THE STORY OF The Engineer

Dating back to the 1800s and named after Isambard Kingdom Brunel, The Engineer is one of Primrose Hill’s most established watering holes and renowned for being the preferred drinking establishment of many of North London’s intelligentsia, including politicians, actors and comedians.  

Just a short stroll from Regent’s Canal and Camden Lock, surrounded by leafy streets and an abundance of independent shops, The Engineer is an ideal spot for relaxation and refreshment after a day’s retail therapy, a trip to nearby London Zoo or a walk around Primrose Hill Park where some of the finest views of the London are to be enjoyed.

Classic with a bohemian edge, The Engineer has been lovingly restored, combining period features with contemporary touches.  As well as three stunning function rooms for hire, the pub’s best-kept secret is its delightful beer garden – perfect for laid-back afternoons, al-fresco dining or just a glass of something special on a sunny day. The charming walled beer garden offers ample comfy seating, sheltered tables and barbecue facilities for the summer months, as well as patio heating for those days when the weather is a little more British than Bahamas. Attracting a diverse clientele and fostering a relaxed atmosphere, this welcoming pub holds the spirit of the great British local close to its heart.  

Staffed by a dedicated team who are committed to first-class service, The Engineer expertly mixes a traditional local feel with a touch of urban refinement.
