    Fantastic Sunday roast - sharing plate was a hugely generous portion of perfectly cooked beef and sides. Great vibe and good service too.

    Lovely pub hidden down a residential street in Islington. Great food, especially the sharing Sunday roasts! Defo book if you're a big group. Good beer and wine selection. Kid and dog friendly.

    The lamb shoulder sharer was exquisite. They're great staff, willing to accommodate and great selection of wines. Doesn't have the pretense of Pig & Butcher.

    Excellent gastropub grub with efficient & friendly service. The small courtyard garden is a great place for a pre-meal drink.

    Amazing fresh food. The menu changes every day depending the products they have. The waitress are so friendly and explain all you need to know about the dishes. Call to reservate, it's full on dinner.

    The British gastro-pub fare. The beer and ales selection is on point. Old wooden tables, checkerboard floors, and board games. Penguin paperbacks drives the cozy vibe home.

    Great gastro pub with daily menus, good ales & wines. Plus professional and friendly service. Weekday lunch is often quiet

    Nice pub with great food. Not a lot of beer varieties but the ones they have, are great. Don't miss the little garden at the back

    Both a great neighborhood feel and gastropub level quality food that beat most London pubs. Worth going off the beaten path

    Good selection of beers, lovely courtyard. Staff is the lowlight here, unnecessarily condescending and haughty.

    Nice pub with charming dining room, the food is good and the menu changes regularly. The negative point is the staff is not friendly.

    Under new owners and refurbished throughout, a good mix of drinkers and diners, thoughtful choice of beers, wines and imaginative modern food, and seats in attractive back garden Read more

    Good choice of beers, but beware of their half pints: the glasses are really a third of a pint, but they'll charge you half.

    Really great selection of hot and cold bar food if you're a bit peckish but not enough to justify the quite pricey mains.
