Harden's survey result
“Tucked away in Camden Passage”, this Islington institution is “still going strong after all these years” and remains a real “go-to place for family celebrations” for many north Londoners; as well as “a great place for a romantic dinner”. “The ordinary fascia hides a true gem inside”, leading onto “a modern, spacious and stylish interior” where the top seats are in the “lovely, light and airy back area”. It’s not a foodie kind of place, but the cooking is “contemporary and varied (the set menu never disappoints)”, and “staff are par excellence, always professional, but fun and cheery”.
“None of its charm has been lost over the years”, say fans of this “romantic” and “spacious” Islington stalwart, where the best spot is “eating on the terrace overlooking the lovely garden”. “The cooking is old school, but very enjoyable”.
“An old favourite” that “never disappoints” – this Islington veteran with a “lovely conservatory” and cocktail bar is run with high “professionalism” and has a “great buzz”. The “unexciting but safe food” has been “resting on its laurels” for at least a couple of decades now.
“Islington lacks upmarket restaurants”, and this “well-spaced” and “attractive” old veteran – complete with “good-looking conservatory and lovely outside tables on a warm day” – has a loyal (generally silver-haired) fanclub. It’s not a foodie fave rave though, with “cooking that’s more akin to banqueting than to haute cuisine”.
