Boris Johnson lives down the road, but don’t let that scare you away: this is one of the best pubs in Islington. Cask ales and craft beers are the big draw, but they also do cocktails. This is the sort of pub you go to if you want to settle down for an afternoon of schmoozing or watching the big match on a large-screen TV. If you want a meal at the weekend, book.
