Public houses of Barnsbury

As Londoners, at Cozee we are deeply attached to our weekly attendance to our local pub. Why should you be different in the place where you are going to live? That is why we have been testing and reviewing all the pubs in Barnsbury. As a matter of fact, we didn’t… But we would have loved to. Here is then the list of the greatest pubs of Barnsbury

Pub name Name Address Description
Albion 10 Thornhill Road London N1 1HW A very beautiful, late Georgian, ivy-clad building which was once a coaching inn. The Albion won The Observer Food Monthly award for “Best Sunday Lunch 2009” and is one of The Independent’s “Top 50 Sunday Lunch Venues” and The Guardian’s “Best Pubs in the UK”. Example dishes include Lamb Shoulder Shepherds Pie with Buttered Carrots for £14.50 and Smoked Haddock & Salmon Fishcake w Peas a la Francaise & Soft Poached Hen’s Egg for £15.50.
Alpaca 84-86 Essex Road London N1 8LU Closed for approx 2 months from beginning of Jan 2020 for a comprehensive refurb and now reopened as The Alpaca – we were reassured this would not have any impact upon its listed features.
Alwyne Castle 83 St Pauls Road London N1 2LY Trading for a while as just The Alwyne (the Alwyne family were Earls of Northumberland and Lords of Canonbury Manor), the pub is now a typical Islington upmarket refurbishment with voluminous sofas, low tables and exposed ducting. Gastro-pub style food is offered daily, for fuller details go to their website with sample menus. There is a large outside seating area with patio heaters. Tuesday quiz nights. Disabled people will welcome the ramped access and accessible toilet. As well as the draught cask beers a selection of Czech pilsners, German lagers and American “craft” beers are available.
Angelic 57 Liverpool Road London N1 0RJ Formerly The George, a Greene King pub, this is an imposing Victorian pub next to Sainsburys; which in its current incarnation places it firmly into the gastro camp. It is large and open yet still retains some original features, namely the bar areas and support pillars, ceiling and tiles above the back bar, windows, door and fireplace. The huge windows let in lots of light and the sofas around the fireplaces are popular spots. An indoor fountain by the basement toilets was an unusual feature. Food served through the day goes all the way from snacks to full meals (steaks, burgers, sausage & mash). Hugely popular with the local, young affluent set.
Baring 55 Baring Street London N1 3DS InJuly 2022 The Baring reopened as a quite posh gastropub/restaurant with seating area at the bar but most tables set up for dining (though when visited some punters were just having a session). Reopened under the management of Adam Symonds and chef Rob Tecwyn. Oct 2023 – one cask beer from Five Points, keg offerings from Anspach & Hobday, Five Points and Harbour.
Camden Head 2 Camden Walk London N1 8DY A marvellous example of a Victorian pub, Grade II listed, built in 1899 and restored in 1969 by architect Richard Gradidge. It was then that the pub lost its separate bars (clearly evidenced by the three splendid entrances, albeit one’s blocked off); sections of the original partitions, with the engraved faceted glass, being reused to form part of the alcoves. The island bar remains the same with a splendid clock from Pond’s of Clerkenwell and a blown glass gin bottle. Most of the etched, bowed windows are original although some were replaced as exact replicas in 1969. Stained and painted glass panels in the function room come from a nearby, demolished pub. Beautiful fireplace is original although tiles added during a more recent refurbishment. Waiter bell mechanism remains. Large outside terrace. Comedy club nightly free. The nearby area is packed with antiques shops and similar establishments. Beer range varies.
Canonbury Tavern 21 Canonbury Place London N1 2NS Reverted to its original name in 2016. Two-thirds devoted to restaurant space. Comfortable modern furniture. Very large garden area to side and rear. In 2014 became an accredited member of the CAMRA LocAle scheme, beers may be sourced from various London breweries such as Sambrook’s, Hammerton and Hackney. Sunday quiz. No local beers found Jan 2024. In 2015 taken back by Young’s into direct ownership/operation. It has has been a public house since the early 1700’s and boasts a rich and varied history.
Castle 54 Pentonville Road London N1 9HF The Castle is open following refurbishment on a visit made on 15th April 2023.
Cellar Taps 125 Newington Green Road London N1 4RA There used to be six handpumps but now there are 3 pouring cask beer – we think Doom Bar will be a regular and N1 perhaps as well. Changed name to Cellar Taps some time in 2022.
