Part of the popular Geronimo Inns chain, The Castle is situated directly in the middle of Pentonville Street and is known to be one of the cosiest and homeliest pubs in Islington. With its warm decor and comfortable furnishings it's a little haven from the bustling streets of N1.

Serving a delicious array of classic British gastro-pub food that caters for all tastes, accompanied by the wide selection of drinks ranging from ales, beers on tap and fine wines, you'll be spoilt for choice. With a selection of roast dinners available on Sundays and a diverse menu devoted solely to their love of burgers, the chefs certainly know what it takes to deliver hearty British comfort food.

The Castle is great whether you fancy a nice quiet meal or you need a lively pub for a Saturday night. With a fantastic roof terrace that sets it apart from other pubs in the area, this pub really does add something different to the Islington pub scene and is a real hit with local punters.

a great place to meet up with a group of friends on a Friday night. cheers visited The Castle - Geronimo Inns on 14 Jul 2017

Unfortunately we were not happy with all of our meals. We didn't want to make a fuss and spoil our day but we didn't enjoy The following meals; fish and chips- it was too greasy and the fig Bakewell tart- it was nothing like we imagined and none of us finished it or enjoyed it. I don't think we will be eating at the castle again. smiley visited The Castle - Geronimo Inns on 16 Jul 2017

Upon arrival we were told by the Deputy Manager that although we had chosen an option on the online booking form for the terrace, this was not possible and therefore had space inside only. When we asked if we could simply push two tables together on the terrace we were told no. Seeing our looks of disappointment, one staff member then offered us additional chairs so that we could sit on the terrace although 10 people around a table for four was a squash it was better than the Deputy Manager's complete unhelpfulness. Suggest the online form is changed to avoid further disappointment. visited The Castle - Geronimo Inns on 01 Jun 2017

Took q long time to pour simple drinks order - three diet cokes, an orange juice and a soda and lime. Wouldn't otherwise warrant criticism. The wrong food order was then brought to the table. Took about 5 minutes for the waiter to rectify, whilst the food was going cold. The Caesar salads were not very good. There was a lot leaf and way too much dressing. It came with anchovies, which were not in the description on the menu, and there was no cheese in it. Three shandies were then ordered which were served soda water instead of lemonade. Previously I've been here and it was good but seems to have gone quite a lot downhill. visited The Castle - Geronimo Inns on 27 May 2017

Cool pub in Angel with a rooftop for the summer that let's you rise above the N1 hustle. Good choice of beer and food is not too shabby.

Great service from Anna! Thank you. I would only suggest to ask for a credit card behind the bar rather than assume and open a tab without one This created complications as some members were adding drinks, they left and did not pay ( assuming the company were paying for it all) . It wasn't fair on the one's that stayed behind and ended up paying for it.. All in all. I would definitely be back ! visited The Castle - Geronimo Inns on 05 May 2017

First visit to this pub. Table reservation worth doing as it started to get busy. We enjoyed tasty fish & chips and a couple of pints (Aspall cider and Atlantic ale). Service was friendly and quick. visited The Castle - Geronimo Inns on 06 May 2017

Went on Saturday for my Birthday - nice pub, great roof terrace, reasonably priced drinks. Sadly the experience was marred by the fact I left my favourite hat and when I called to try to reclaim it, it hadn't been handed in/wasn't there. Not the pubs fault, but spoiled the experience a little. visited The Castle - Geronimo Inns on 25 Mar 2017

Varied menu with good price range and combination of dishes available including non-meat ones. Good atmosphere and music not so loud that is drowns conversation. Friendly service. Perfect for pre-Sadlers Wells show. Thanks. Will come again. visited The Castle - Geronimo Inns on 27 Jan 2017

Went in a party of six for lunch. Nice welcome from staff. Youngs bitter and mulled rum punch went down well. Food very good but coffee should have been hotter. visited The Castle - Geronimo Inns on 26 Jan 2017

The staff were nice and there was a good wine list. Let down by the food a bit which was a bit oily and heavy, although it was a good menu. The lentil salad had a lot of oil. The haddock could have done with a better balance of greens (ie more) and a bit less creamy sauce and did not need the addition of deep fried kale on the top which added to the grease. It was good but requires just a tweak to make it great. Claire visited The Castle - Geronimo Inns on 21 Jan 2017

Poor. Extremely rude waitress who was flippant and angry from the start. She also messed up our starter order. The food was greasy flavorless pub grub - no way near gastropub standards. On the plus side there was a nice Irish lady running the quiz, just a shame about her colleague's attitude. Wont be back! visited The Castle - Geronimo Inns on 20 Dec 2016

We went to The Castle for our work's Christmas meal/drink, the staff were friendly and helpful, the food was good and a good time was had by all. Recommended! visited The Castle - Geronimo Inns on 19 Dec 2016

Shocking lunch, Dined with a party of 8, all of which ordered from the Sunday roast menu. The roasts arrived stone cold and were then taken away and obviously microwaved one by one then brought back to the table. The food tasted like a microwave meal, soggy Yorkshires, soggy roast potatoes just really average and hugely disappointing for the price. We complained and the staff were nice enough to remove the food from the bill but it was still a shit experience. We were catching up with old friends and this really ruined it, all eating average microwaved food one by one... Don't think we'll be eating there ever again. visited The Castle - Geronimo Inns on 18 Dec 2016

We hosted drinks for our team and clients at the Castle after going to the Crystal Maze. The staff at the Castle were very welcoming and the front area of the pub which had been reserved for us was absolutely perfect. We pre-ordered various platters of food which arrived promptly and were tasty. A really good venue which catered for our group of 32 people perfectly. visited The Castle - Geronimo Inns on 01 Dec 2016

Friendly staff, quick service(not too busy as it was a Monday night). The table was the right size for the booking, they offered we could open a tab which was good training on their side. Good location of the table booked. Music was audible but not too loud so we could chat. Pork pies were good. London pricing for drinks but that's London. Only issue was on the Monday they close at 10pm which we hadn't taken into account. visited The Castle - Geronimo Inns on 24 Oct 2016

Booked a table for lunch for 8 people for my birthday. Gorgeous weather so managed to get a table on the roof terrace (wasn't reserved one on terrace despite requesting on booking). Sat down to be told they were short staffed so we would be quicker going up and ordering food and drink from the bar. When we did it was met with very rude staff. We were then told that the cooker was going to take at least another 30 minutes to start warming up despite it already being 1.30pm...! In the end we gave up and managed to get a table with friendly service and gorgeous food from the Pig and Butcher down the road. It all seemed very disorganised with very grumpy staff, a shame as looks a nice pub. catty visited The Castle - Geronimo Inns on 13 Aug 2016

The best thing about this pub is the rooftop terrace! When the weather is nice it's one of the nicest places to have a drink without being squashed. Great location and great service.

Beers are well priced, but the food is too expensive for what you get. Love the rooftop!
