Camden’s finest independent pub…CO-VID UPDATE

UPDATE 01.04.20


Hello to all our wonderful customers past, present and  future!

For the reasons of health and safety and ‘furloughed’ staff The Colonel Fawcett is currently closed for all purposes.

Things may change soon but at this stage in the process we’re intending on remaining closed until the government advises otherwise but at some point a takeaway or delivery service may become a viable option.

In the meantime…

We started as an independent pub almost nine years ago and remain fiercely so, working with as many independent breweries, distilleries and drinks suppliers as possible.

We are not after sympathy but just support. None of us want a high street devoid of independent businesses and, unfortunately, that’s a distinct possibility with the way things are heading. Only the biggest corporations will survive… and that’s a horrible prospect for us all.

We are also highly aware of all the good that our NHS and other people are doing for this country and our communities. So, to support the NHS staff who are working so incredibly hard and putting themselves in danger – for every gift voucher that you purchase – we will add 10% on top and create an ‘NHS Fund’ which can be redeemed by NHS staff when we re-open.

Exact details on this TBC but we will ensure they are well looked after with food and drink when we re-open. We will keep a tally update on that fund as we progress through the weeks.

If you have fond memories of the Colonel – maybe it was a friend’s birthday, a lovely meal or even a wedding – please help us make sure there’s many more years of those to come.

Also, to those who have lost their jobs, income or for whom the future seems unsettled, we are also thinking of you in this time. Instead of buying a gift voucher, a share of this link would be much appreciated.

Please purchase a gift voucher below which can be redeemed as soon as we open!











Much love, The Colonel.

The Colonel Fawcett

What's On


In 2011, three intrepid young Londoners; Angus, Crusoe and Ross fancied their chances of running a boozer in the backstreets of Camden and on August 27th 2011, The Colonel Fawcett was born (formerly The Camden Arms). The stars seemed to align and with an amazing array of gins, fantastic British food and a good old ‘knees up’ at the weekend, The Colonel went from strength to strength to the pub it is today, still owned and run by ourselves.

Many changes have happened here over the years – we’ve got older, our beer range has improved as has our décor but our independent spirit and dedication to quality products and brilliant service remains.

We hope you can join us soon for a tipple in Camden’s finest independent boozer.
