Suggested this place to a friend as I live a tube ride away and it was one of the few places remaining for me to do in Time Out's list of best beer gardens in North London. Well, the pervading sentiment is the following: is it a pub and beer garden? At £4.20 a pint for the Deuchars I should have felt the warning signs straight away. Then, on proceeding to the garden, half of the tables had the damned signs on them and we had to stand. Not too bad on reflection, but I don't really do pubs for food, let alone look favourably on pubs that devote about three quarters of their space to diners. That's not what a pub is. If I'm hungry and want pub food, I go to Wetherspoons. And after two, we ended up in the White Swan and paid £7.50 for two beers and chips. Job well done.

Won't be returning, not because of rudeness or slow service or anything, but because it doesn't have what I look for in a pub; much the opposite in fact.

Not sure that this place should still be on BitE as it is a restaurant masquerading as a pub. 90% of floor space has been given over to dining, so God forbid should you want to spend a whole evening sitting down with friends enjoying a drink or two. The food is very nice and the staff are pleasant but as soon as you finish eating, your table will be turned and the dining conveyor belt will carry on while you are left standing squeezed into the small area that still qualifies as a pub. Beer selection of Ringwood Bitter and Deuchar's IPA isn't particularly exciting either. There are better places to drink around here and the location is awkward too so if anyone were to ask me for a pub recommendation for the area, I would never suggest this place.

Spent a very pleasurable Sunday afternoon there celebrating a 30th birthday and despite all the crap reviews around was pleasantly surprised...good selection of beers and a good sunday lunch menu all catered for by responsive, if rushed-off-their-feet, staff.
VERY Expensive and the epitome of Islington 'millionaires row'...but then what do you expect in a lovely part of Islington?

Had a pleasant visit her on a Friday (Early) lunchtime. Barmaids excellent and couldn't do enough to help. Had a nice couple of pints of Ringwood whilst sitting in the sun filled garden. A pint was nearing the �4 mark, but what do you expect in the Islington area with it's Millionaire neighbours?

5 bar staff managed to do an impressive job of ignoring me, the only customer, for a good couple of minutes. A couple of them looked busy but the other 3 were just leaning.

And they had no ale anyway. And when they do its close on 4 pounds a pint.
