While most of us think of glugging warm tinnies and sweaty seats when it comes to train travel in this country, there’s a romantic side that doesn’t involve people balancing bagels on strangers’ heads at 1am in the morning. Hoxley and Porter in Islington is the gorgeous reincarnation of this golden…
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.
