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.

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!

Out of the Attic
A fab place for vintage finds and antiques, the stock is often spilling out onto the pavements.

Perfect stop for any Arsenal fan! Underneath the railway lines at Finsbury Park, it is open all of the time, not just match days.

An Islington institution, this Mediterranean restaurant is amazing value!

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.
