Have been there couple of times, standard fare. It is a better place in summer when the roof garden is thrown open with Pimms and the Bar-B-Q!!! Very crowded though and difficult to get attention of the staff. Resonantly priced and good ambience.more

The drinks are good though...more

Just around the corner from Angel is the Castle on Pentonville road. This charming yet elegant little pub offers cosy couches, a step up from your standard pub range, and some excellent little half pint beer mugs for a bit of variety. We were quite entertaining by the glassware (Grant got a mini-beer mug, I got a mini-goblet) and...more
