The Regent (it's 'Prince' prefix now consigned to history) is tucked away off Upper Street and had a renovation a few years ago, making it smaller on the ground floor than before, while gaining a bright and airy feel and a basement bar. It's a bit gastro-tastic now and beer wise, there were two beers on the taps, but for the most part it's lager, lager, lager. Our last visit found a cross-section of local Barnsbury residents having a relaxed start to the weekend (with kids in tow), while tucking into a selection of tasty-looking wood-fired pizzas. The high ceilings and spread of hard surfaces means it looks like it could get noisy in here when busy and some plants or curtains would probably provide a more intimate feel. Nonetheless, this is an okay place which adds nicely to an area filled with too many high-end gastropubs for it's own good.
