Down the road from Angel on Cloudesley Road, you'll find beaut traditional pub Crown making sure you get your fix of a gastro take on classics across a cosy setting. Think wooden beams and old school surrounds, plus everything from pan-roasted duck breast to sirloin on the bone and fish pie making the menu - plus a lineup of the finest Sunday roasts. And when the sun shines? Get outside to the quaint little garden.

The Highbury Barn Tavern

A little way out of Angel and towards the Emirates, you'll find The Highbury Barn Tavern making sure you can get your fix of a crackling fireplace, piled-high Sunday roasts, and gastro grub ranging from pork and cider pie to brisket burgers. Plus, this Arsenal FC pub shows all their games on a huge screen - perfect for loyal Gooners.

The Castle

Based on Pentonville Road in Islington, the Castle is a traditional pub that offers delicious food, great drinks and the homely, welcoming vibes. From fine wines and real ales to locally brewed craft beers and potent spirits, the menu caters to every taste. Don't miss the beautiful rooftop beer garden that's constantly drenched in golden sunlight come summer.
