Meat, meat, and more meat. If you like the sound of that, then you’re well on your way to liking The Pig And Butcher. This Islington pub specialises in rare breeds of cattle, pigs, and lamb that they butcher on site for their daily changing menu. As long as you’re not vegetarian, vegan, or offended by very descriptive British farm chat, then The Pig And Butcher is perfect for a casual catch up with your favourite carnivores. They also do a mean Sunday roast.

Black Axe Mangal
Black Axe Mangal on Highbury Corner isn’t a typical restaurant. It’s loud, it’s fun, and it’s a little bit weird. And the delicious food is the same.
Trullo is the kind of neighbourhood Italian restaurant you’d find in an actual Italian neighbourhood, and the food is simply fantastic.
