The new permanent home for Four Legs (previously a pop-up at The Compton Arms in Islington). Jamie Allan and Ed McIlroy have moved on after two years in N1 and converted the former Auld Triangle pub in St Thomas’ Road – with a little help from a Kickstarter campaign – to relaunch it.
Harden's survey result
“The Dexter burgers are a cult classic by now” (“well-seasoned, crisp and juicy, with meat overflowing from the bun”) and the “top choices of the young and trendy crowd” packed into Jamie Allan and Ed McIlroy’s (aka ‘Four Legs’) new “loud and down-to-earth spot in Finsbury Park”. But “don’t overlook the other outstandingly great value dishes on the menu which are just as delicious”, such as “a tasty cockle bouillabaisse or fresh lemon sole”. They haven’t wasted too much cash on their makeover of the knackered old boozer (fka ‘The Auld Triangle’) providing their new home – “a great spot for grabbing a pint”, but “it seems not to have been redecorated since your great grandad called in on the way to the pre-premiership Arsenal game”.
Ever-changing and fantastic small plates served by an ambitious chef duo won praise for Jamie Allan and Ed McIlroy in their two years at The Compton Arms in Islington. With the aid of a Kickstarter campaign, they have converted a clapped-out old boozer (The Auld Triangle) in Finsbury Park to be this new forever home, set to open in Autumn 2021.
For 32 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).

The Plimsoll Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Properly old school pub atmosphere. Loud and buzzy but incredible service and fantastic food. Don’t expect to be comfortable but do expect to leave satiated. Mackerel charred and delicious, very sweet that we were given a fish knife with it. Sweetcorn fritters surprisingly curried but light and crunchy and moreish. "
