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.

We booked a table several weeks ahead for 16 people in the evening after work. Arrived to find allocated tables not big enough for all of us to sit down and certainly not sufficient space for eating. Next door table similarly overbooked/under spaced for an...More

This place is great if you want a beer and has a lovely old english pub environment. But unfortunately the roast was terrible. The front staff were lovely and gave us a refund but their chef clearly had no idea how to roast a potato...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.

Interesting but perhaps a little overdecorated this pub has a very good selection of beers. It is situated in a back street and will not immediately be seen if you are walking along the canal. There is limited seating and so many drink outside. The...More

Popped in for lunch with friends and had a great time. Great recommendations for food by staff and they were helpful with drinks recommendations too. Beautiful old pub, just the sort I love and not too busy when we ordered. Great afternoon! Thank you
