A small to medium sized pub, which is also a fabulous theatre.

I haven't eaten there, so can't comment (though a friend was disappointed with the cold scotch egg she received). They have a nice selection of beers and wine, along with very friendly and quick bartenders. I'd definitely come back to drink and to try out the many options on offer for food.

Tiny theatre for fringe productions, upstairs of King's Head pub in the busy Upper street in Islington. Considered as one of the first pub/theatre places in London, definately worth your visit. Cheap drinks downstairs as well as cheap tickets for the theatre performances, some of which are quite interesting. more

A great little theatre style pub in Islington London.The small theatre is at the back of the pub which show fringe style shows. We went to see Margaret Thatcher Queen of the Game Shows which was fun. shows start around 9pm and seats are in the style of bench seats. It does get quite warm in there though! A fun night out for sure! more

The theatre is independent to the Young's pub we were told by the Bookings Manager who introduced the theatre and the show, Hello Norma Jeane, an interesting concept and story regarding the equally interesting life of Marilyn Monroe and a grandmother who claims to be her, written by... more
