Slug & Lettuce, Islington
We've known this pub for a long time and to be honest it hasn't really changed much in all that time. For a chain pub, this one makes up in size, location and natural charm for what it lacks in personality. It does the basics well enough and we can't fault it for that. Although even with a couple of odd rooms upstairs (which can be hired, apparently), this pub still gets very crowded of an evening. Not a horrible pub by any stretch, but it can get a little overbearing at times. Good place to meet for the cinema across the road.
