Bastille (ex Centuria)

We've heard this one has now closed. It was probably too far up St Pauls Road for what they were attempting and one can't help wonder if things might have been different if they'd just stuck to being a pub.

Snooty Fox

The Snooty Fox is a loungey pub that's (mostly - see below) just got better as time has gone on and is obviously a hit with the locals. When we were last in, there were small groups of people dotted about the place having a...

The Alma

The Alma can be pinpointed as having the feel of the first wave of gastropub makeovers. Loungey furnishings at the front of the pub and more formal tables at the back, it's a look that feels almost old fashioned compared to...

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...

The George Orwell

Always good to see someone making a good go of things - and the current landlord of the Orwell does seem to be working hard at it. It's always been a bit of a difficult spot, not quite Islington proper, not quite Highbury and a...

This historic pub, a reputed haunt of George Orwell, was opened in 1730 and reopened in 2009 following an extensive revamp. It's a handsome Georgian building, in a charming part of Islington, with a huge garden. It used to be a...

The Monarch

For every scary locals' boozer we recommend avoiding, it's always a pleasure to be able to recommend one less, well, scary. From a rather average exterior, the Monarch initially drew us in with its ornate etched bar and a...

If size is everything, then the Junction must be more than contented with itself. This huge rectangular building certainly packs the punters in on a weekend and has more than enough room to accommodate them all. Despite being...

It's been a while since the Lord Clyde transformed itself from Irish boozer Kendrick's Bar and remodelled itself as a "food-led pub". At the the time, the idea that the penultimate vestige of old Islington's public...