Central Station 37 Wharfdale Road London N1 9SD Formerly Prince Albert. Long recognised as one of London’s “best and innovative” independent late-night venues for the gay and lesbian community. For details of all events and exact food times visit their website. B&B double and single rooms available.
Compton Arms 4 Compton Avenue London N1 2XD Under new ownership and now reopened and given a lick of paint and new wood floor amongst other details but with the layout unchanged. Three to four ales, though how ‘regular’ they’ll be remains to be seen. Now owned by Nick Stephens (Locals Club Ltd) of the Gun in Well Street, Homerton. Belly is the new Kitchen at the Compton Arms after the FourLegs residency came to a close (see their website). Table bookings are only take for food.
Crown 116 Cloudesley Road London N1 0EB Sept 2023 – REGULARS are campaigning to ensure their treasured pub is preserved forever after it was put on the market. More at https://www.islingtontribune.co.uk/article/save-the-crown-plea-as-pub-bids-are-closed
De Beauvoir Arms 113 Southgate Road London N1 3JS Large corner Victorian pub which was the Jolly Farmers for more than a century until it acquired a poor reputation. The person who took it over called it the Dog & Dumplings, he looked through a list of pub names and chose that because there was only one other in the country.
Drapers Arms 44 Barnsbury Street London N1 1ER Period pub re-opened in 2001 after being closed for over 3 years and reverting to its original name. Built by the Drapers Livery Company it probably originally had three bars. It has been opened up around a central bar and three fireplaces, and has a light and airy feel. It has a mixture of pub furniture, dining tables and settees. Apparently, Islington Labour Party was founded here in an upstairs room, so now you know who to blame! The pub closed again in 2008 but reopened bought by Ben Maschler (son of restaurant critic, Fay Maschler), who has expressed a firm commitment to keeping the Drapers very much as a pub for locals, as well as one offering good food and wines. Certainly, the comprehensive refurbishment has been sensitively handled and the pub and upstairs dining room look all but the same as before. The intention is to continue with a policy of regular guest beers and there are three real ales on at present. Per their website, their dining room is available for private hire for parties of up to 50 people.
Duke of Cambridge 30 St Peter’s Street London N1 8JT Set on a corner, the Duke is very much a gastro pub with a range of up to four organic cask beers which may come with no finings, so don’t judge the beers with your eyes! There are large plain glass windows, which gives the pub a light airy feel with the dark blue ceiling being offset by the beige walls. The wooden floors and tables add to the bistro atmosphere. A smaller, more intimate eating area at the back of pub leads to a courtyard with seating. There is additional outside seating at the front. The pub is certified by The Soil Association and, as you will see from their website, they have a very ethical policy.
Eagle 2 Shepherdess Walk London N1 7LB The Eagle is a very cosy pub with a warm welcome from the staff. The pub has four real ale pumps, with three real ales on at the time of a visit in May 2023 – being Salt Tweed, Birmingham Pale Brummie & Bays Orangutan. Also has a QR code you can scan to see what Real Ales are on next. Traditional British pub food is on offer, including Sunday roasts. In Summer the beer garden is a real asset and is the perfect way to spend an evening.
Earl Of Essex 25 Danbury Street London N1 8LE A craft beer house, 4 cask handpumps plus plenty of craft keg (up to 14 taps) which did have its own on-site brewery but this ceased operations some time ago. Real ale comes from an ever changing list of breweries both local and national. In addtion two real ciders are served an handpump.
Engle Field 340-342 Essex Road London N1 3PB After considerable building work reopened in April 2021 with a new name – Engle Field – it’s at the junction with this eponymous street. The operators also run the Hunter S. On a visit on 13/01/24 despite all the pump clips facing the customer, only Landlord was available.
Famous Cock Tavern 259 Upper Street London N1 1RU Reopened in Feb 2018 after a £600k investment by Stonegate which has brought the basement back into use as a jazz music venue – the Jam & Rye bar (open from 5pm and all day Sunday). Both craft and cask beer are advertised. It is a large single room pub with booths and larger tables at front street-side entrance, adjacent to Highbury and Islington station. Sports on TV screens dominates and can be loud, sometimes two different games are being shown. Outside drinking and smoking area at the back. The beer range will vary from established larger regional breweries.
