Where do Lower Holloway locals go?

The Lord Stanley

Just off Camden Road, this pub does the best sausage and mash!


A fantastic addition to the area, I love this Italian deli and café because of its tasty food and personable service.

Emirates Stadium

There is only one team in North London! A good day out....


This butchers sells award-winning meat. Simples.

The Sampler

The best place to quaff on the finest wines around without having to buy a bottle! Very highbrow.

The Highbury Barn

One of the most succulent chicken roasts you'll ever taste in a pub, with all of their meats supplied from the organic butcher just across the road.

Highbury Arts Club

Amazing place, so small that you may miss it if it isn't recommended! A family run business close to Highbury Barn, perfect for breakfast, brunch or dinner. They have now started doing jazz nights on a Thursday too.

The Canonbury Tavern

A public house since the early 1700's, The Canonbury Tavern was refurbished in 2009 giving the residents of Islington one of the best pub gardens in the city and a superb roast lunch on a Sunday. Moreover, the beautiful garden offers an escape from chaotic city life.

Franks Canteen

Delicious breakfast, brunch and lunch with a changeable menu.


Forget The Hawksmoor. This Argentinian steak restaurant serves amazing meat and has a very cosy ambience.


Not great if you're on a budget. However, if you want to push the boat out and want tasty Turkish-inspired food, you're in luck!

Mem & Laz Brasserie

An Islington institution, this Mediterranean restaurant is amazing value!

Blighty Coffee

A coffee shop with a difference! Great food, lovely staff, quirky décor and even better coffee, all in the heart of Blackstock Road. There's a lounge area and garden, complete with an air-raid shelter and table tennis, which is the perfect place to hide away from the hustle and bustle of Finsbury Park. It's more than a coffee shop, Blighty is a community.

69 Colebrooke Row

One of London's best kept secrets. The size of a small living room, but serving the best experimental cocktails around. The bar uses spirits and drinks that it infuses itself in a drinks laboratory and the staff wear lab coats.


The best European restaurant in London serving gluten free alternatives and delicious pizzas!
