Home to Islington’s bustling neighbourhood, The Alwyne Castle serves comforting British classics from a trusty menu. Teeming with offbeat charm, the restaurant plays host to a sweeping beer garden and boasts a theatrical open kitchen where food is prepared in view of diners.

Fresh, flaky cod battered in cider and tarragon is served with skin-on chunky chips and crushed peas, while a juicy pulled pork and chorizo burger topped with caramelised red onions leads the dishes on The Alwyne Castle menu. A hearty Sunday lunch features 21-day aged, roast West Country beef, along with free-range Norfolk pork matched with crisp but succulent crackling.

A string of vintage, rose-coloured fringe lamps suspend from the stretching bar, while charmingly mismatched furnishings litter the cosy dining room. Feature wallpaper lines the walls, and a billowing canopy ceiling complements the stained glass windows in the bright and airy conservatory.

A 5-minute walk from Highbury & Islington Tube Station, The Alwyne Castle in London is just a 3-minute drive to the Almeida Theatre.

    A family of 12 went for a booked lunch, to celebratev2 birthdays. The food was lovely and so were the staff. Drinks were very expensive though.
