This place is ok, if maybe a little subdued due to the leaning towards food with the restaurant at the rear.

Youngs Ordinary, Special and Kew were available alongside a standard draught selection and, as mentioned, an interesting range of bottled beers. I found the two barmen that served me to be very friendly.

I would pop in here again if I was passing, but I wouldn�t go out of my way.

Great pub. Really good food and a chilled out place to have a cheeky pint in the sun as we discovered the other day.

Stumbled across the Marquess walking through the leafy backstreets of Islington and thought I would rest my laurels over a swift pint of Guiness. Ended up working my way through a fine selection of bottled beers with the guidance of a very helpful barman. I particularly enjoyed the Grozet from Scotland and the Paulaner from Germany. Also got a good selection of draughts including Addlestones, Kirin, Erdinger and Youngs ales. The sausage rolls also provided a very tasty stomach lining.

This pub has always been a solid place to go for a drink or meal. Although it is probably more expensive than most pubs the food is extremely good and I've enjoyed many a weekend roast here. I popped down last night and was delighted to see that It is now offering many of the most popular dishes on a new fixed price menu and is staggeringly good value - two courses for �12. I had a very nice cured loin of venison followed by brasied ox cheeks. would definitely recommend it

Good collection of bottled beers including Schenkerla Rauchbier, Fraoch, handful of Belgians and a few others I couldn't quite read from across the bar. cask offerings of a more ordinary nature, especially pricey as mentioned by previous reviewers. Although it's very much a restaurant (in the rear dining room especially), the front section still retains somewhat of a pub feel (vs similar places in the area like the Albion, the Barnsbury).
Food was decent but not exciting - I'll write a more detailed review of the food on a restaurant site, not here.
