The Constitution reviews

By Andrew M.

We went from pub to pub and finally found the Constitution. It was the only pub on the canal that wasn't full. We were pleased cause the Constitution is a great pub. Especially liked the pub garden.

By J.

The Constitution's my local so I spend a fair bit of time there and I can wholeheartedly recommend it. The Constitution's a good old fashioned proper pub, just how I love them.

The Constitution is most famous for its basement live music bar and fantastic beer garden overlooking the canal, making it a real all-weather winner.

The Venue
The Constitution is tucked away from the main thoroughfare of Camden, beside the canal. This allows it to make the most of its best feature – a large canalside beer garden that, despite its out-of-the-way-location, is still regularly full to bursting on a hot summer’s evening. Inside, the pub is pleasant enough, if rather traditional, with swathes of wood and a large central bar, but it’s the cellar bar that is the star of the show. Down here you’ll find a cosy stage for regular live music events – it’s suitably grungy without being too grimy.

The Atmosphere
On a rare sunny London day the beer garden at The Constitution has a typically upbeat, happy atmosphere as Londoners really make the most of the sunshine. Pints are drunk by the bucket load as people desperately try to enjoy what is sure to be a short-lived glimpse of summer. The rest of the time, the live music that plays downstairs covers a huge range of genres, from blues and classical to rock, jazz and ska, so there really is something for everyone – just be sure to check ahead of time so you don’t get a ‘nasty’ surprise that isn’t to your taste.

The Food
Three letters: BBQ. A weather-permitting barbecue is in operation in the comfortable beer garden and you can sample homemade burgers or halloumi wraps at a Camden-worthy bargain price, all dishes under £6. The BBQ operates on weeknights and across the weekend.

The Drink
The Constitution has three pumps offering real ale at any one time and they support the local Camden Brewery. Other regulars include Deuchers and Broadside beer and they clearly ensure pipes are very well looked after – often a complaint in this part of town.

The Last Word
The Constitution is a great all-rounder that is especially worth a visit on a hot summer’s day.

Brilliant locals pub, great in the summer with an amazing beer garden over looking the canal which is kept beautifully with hanging baskets and flowers in the summer. Very good value bbq with excellent homemade burgers. Its off the main camden area and good if you want something a bit more relaxed and low key. Love The Constitution!
