We have been coming here for years.....probably been 15 times overall; Fredericks is the sort of place you come because know what you are going to get, that it will be good food - not earth shatteringly innovative or exciting - but nicely cooked and consistent, and decent value for what it is. Most recent trip was on Mother's day, with an enjoyably retro fixed menu at £30 per person (roast beef, coq au vin, bakewell tart, black forest gateaux etc). Each of the dishes we had was tasty, nicely presented, and service was good (though they do have a lot of staff, so we were asked every few minutes if we were happy.....but better that way than neglect and lack of interest). We ordered extra chips, as their chips are usually sensational, and we were not disappointed. The majority of the restaurant is under a high glass ceiling, which seems to work well in different seasons and temperatures, and is lovely and light even on a grey winter’s day. Generally you get a good mix of groups and couples, and it provides a suitable atmosphere for both, and amongst the hundreds of Islington restaurants it offers that comfortable, slightly “old school” environment and cuisine if you want a change from the multitudinous ethnic offerings of Upper Street.