Fellow 24 York Way London N1 9AA Revitalised as a gastro pub as a part of the Regent Quarter development by King’s Cross station. Reopened in 2008, renamed after a 1990s racehorse. Ground floor bar is in a very modern, open-plan style with an open kitchen and on first glance you might think it was a restaurant. Upstairs is a roof terrace and at the top, another bar/function room. For food serving times visit their website. The lease was acquired by Young’s in Oct 2014 and they announced their intention to add it to their (now defunct) Geronimo brand of pubs
Fox on the Green 1 Islington Green London N1 2XH An impressive building occupying a corner site on Islington Green with terrace seating. Refurbished in April 2016.
Foxglove 209-211 Liverpool Road London N1 1LX Feb 2022 – Several passes over the weeks then a visit last night and all occasions have revealed two cask ales (ELB’s Foundation and Quadrant on my visit) then two unused pumps. Now cosy and low lighting.
George & Vulture 63 Pitfield Street London N1 6BU Newly refurbished in February 2008. A single traditional large bar now restored to its comfortable Victorian splendour. Open fire. Large leather sofas and traditional oak tables. Popular with rugby enthusiasts and pub quizzers on Tuesday nights. Large outside seating area on the streets. They boast to be the tallest pub in London – since 1870. Well worth the walk up from Old Street tube. Food comprises Sour Dough Pizzas and Sides from an open kitchen, Sunday roasts (noon – 18.00) plus meat platters.
Hanbury 33 Linton Street London N1 7DU This is a pleasant and surprisingly large street corner pub in the back streets of Islington. Originally called the Hanbury Arms. It has recently been taken over by True Pub Co., refurbished and re-opened in October 2020. It has up to 4 Real Ale Taps and 3 Rotating Craft Beer taps along with a range of world & premium beers.
Hemingford Arms 158 Hemingford Road London N1 1DF Built in 1855, and rebuilt in the early 20th century, this former Friary Meux house was originally four rooms, now merged into one, but with a number of drinking areas. Listed carved mahogany back cabinet embellished with carved lionheads, and incorporating old style bar cash office, few of which survive. Walls adorned with old theatre posters, enamel advertising plates and pictures. One of the earliest gas pressure gauges still in existence is here. Ceiling festooned with anything you can think of, musical instruments, tricycles, old lamps, – you name it, it’s there. There are 5 handpumps at front with 4 currently in use. The 2 at the rear seem to be essentially for decoration.
Hen & Chickens 109 St Pauls Road London N1 2NA Situated on Highbury Corner opposite Highbury & Islington tube and over-ground station the main attraction of this establishment is the upstairs theatre which stages theatrical performances and live, mainly rock, music, hence the unconventional opening hours. The downstairs bar, however, operates as a normal(ish!) pub and retains some of its traditional Victorian features including nice tile work under the dado in the bar.
Hope & Anchor 207 Upper Street London N1 1RL A famous music pub which still keeps its end up. Music in the basement (usually Friday and Saturdays) and a juke box. A one-roomed pub on the ground floor with lovely arched windows, now of course totally see-through. The usual Islington style of mixed tables and chairs. Fom the pub’s own website –
Hunter S 194 Southgate Road London N1 3HT At times during the latter half of 2022 cask beer has not been available here but the position of having one or two real ales seems to have steadied. Landlord is favourite. The operators also run The Englefield in N1. The food hours are not shown on their website and are based on info we received in 2021.
Island Queen 87 Noel Road London N1 8HD In May 2023 a 50th Anniversary Award was made to the pub as it had been serving cask ale and been an entry in CAMRA’s first Good Beer Guide and is still selling cask today. The beer then was Charrington’s IPA. So one beer then and twoe now – but in the interim the other 3 handpmups were often in use and hopefully sales will recover to allow another cask beer to appear.
Islington Town House 13 Liverpool Road London N1 0RW Situated conveniently for Chapel Market traders, locals and visitors alike. After a period of closure, has become Hippo Inns sixth site, a joint venture between Enterprise Inns and Geronimo Inns founder Rupert Clevely. From a company news release, “There is a large bar area, a snug, open bar area and dining area available for hire for up to 26 covers. The modern light fittings and artwork are juxtaposed with traditional British pub features, including wooden beer pumps, wingback chairs and original features from the building. The space features artistic attractions such as a life-size mannequin, ornamental birdcages and gold metallic globe lights. The food menu features a selection of small plates focusing on modern and creative dishes alongside favourites.”
