Spacious walled garden for alfresco drinking

At a glance

Bar menu
Open all year

This is a Georgian gem of a pub in the Barnsbury conservation area of Islington that continues to serve good food using top-notch British produce. In winter, log fires warm the pub’s tastefully furnished interior, with the large walled garden and wisteria-covered pergola drawing the crowds in summer. The daily-changing menu includes roast pork tenderloin, wild garlic mash, rhubarb compôte and crab apple jus; whole roast sea bass, Atlantic prawns and chorizo; and pearl barley and celeriac risotto, squash, gorgonzola and roast garlic.
