A London pub with a difference, Plaquemine Lock boasts a Michelin Bib Gourmand, and offers a true taste of the American South. Cajun and creole-style dishes from Louisiana are served in a colourful setting, with hand-drawn murals over the bar that celebrate bayou life.

Authentic Cajun flavours on the Plaquemine Lock feature house specialities like oysters and boiled crayfish, served with traditional sides like grits and tomato gravy. There are aromatic gumbos, buckets of fried chicken with American biscuits, and the crowd-pleasing po'boy sandwiches filled with blackened chicken, slow-roast beef, and soft shell crab.

Pecan pie with cane sugar ice cream is a great way to end a meal at Plaquemine Lock in North London, while the bar serves up British and American beers, as well as Louisiana-themed cocktails made with imported bourbons and rums.

A unique London restaurant that treats diners to a true taste of Louisiana, Plaquemine Lock is a 7-minute walk from Angel Tube Station.

    Good honest, tasty food and great value for money. The Gumbo seemed to be a favourite for all the tables - give it a try.
    Nice mix of diners from families to friends. Worth a visit and then onto Islington High Street for a spot of browsing after!

    Great atmosphere, starters and mains were yummy. The Pecan pie was a bit disappointing however would still recommend to a friend and return.

    food was DELICIOUS and the service fab. I am biased (I'm the guvna) but I was particularly proud to be eating and drinking here tonight

    Amazing food and flavours - something different to the generic local pub or eatery. Loved it and definitely coming back!

  • (((** 9 July 2018 by Sue from Glasgow

    Overall, I think it is a great place for younger people. The style is informal, attentative and noisy. I've never eaten Creole cooking before and enjoyed it a lot but it is a bit samey. The ice-cream is superb and I love your sister restaurant Lupo de Bocca which is probably more our style.
