Came here a few Sunday's ago and had a great afternoon. A friend organised his Birthday here so he'd reserved a table for about 16 of us at no cost, turned into a very nice and relaxed afternoon of eating and drinking. Choosing the Veggie option from a Sunday roast menu is a real minefield, often you pay nearly the... More

This is a pub in a suburban street, standing alone. The menu had no gluten free options marked, but the wait staff and the chef organised something for me and the food was really delicious. They had gluten free beer as well. Lots of other beer options for non-coeliacs too. The food for the rest of my group was enjoyed... More

Went for a friends birthday, had a lovely roast dinner, we were looked after by the very friendly staff. Also have a great selection on tap, and do a lovely g&t.

4 of us went there for dinner and drinks in January- the beer was very well kept- the staff were very friendly and the service spot on- all our food was good except that the potatoes ( whichever way they were done ) were cold- overall an enjoyable evening

I have visited this gastro pub on a number of occasions and have to say its a favourite amongst the numerous pubs in Islington. Its slightly tucked away but always seems pretty busy. Booked a table for two which was in a nice corner and staff were friendly and welcoming as always. The menu is varied with a good selection... More

I visited this gem with some close friends for lunch and was impressed by the friendliness of staff and the relaxed an warm atmosphere. Some dishes, e.g muscles were good but others could have been improved - two of us had fish and chips as our main and my chips were an old, thin overcooked and cool batch compared to... More

I've been here numerous times now, and bit of a journey from South London too, but definitely worth it! The food is great, every time, and the atmosphere is warm and inviting. Lovely lovely staff, unpretentious, great beer – a perfect little gem of a pub!

Fabulous, festive Sunday afternoon at The Crown; my new favourite spot in Islington! Tucked away down a pretty side street, this lovely pub is the perfect place for a delicious feed, and (one too many) bottles of wine. Highly recommend the belly of pork - generous portions, and DOUBLE YUM. Good selection of beers, and a warm and welcoming team,... More

We've a great reputation for our food and drink, so booking a table is always advisable.
