Bar staff always happy to have a chat and some banner with you if you are sat at the bar waiting for friends. Would highly recommend the roasts, this is the only thing I've had off the menu over the last 3 years, they never disappoint.
Reasonably good wine list, good bar snacks and a nice bottle of Prosecco that won't break the bank.
Worth a trip to Islington...I live an hour away but it's worth travelling for.
Pudding was fine, tea fine. Difficult to get attention of staff though. Won't be going there again I am afraid.
The best sunday roast dinner in the area! Worth a visit just for that reason alone but do book ahead-it is popular. There is also a summer terrace for drinking beer and some good wines on offer. Downside the staff-not too friendly in my opinion.

Met some folk here for a Sunday lunch - not my manor, but I would not turn down going here again. Very buzzy - as other reviewers note, you'll need to book for Sunday lunch.
A workmanlike menu, with a choice of perhaps a dozen mains ( including three roasts, it being Sunday). Roast leg of lamb, and specials of sole and wild boar sausages were all sampled and deemed to past muster - the lamb was tender and a very delicate pink, which is quite a feat in the circumstances. We didn't bother with starters, which was maybe a shame as there were some tasty sounding choices, including moules, and various plates of cured meats etc.
The dessert I was pressed into sharing was a pretty stodgy cheescake, billed as "chocolate with toffee sauce" - again, more than serviceable, but slightly disappointing that the toffee sauce was not in evidence. A pretty decent wine list - a few glasses of Malbec were an aid to digestion/the gateway to a Sunday afternoon snooze. Fairly attentive service - we were gently reminded thaty the table was booked for another sitting after us, but only after we'd been there nearly two hours, and with a good fifteen minutes notice.
I've not gone the whole five stars simply because I didn't really try enough of a representative sample of the menu, and I was mildly irritated by the constant buffeting from the buffoon at the table behind ( some tables are quite closely spaced).
Rediscovered this place after a few years and it's even better than I remembered. Nice atmosphere, friendly bar staff, cool interior & very tasty food. Winner on all counts.

I already reviewed a duplicate of the Crown but I'll write it again.
Awesome pub. Friendly, stunning Victorian interiors, great food, decent enough real ale range. Get the wasabi peanuts. Awesome.
This used to be my local and I miss it having moved out of the area a couple of years ago.
I previously considered this the best sunday roast in the angel area along with The Albion.
However having been back a couple of times in recent months I've been less impressed with the food. On both occassions the meat and vegetables have been very good but the roast potatoes a disappointment. The service has also been very slow, to the point that we waited half an hour to be offered dessert menus and when they did show up, half of them had gone cold.
I'm not ready to write it off yet but will be revisiting other pubs in the area to see if my money would be better spent elsewhere.
The Crown is still an excellent venue off the beaten track but needs to up its game if it wants that 5th star back.
Lovely Fullers pub in the back streets of Islington. I was going to say 'little' but it is actually deceptively large, going back a long way inside. The decor is fantastic, old traditional dividers and bar paraphernalia that I am simply not expert enough to do justice to in my description. Add the small cosy little beer garden out front and Fullers beers and the result is a charming pub in (or outside of) which to kill some time with friends.
Wonderful place! I lived within crawling distance of this place for a few years and it’s certainly one of my top 3 London pubs. Fantastic atmosphere day or night, great setting on a lovely cobbled street. Drinks are averagely priced with some nice beers (Kirin etc.) but the food is the real highlight: restaurant quality with gastro-pub prices. Many items on the menu change every week and there’re are always many items you could eat. Staff are always extremely friendly and talkative.
One of the nicer pubs in the area. Usually able to get a table without too much planning. Good (Fullers) beer and a tidy wine list. Food is better than average pub, but can take a little while sometimes.
Friendly staff are a highlight.
The Crown nestles nicely into the backstreets of Barnsbury, just a short walk from either Angel and Kings Cross. It also nestles beautifully in the pub market in the area.
The Albion down the road has a far higher opinion of itself than it has deserved or earned. And most of the other local pubs are in the usual gastro pub vein.
The Crown, however, really works for your respect: great, delicious almost restaurant food, good beers and good service. The decor is nicely old fashioned with its wood panelling. And a nice area outside for the summer / smokers.
Beware, it is very popular so book ahead on Sunday especially.
