The Alpaca


The Alpaca is an independent pub, restaurant and first floor events space in the heart of Islington.

Serving modern British cuisine with pub classics and a European influence. Ingredients are locally sourced wherever possible; including from the fishmongers next-door. Craft beers are served alongside more recognisable Continental draught. The wine list has been carefully curated to include less recognisable varieties, natural wines and offering great value. The cocktail list is interesting as well as accessible.

The Alpaca's first floor bar is available to hire with standing room for up to 70 and room for 36 for a sit-down meal. With a brand new Bose sound system, private bar and air-conditioning, it is the perfect spot for any occasion.
