Description

The Islington Townhouse, a stone’s throw from Angel Station, is fast becoming a spot known for its craft beers and sumptuous dining plates. Run by The Hippo Group, this beautifully decorated and perfectly positioned pub boasts a comfy cocktail bar, plenty of dining space and countless sofas to relax with a bottle of wine.

Spread over three floors, including several upstairs areas available for private hire, the Townhouse’s décor follows a traditional English pub theme with a few eclectic touches; a newspaper clad mannequin welcomes you to the upper floor underneath an ornate chandelier. Exploring the charming maze of the old townhouse allows you to find your perfect nook or cranny, as each room lends itself to a unique atmosphere; from the spacious vibrancy of the main bar to the plush homeliness of the snug.

Bringing fresh twists to pub classics, the Townhouse offers a culinary experience for all, whether you opt for sharing dishes (we recommend the crispy squid tentacles and calmari!) or frequently updated larger dishes drawing inspiration from nearby neighbour, Chapel Market, all at affordable prices.

With craft beers and ales sourced from local London breweries and including favourites such as Fourpure and Beavertown, we pride ourselves in finding exciting and uncommon selections. The Townhouse is also home to a wide range of new and old world wines, handpicked by Hippo’s Master of Wine, John Clevely. With a cocktail list that includes all your favourites, plus a few more, the Townhouse offers a drink to suit all tastes, best enjoyed with a heavenly slice of banoffee pie and a large helping of good company.

Cocktails lovely in the upstairs bar. Service was friendly. Food was nice but it took about 40 mins plus for a burger, sausage and mash and a cheese board to arrive. So that was disappointing... visited The Islington Townhouse - Hippo Inns on 14 Jun 2017

Joely's effiency & communication is exceptional ! She conveyed to the staff team at The Islington Town House exactly what our group wanted when it met last Monday . Everything was perfect - a quiet area closed off in a busy bar for our group's meeting, friendly and helpful staff and a welcoming environment ... very many thanks to all involved at The Islington Town House . visited The Islington Townhouse - Hippo Inns on 05 Jun 2017

Excellent night. We were from 'out-of-town' and the Islington Townhouse were wonderfully helpful with very fast responses to questions while we e-mailed back and forth to get our night just right. All the staff on the night were extremely pleasant and helpful, the canapés were absolutely delicious and our birthday evening was a great success. Thoroughly recommended this great venue. Thank you Islington Townhouse. visited The Islington Townhouse - Hippo Inns on 07 Apr 2017

Absolutely amazing people work here! All the staff was super lovely and so chill, all our guests had such a great time. When we ran out of food you guys helped get more out really quickly and on top of that it was delicious. The goats cheese tart disappeared in a second and got so many compliments! I'd recommend the Islington Town House any day!!! Xxx Nina visited The Islington Townhouse - Hippo Inns on 08 Apr 2017

The food was terrible and the service was bad. I had a salad that had table salt all over it making it nearly inedible. My husband had a fish and chips that had only a handful of chips, a tiny pot of peas and fish that consisted of more batter than actual fish. We went to watch the 6 nations, only to arrive and find that the staff had forgotten to put the game on and one of the TVs didn't work. I ordered a glass of wine and it turned out the bottle had been open for days and the wine had gone off. I had to ask for a new bottle to be opened. When I did so, the bar staff acted rude. We won't recommend this place and will be posting to trip advisor. visited The Islington Townhouse - Hippo Inns on 18 Mar 2017

Terrible. Took nearly an hour for food to arrive and then burgers were cold and fish and chips very greasy. They said they were short staffed, but it was a quiet Monday lunch time and not very busy. Server also had poor knowledge of beer on offer, and menus were wrong so told several times things were not available. Won't be going back. visited The Islington Townhouse - Hippo Inns on 06 Mar 2017

The pub is really well decorated - very cosy and inviting. All I would say is that there should really have been more people on the bar to meet the demands of customers and service was relatively slow. Vicky visited The Islington Townhouse - Hippo Inns on 31 Jan 2017

I cannot rate the Islington Townhouse high enough. The food was excellent and the service was beyond friendly and welcoming. I had nothing but compliments from our whole team on the food, which was inspired and a real refreshing take on a Christmas party. Coming from a group of finance workers who eat mainly in 5 star restaurants in the city their praise was a lovely complement to a pub I myself have now named my local. We will be back. visited The Islington Townhouse - Hippo Inns on 16 Dec 2016

The service wasn't very good. We didn't get the starters we ordered at all. We were grateful you fitted us in at the last minute. Probably wouldn't come again. visited The Islington Townhouse - Hippo Inns on 31 Dec 2016

Fab lunch. Twice baked soufflé amazing. Him indoors loves the octopus carpaccio but I preferred the saffron gin. And the other two I tried as well! Excellent service and a lovely atmosphere. Second visit and there will be more! Alison visited The Islington Townhouse - Hippo Inns on 27 Dec 2016

Reply from The Islington Townhouse - Hippo Inns

Hi, thank you for taking the time to give your feedback. The staff member you have mentioned has spoken with me about yesterday evening. I do apologise if she came across as rude, we were rather busy yesterday and were a little short staffed. I appreciate that this is not an excuse, merely an explanation. Please do pop back in so we can show you this is not our normal practice. If you have any further concerns, please do not hesitate to ask for Gavin. Regards, Gavin O'Brien
