    Camden's Daughter is a new pub- which is actually located in Kentish Town- brought to you by Camden Town Brewery. Formerly known as O'Reillys (and several other incarnations before that), this disused space was bought up and brushed up by Camden in 2015. It opened in November that year as a literal offspring of the brewery taproom, which is located only a few minutes away on foot. Perhaps an attempt to alleviate the throngs of beer drinkers at the now outgrown brewery bar, this alternative location provides everything you'd expect from a modern pub: ample indoor seating, a kitchen proffering solid burgers or other street food iterations, good music and a wide range of beer.The décor of the pub is kept minimal and contemporary- although some elements of the former venue remain, including large leaded windows and ornately decorated ceilings, the rest has been gutted to create an open, informal space with stools, tables and booths for patrons. Heavy wooden detailing meets a backsplash of clean square tiles at the bar- the beers are the focus and there's an excellent selection across 15 taps. At least half of these are reserved for Camden beers- both the core range and some seasonal offerings- and the rest represent some local and international breweries and styles. There's a good bottle selection as well.The food is also worth ordering, as it comes very colourful, lively and fresh- the menu does rotate, but it's likely that a posh variation of a street food classic will be proffered; we've had posh kebabs there that were definitely worth raving about, but on our last visit, the menu focused primarily on grilled meats and Mediterranean style salads. My boyfriend got rotisserie brisket in a bun and I opted for a ¼ beer can chicken in a salad. The brisket arrived in a glossy brioche bun stuffed with perfectly chargrilled beef that was complemented with a beer barbecue sauce that left him lapping up what spilled out of the bun with his fingers.My chicken was perfectly grilled, very moist on the inside and with a golden crispy skin that was accompanied with a tasty salsa verde. The salad option comprised a grilled hunk of bread and a mixture of four salads, including a pomegranate tabbouleh, fennel/radish/apple slaw, baby gem wedges with lemon and mint and chargrilled vegetables. The salads were all fresh and fragrant and contributed to the colourful presentation, specked with freshly chopped herbs and looking thoroughly appetising for a warm summer evening.The food is excellent value and the guest beers have been worthwhile on both visits. The staff are also very friendly and the space is relaxed and bright. Although I have been there in the early evening, it has been relatively quiet on both occasions, meaning that service was prompt and attentive. A pleasant spot like this is bound to attract crowds on the weekend, especially as they offer a very meaty brunch, Bloody Marys and Crosstown donuts to nurse even the worst of hangovers.  The Camden Town Brewery's daughter has been christened a winner- it's worth popping into, but don't expect the buzz of the mothership brewery bar.

    Formerly O'reilys, the Camden daughter is a branch of the Camden brewery which is based next to Kentish Town west station. I'm a fan of the Camden brewery and have been really looking forward to this place opening. However, it doesn't fully live up to the hype. Firstly it feels to me to be more like a burger joint than a pub. Most of floor space is take up with canteen like metal chairs and tables and feels quite sterile and not comfy. The beer is good and the food is ok. There's no formal dining here more an array of small savoury offerings perfect to accompany a few beers.

    Defiantly not your old fashioned pub but great food and beer. Popped in for dinner and a few rounds - the selection of beers is quite large with 8-10 from Camden brewing and a handful of other local brews as well. The bar made helpful selections and offered me a few tasters before I ordered my rounds. They even helped bring them to the table when I was ordering for the mates too - very helpful!The food was tasty - heavy on kebabs and fried dishes. Definitely not your average pub menu. It's a modern pub that plays modern music and has a short but well prepared menu.
