See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
02/02/22 - on a very recent visit no cask beer was being served. Not yet known if this is a permament change.
29/07/18 - Reopened. Four new unused pumps (a bank of three and an isolated single), a recent visit saw two in use which given the time of year sounds sensible. The evening closing is described as "until late" so midnight has been assumed. The food serving times are not known.
After a long campaign against by CAMRA and local residents, planning permission was finally given for conversion of the upper floors to flats involving the loss of the first floor bar. From the Camden New Journal of 04/01/18, "After a long-running planning wrangle, which saw Faucett Inn go to a Whitehall planning inspector to appeal a decision by the Town Hall to block its scheme, it won permission to renovate upper floors and create a new function area on the ground floor. It is also building new toilets and a kitchen.
An extremely popular, multi-roomed corner pub, brimming with bric-a-brac and paraphernalia. With a patio garden to one side it is hard to miss the huge corner sign advertising the defunct Wests Brewery which it once was then passing to Charringtons. There is a fine bowed stained glass window. Sir Richard Steele (1672-1729) hailed from Ireland and was a literary man founding in his time both Tatler and the Spectator. Food served all day at weekends.
