The Castle is a delightful retreat on Pentonville Road in trendy, bustling Islington. There is always something exciting going on here such as the Tuesday quiz nights. The busy weekends attract the pub-crawlers whilst if you prefer a quieter atmosphere, simply sit back in the sofas anytime during the day and relax. Popular with the local offices at lunch, this place is ideal to join your colleagues for freshly prepared snacks, sandwiches, pies and daily specials. In the evening, you can come back to wind down after a hectic day in the office alongside the regulars. Featuring a beautiful rooftop Terrace and recently recommended in Time Out, this is the perfect spot to catch up with friends or wind the day away with a book and a bird's eye view of the busy world below, whilst listening to soothing Brazilian lounge music.

We only had the standard burger and although a little pricy at over £11 it was delicious especially the little sauce that it came with that is made by the chef.
The place was lively for a Wednesday afternoon and I liked the subtle...more
this was the very first pub I went to upon moving to london, so it has a special place in my heart! the castle is pretty small, but has a cosy atmosphere with a sun deck in the summer and fire place in the winter. The food they serve is pretty good and the prices for drinks are normal. I think it's a great place to go for a pint especially if you want to get away from busy upper street and...more
