I went to this restaurant with my friend on a weekend for a meal. We came to order on time but the kitchen was nearly closing. We ordered fish and chips and my friend ordered bannoffee pie as a dessert. We had barely tucked into our meals when suddenly the dessert was brought in the table with explanation kitchen closes...

Hitchcock enthusiasts need look no further than this tastefully decorated pub on an otherwise unremarkable stretch of road in Islington, near the site of former studios used by the maestro. Photographs, film posters, and artefacts from Hitchcock films prevail. The Sunday roast is not bad either, alongside a good selection on the mains menu. It is also dog friendly! Well... More

Lovely unique ambience, good beers and really friendly & helpful staff. I had an issue with my food when it first came out and the barman (Warren) couldn't have been politer or more willing to help, and got me a new burger sorted in a jiffy and I really appreciated his great attitude. Only bit of constructive feedback I'd give... More

I recently visited the North by Northwest and had a great experience! The food was delicious and reasonably priced and the service was quick and efficient. In particular Andy, the guy behind the bar, was friendly and helpful and there was a great atmosphere in the beer garden without it being too loud or overcrowded. Will definitely be going here...

Having worked right near this pub for 6 years I have seen it through highs and lows in management and I am sad to say it's seen better days. 6 of us came for lunch and were immediately surprised by the massive menu and dramatic range of prices (sandwich for £5 or salad for £14.50). We ordered a variety of... More

We have made this our regular local since its re-incarnation. It is now a themed pub in honour of Alfred Hitchcock whose Gainsborough Studio is just down the road. There is a life size waxwork of Hitchcock behind the bar and bird models all around the seating areas. Posters from Hitchcock's movies adorn the walls. Screens show Hitchcock movies with... More

The food is amazing and the staff are really lovely! I just wish they would have a more interesting range of beers, rather than the usual standard stuff like Guinness and Amstel.

Having had a complete makeover and new people running it this pub is friendly, has decent food and an interesting interior. Hopefully it will thrive unlike its previous incarnations, so only judge it by recent reviews.
