One of the purest names for a pub you will ever find in London, I suppose. You have to admit, there would be a difficulty finding another pub anywhere in London to match it. So welcome to Angel, home of the Angelic...
This gastropub has carved a nice little niche for itself in the in hustle and bustle of the Islington food and drink scene, because if you leave home in order to come here, they will make you feel like you are at home again, just with a fully-functioning bar and well-equipped kitchen.
The food that comes from the kitchen is rather special too, changing monthly, not just seasonly, so you can guaranteed a new experience whenever you decide to dine.
They work equally as hard on their drinks menu, with beers, ales, ciders and a host of other interesting things sourced from all over the world for you to try and enjoy, the stamp of approval being they only put their favourites on the menu. Take this opportunity to get yourself a favourite from their favourites, and then take your time to enjoy it in the very comfortable surroundings.
Now for the thing that makes it different - how many other bars can you think of that operate a juice bar? That's right, the Angelic lives up to its name by catering to those who don't necessarily need to have a drop of alcohol to have a good time. If you add to this the numerous vegetarian options on the menu, you get to see that the name The Angelic seems to be the perfect name for this place after all.
Never has relaxing, eating and drinking with your friends seemed so virtuous and simply the right thing to do before.
