Some critics reason that composing the perfect drink is a science, while others argue it is an art. The Engineer in Primrose Hill near Regent’s Park magically blends a recipe of both, combining the traditional pub atmosphere and pioneering the successful gastro-pub movement.
Named for the visionary engineer, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, whose most famous creation is perhaps the Great Western Railway, the establishment has recently undergone a dramatic
refurbishment which ushers in the age of ingenuity, industry and enterprise of the Victorian era. Its refined, yet warm atmosphere makes for relaxing afternoons and evenings either in the picturesque garden or nestled on one of its plush booths.
To complement a delicious menu of pub favourites and seasonal offerings, the Engineer’s selection of beverages range from classy cocktails to hearty beers and ciders. Locally-brewed delights like the Camden Hells lager is a favourite with regulars. For the less courageous, there are plenty of other craft beers from around the world, offering a selection to suit most palates - from bitter, smooth and sweet, to dry and delicate.
There is an excellent wine list including some lip smacking vintages to be lingered over.. If you’re after something more colourful and imaginative, with or without a paper parasol, then ask for the cocktail menu. The Engineer prepares some ingenious concoctions as well as the beloved classics like the Bloody Mary.
One of the most popular watering holes in the Primrose Hill area, the Engineer is the perfect place for visiting a piece of history while enjoying a drink with family and friends.
