The Baring, Hoxton

A quality local boozer. Good beers, really friendly staff and a great atmosphere, especially when the football is on. The landlord is an Villa fan as well so that helps. Food is good quality pub grub that is very filling and the Sunday roasts are huge and delicious. Ideal for a relaxing evening having a pint with the mrs.

The Myddleton Arms, Islington

This Islington boozer has recently changed hands (about time) and undergone a dramatic refurbishment. I have been in a few times now and always find myself coming back (it does help that it is only a 5 minute walk away!). The pub itself is laid out in a crescent shape with service from the bar all the way around. The decor is fresh and clean, the bar has been tidied up and it all looks rather impressive. The selection of drinks provide some good lagers; Amstel, Heineken etc, plus Landlord and Doombar, which I have been told are pretty good. As I am not an ale drinker myself I have very little knowledge on these fluids so couldn't personally comment! The homemade scotch eggs are a standout along with Ginger Pig sausage rolls if you happen to be hungry. The crowd ranges from young to old, Islington locals to the 'landed gentry', so it always has a nice, welcoming vibe and the weekends have been relatively busy when I have wandered in to get out of the cold or meet a pal. I would recommend this place, a nice new addition to the armoury of Islington watering holes without the pretentious aura that is normally associated with pubs in the area.
