Campfire at Two Tribes

Two Tribes Brewery: Campfire lights up King’s Cross

The acclaimed King's Cross brewery will quite literally be ablaze with its new outdoor venue this summer

We loved the tucked-away N7 brewery Two Tribes so much when it first opened that we put it on the cover of our print edition.

If you haven’t been, the taproom is just past York Way’s junction with Agar Grove, an easy walk from most parts of many local postcodes: N1, N7, NW5, N5 and NW1.

And things quite literally hotten up this April, with the unveiling of Campfire, an all-new outdoor venue created to showcase open-air cooking by a whole bunch of renowned live fire chefs.

There’ll be exclusive new session ales and IPAs fresh from the brewery itself – their distinctive cans are everywhere now, aren’t they? – alongside an initial residency by cult pop-up sensation From The Ashes BBQ.


This is one we know well. Currently based at a hole-in-the-wall in Hackney Wick, the trio of Frank Fellows, Martin Anderson and Curtis Bell came together in lockdown to embrace the “holy trinity of smoke, fat and flavour.” We’re fans of their beef and pork buns; another tip is the ‘Del Piero’ savoury doughnut. Oh my.

With two custom-built shipping containers and outdoor seating, as well as that mesmerizing fire pit kitchen, Campfire will also host takeovers from other well-known chefs. There’s nothing better than watching the flames spit, pint in hand, right? Three more to look out for are The Frog’s Adam Handling, Ramael Scully and Genevieve Taylor from Bristol Fire School.

With music programmed by Peter Herbert, a former resident DJ of Cafe Del Mar in Ibiza, and a whole schedule of album previews, secret concerts and live streamed events, this is all starting to sound like a deliciously hedonistic little mini-break away, wherever you live in the capital. Book your flight now.

Campfire will launch on Saturday 17th April 2021 at Two Tribes Brewery, Tileyard Studios N7. Follow @twotribesbrew More info here. Read the story of Two Tribes Brewery in our earlier feature here.
