Great burgers and they are reasonably priced. I'd say best burger I have had in Islington. We had 3 burgers and 2 sides of fries for £30. I'd recommend the bacon cheeseburger. You can order food at the bar and it comes out fast.

Pub Trivia is on Tuesdays nights, meaning most tables inside are reserved starting at 7pm, yet most people don't show up until 8pm when trivia begins.

Food wise, the burgers are literally to die for! If you're passing, you gotta stop by. They are conversation enders! Whatever you order is stupendous. My friend raves about the Kevin bacon burger, and I'm all about the halloumi burger (oops I...more
