Step off Islington's bustling Upper Street and prepare to embark on one hell of a drinking and dining adventure. This is Hoxley and Porter, a veritable diamond characterised as much by a striking decor as its intoxicating liquors and continental fare.

You'll be greeted by an opulent space overflowing with turquoise, teak and filligree gold leaf furnishings. Resembling a train carriage with its mythical colours and shadowy foliage, the venue brings together surrealist jungles and Victorian gentleman's clubs to create a really eye-catching interior design.

The modern British menu includes classics such as, pork belly, rabbit, pie and other traditional dishes, and they're all punctuated by influences from continental Europe, the Orient and beyond. The venue is open for brunch, lunch and dinner and also represents a great place to hold private functions too. There's a lovely cocktail list for your perusing pleasure, and fine wines and decadents spirits are heavily featured too. If you're lucky, you might be one of the drinkers chosen to visit The Crypt; the bar's flavour laboratory where you can see the expert mixologists at work.

An exotic venue with a unique interior and influences from all over the globe, Hoxley and Porter comes well recommended for those finding themselves with some spare time to kill in North London.

Hoxley & Porter - Restaurant Bar Review

While a train journey from Cape Town to Cairo may have landed Master Hoxley with a jubilant jewel and an infamous disappearance, a stroll down the road in Islington and a three course meal landed me in none other than unadulterated colonial bliss....

I visited this bar yesterday with a date and it was absolutely lovely! Beautifully decorated inside with a relaxed and sophisticated vibe. The cocktails were delicious and the staff were friendly and attentive.. I am already looking forward to returning!

I've been visiting Angel for a LONG time and only visited this gem last night. The music, the interior, the cocktails....WOW. The place has so much to offer, can't wait to return!

Sure, we had to wait a little while for cocktails but when they are as good as that, I'm prepared to do so. Its a comfy and chilled space and although we didn't eat, having glanced over at other diners food I can say I would definitely come back to try some for myself. Look out for the 'whatever doesn't kill you'

I have to agree with Ryan, I wasn't overly impressed with the service. Lovely cocktails once they finally arrived, I can totally understand complex cocktails taking time to make especially when its busy but I only ordered a mojito and there were only a couple of people in the bar, food once arrived was not what I expected I might return for a drink but wont be eating there again any time soon. More disappointed then anything, hopefully my next visit will be better.

Booked the £45 set menu for valentines day. Arrived on time for the 8:30pm seating, girlfriend's choices of lobster and mussles were both already gone! She was very disappointed and I spent most of the evening trying to cheer her up. My starter choice was also gone, and we were then offered an apology drink free. Girlfriend's choice not available AGAIN. A plate of oysters mysteriously appeared which we never ordered. Her drink came and it was wrong. Food arrived and it was mediocre at best, certainly not justifying the price tag (£100+ all told, we usually eat very well in Soho for around £50-70 total, for £120+ I expect excellent food and service). At the end of the meal I was presented a bill for the entire amount, despite the fact I had already pre-paid for the meal. Speaking of which, why did I bother booking ahead of time through designmynight and pay a booking fee when the normal price listed was £45 anyway? I'm sure this place is fine on a normal night for a drink and maybe live music, which was the only decent thing about the evening, but the quality of the food is lacking and the service clearly couldn't handle the volume at all.

Great food - good service and the cocktails were pretty awesome too. It was a bit of a tight squeeze for a big group dining though so probably best enjoyed in smaller numbers but was very much enjoyed.

Love this place. Really quirky feel to it and the cocktails were divine. Would recommend if you're in the area!!
