!
