Corbin & King’s “perfect local brasserie”, “with outside seating by Islington Green”, was reopened as a rare bonus from the pandemic. (Having decided pre-Covid that the venue wasn’t working for them, C&K then found themselves unable to off-load the site due to the downturn, so decided to revisit their decision to close it). “Islington really needs this place, and they’ve found their feet at last”, “with a menu that is rather less focused, but still works for brunch, lunch or dinner”. “It was pure comfort to be able to come back to Bellanger, as it had been sorely missed, and going back felt like a warm hug!”.

“Pretty much the only ‘grown-up’ restaurant on Upper Street” – Corbin & King’s “elegant” Islington outpost is a “spacious”, “clubby and wood lined” operation that makes “a classy destination for anyone at any time – be it for a drink, a snack or a meal” (and is kid- and dog-friendly too). The “unusual and interesting” cuisine – schnitzels, “good tartes flambées, hearty sausages (try the aligot mash), steaks” – aims to recreate that of an Alsatian brasserie and is “decent, if a bit uneven” (ditto the service). “Great range of breakfast options, too, and the atmosphere makes it feel special, whether it’s a business meeting or you’re lingering at the weekend”.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
