Enjoy yourself in a beautiful pub tucked away from the hustle and bustle of North London, the perfect retreat for those who are looking to relax with friends and family throughout summer out on their terrace balconies.

They have a fantastic range of cask ales, craft beers, ciders and flavoured spirits, as well as a beautiful selection of fine wines from around the world. Their seasonal menu can take you from morning brunch, to a light lunch or a more hearty dinner, all using fresh local ingredients with dishes to suit a variety of dietary requirements. Fancy a British classic but with a modern twist? They have you covered. 

With summer just around the corner, it's a perfect excuse to drink and eat whilst catching up with friends and loved ones. The kitchen team are very passionate about creating traditional British pub classics, but adding their own creative modern twists to make them even more special. Their summer menu will really get you in the mood with bright seasonal flavours, delightful specials and colourful vegan dishes. Push the boat out and try one of their delicious Sunday roasts, they're considered to be among the best in Islington.
