Lord Stanley

Coming from the people who made the <a href="http://fancyapint.com/pubs/pub2033.html" target="_blank">Lansdowne</a> in Primrose Hill the dreadful place it is, hopes weren't high for the Lord...

The Unicorn

Two nearby but unconnected pubs have done a bit of a coincidental swap. With former rockers hangout the Old Kings Head having recently shifted it's focus to football, the Unicorn has done the opposite and become a live-music...

King's Cross Social Club

This large pub hidden away a few minutes from King's Cross station has recently been taken over by the people responsible for the Three Crowns in Stoke Newington, amongst others. Formerly the Golden Lion, its new name suggests...

The Castle

This is another outpost in the Geronimo chain and on walking in it was obvious. There's decent beer on the taps, a good (if gastro-leaning) menu and friendly staff. It's probably one of the more trendy versions of Geronimo's...

The King's

Its nice to see that not all places in N1 have succumbed to the "strip it out, play loud music and call it a bar" trap. So despite a recent sprucing up, which included painting the outside a different colour, this is...

Embassy Bar

Along with the nearby (now defunct) Social, Embassy was one of the original Islington bars to give the kids an alternative to the nearby scary boozers and insipid chain pubs. Whilst others have taken their time to catch up -...

Old Queen's Head

An Essex Road institution, the Old Queens Head has been around roughly for ever. It's a pub with a decidedly split personality. By day it's a pleasant place to a have a lone pint or a chat with mates, by night, especially at...

With the unimaginatively titled, 'Bar & Dining House' a distant memory The Winchester has settled into being one of Essex Road's less frenetic bars, compared say, to the perpetually rammed Old Queen's Head. Agrarian style...

6 St. Chad's Place

Nestling just off Gray's Inn Road, this place would never have been countenanced a couple of years ago. The redevelopment of Kings Cross is leading to some strange bedfellows. Yes, the area is still home to many of N1's finest...

One of the few proper pubs left on Islington's main drag. It's now a Nicholson's and does everything to the standards we've come to expect from them. The beer is good - Pride, Bombardier and guests on the many hand pumps,...

Northumberland Arms

The Northumberland Arms is still a rather grubby boozer on the King's Cross Road, which usually plays host to bunch of older, male locals. Entertainment comes in the form of a pool table, a juke box and footy on the box - sport...

The Angel

The Angel is arguably a below average Wetherspoon, with its location working against it. Inside you'll find a somewhat rather transient crowd who are meeting up before moving onto the other delights of Islington. Although some...

A former blacksmiths, Smithy's proclaims itself to be a wine bar, but it's a bit more than that. Laid out across two rooms, a smaller bar area with cosy booths and the original cobbled floor, and a larger, more spacious area...

Filthy MacNasty's Whiskey Cafe

Any pub that has pulled a pint for Nick Cave can't be doing much wrong. A short stagger to Angel tube, Filthy MacNasty's is a bit of a hidden gem in the cesspit of Islington theme and chain bars. Offering a cracking range of...

The Alwyne

For a long time, The Alwyne Castle was a pretty average boozer - mostly serving the nearby estates and Arsenal fans on match days, but it eventually got a makeover and it's been gastrofied for a while now. It was inevitable, we...

Zenith Wine Bar (ex-As Good As It Gets)
