Dire. Waited 5 minutes to not get served, mug punter beside me accepted 2 " pints " about 80% full, 4 staff behind the counter, only 1 serving. Avoid like the plague.

An awful, awful refurbishment - it's like they've tried as hard as possible to make it as soulless as they can. There are so many better pubs in the area. Avoid.

Whoever refurbished this boozer should be banned from ever touching another pub. Awful place.

I disagree with most of these reviews.
The "old" Canonbury was tired and dated and long due an overhaul.
The "new" Canonbury has had a fantastic refurb that has really brought it back to life.
Regarding the prices, what do people expect??? This pub is right in the heart of the most expensive and exclusive part of Islington. �4.00 for a pint of Kronenbourg is worth it in this place because the surroundings are superb, the beer garden is the largest in London and I know numerous dreadful pubs in the vicinity that will charge you �3.80. Come on people an extra 20pence!! It hardly breaks the bank.
We live very close to the Canonbury and whenever anyone visits this is where we take them.
We have never had a bad meal here and have always been impressed with the quality and quantity of the food. Their Burgers are superb and very well presented. A particular favourite is the pork belly which comes with pigs cheeks. Absolutely delicious.
The Canonbury is what it is. A bar and restaurant. It is not a pub.
If you want a traditional pub, and I regularly visit traditional pubs in the area, the Canonbury is not for you.
It is unashamedly modern and is a great place to have a meal or just a nice jug of pimms in the garden.
I do however agree with some aspects of the service. All is great when the place isn't too busy, friendly courteous staff who always greet you with a smile, but when it's really busy the service level drops and it can take some time to get served. I can only assume this is down to extra part time staff who don't have a clue. The owner needs to get this problem sorted as it certainly annoys customers and should be fairly simple to get right.
Visit during the week when it's not to busy and you won't be disappointed.

just another middle class pub that specialises in overpriced average (or below average for my overcooked burger on a burnt roll with cold chips, �12.99). yawn... what's wrong with proper pubs???

nice beer garden though.
