About us

Situated in north London's leafy Primrose Hill, The Engineer is named after Isambard Kingdom Brunel, one of the Victorian age's most celebrated mechanical and civil engineers. Our recent refurbishment has returned the pub to its former glory.

Today, the Engineer is a relaxed, informal Primrose Hill pub, specialising in fresh, seasonal food, plus top-drawer beers, wines and spirits, and warm, friendly service.

We're close to Regent's Park, London Zoo, Camden Market, Regent's Canal and Camden Lock. So you can easily pop in for a spot of lunch or supper, in between enjoying some of north London's best attractions.

Loved every bit. A little of an old and upper class vibe but the food was really good. The beer variety was ok. The music is very low. Acoustics is ok.

I booked the Brunel Bar at The Engineer on Saturday 16th for a group of 16 for the xmas set menu. We had the room for 4-5 hours and honestly cannot fault the service we received. Angelo and his team were so so helpful, put on Christmas music for us, and the addition of having our own bar in the room made drinks super easy. Special shout-out to the pineapple mezcal margaritas which were so good. Set menu was £42.50 and food was good throughout. We preordered by sending over a Google sheet rather than on design my night, but everything was great and came out at the same time, and nothing was missing / wrong which is rare with big group orders. It’s the first time we’d done an xmas meal like this altogether and everyone’s feedback was great, meaning we’ll more than likely be back next year. Thank you again to the team - we loved it 😊

Booked the Engineer room at The Engineer for our Christmas get together. Suffice to say, that it didn’t disappoint. We had the festive menu for £42.50. 3 courses with generous carvings of perfect cooked roast turkey. The vibe was absolutely festive and Angelo and his team made sure we were well looked after. Thanks guys, we’ll be back next year!

Interesting name for a pub but it has it's history and is at the corner of a quiet neighborhood. It's like a maze inside with us taking frequent turns to enter the good sized outdoor seating space. It was pretty comfortable outside on the couch with heaters and blankets. They don't disappoint in the drinks department as expected but the food left me disappointed. I got the fish and chips in which the fish fillet was pretty thin and the batter was very greasy. The chips advertised as "triple cooked" didn't seem so and were not crispy and felt like a portion of frozen chips dumped in oil and then on my plate. Sourdough bread was ok. The veggie burger was burnt to ashes along with the bun and when a member of staff was called to give feedback, they tried to reason it out by saying that burger patties are usually well done ignoring the black layer on both the party and the bun. They took it back and we didn't order another one. The sausages and mash and scallops were good. The Basque cheesecake was not caramelised enough and didn't hit the mark with us. The place is pet friendly and is clearly a hit with people seeing the crowds coming in as the evening progressed but the interiors need better lighting and a proper clean/ventilation to clear out that lingering unpleasant smell in it. Best stick to the drinks menu and head out for your food as we didn't feel it was at par with the prices we paid.
