SO it falls to Kelvin Mackenzie, of all people, to point us to where we can still buy a pint in Camden Town without breaking a five pound note. It’s a serious point, for some of the landlords of NW1 seem to think the addition of a stenciled glass is enough to audaciously ask as much as £5.60 for a lager.
Mackenzie wrote in his normally far less helpful column in The Sun, the paper he used to edit, on Friday: “A young colleague goes to the Mecca Bingo club in the uber-expensive Camden area of North London not for the numbers but for the drink, as they sell Kronenbourg at £2.89 a pint and Foster’s at £2.49. It’s more fall down than eyes down.”
Get your coats. See you in Arlington Road in five.
