A truly unique pub in the heart of Islington.As the only pub in the British Isles to bear the name, The Island Queen really is one of a kind. Tucked away on Islington's quiet backstreets, "the Queen" is a quaint oasis of comfy sofas, high ceilings and intriguing original features reminiscent of a classic London gin palace. Our deceptively bijou bar serves a gargantuan range of speciality drinks, while our colonial-inspired interior - embellished by etched glass and hand-painted mirrors - makes for a uniquely cosy backdrop in which to savour them.

Quaint Victorian pub with a few tables outside for smokers/brave drinkers (cold and wet when I visited). Looks like it could be a gastropub but unfortunately we were going on to a restaurant for a meal. Menu looks tempting but I didn't try it. Good...More

Relaxed pub in leafy Angel street, lots of indoor plants, high ceilings, good food and board games. Trendy place just off the high street, with a traditional London 'island' bar.
