“Don't go: this isn't a pub at all - its a snobby wannabe restaurant. On Saturday night we ate a rather nice Vietnames next door & thought we had timed it perfectly to get last orders in at the Barnsbury: we got to the (empty) bar at 10.50 to be told that we weren't going to be served as we had not bought food there! The pub was about two third full with no one waiting to be served and about 3 bar staff stood doing nothing so why they did not want to serve two more people with ten minutes before time is beyond me. They are obviously either too lazy to worry about their customers (ie wanted to knock off early) or think they are running Le Gavroche. If they can't be bothered with customers, then they don't deserve them & we certainly won't be going there again.”

“This is the worst pub I have ever visited. Warning. Do not go. You know how it is. You get a text from a friend saying they have just been to see a movie and are having a drink in a pub just around the corner, would you like to join them. You get a call from another friend asking what you're up to that evening so you tell them to meet you in the Barnsbury. Before you know it a small gathering has become a medium sized gathering of an enormous fifteen or so people, all buying drinks, some even buying bar snacks or chunky chips. Most pubs would be overjoyed at this level of custom. But not the Barnsbury. "Are you expecting any more guests?" we were asked as if we'd just fouled the carpet. "We don't allow big groups. If you come here again we won't give you a table." Now there were two empty tables next to our group, there was no queue at the door, people weren't banging on the window demanding service, we weren't drinking heavily, shouting, carousing, raping or pillaging in fact some of our group were so crazy they were ordering cups of tea or bottles of overpriced coke because "they were driving!" Outrageous behaviour I hear you all cry. So what was our crime? "Not ordering food". Apparently, being a "gastropub" they make most of their money from food. Well at £7.50 for two unremarkable drinks I find that a bit hard to swallow. And if complaints about their absurd helpings are anything to go by the food is pretty hard to swallow as well. Now a quiet word in our ear or a polit”

“This is an excellent pub serving fantastic food and very good value. Its busy these days so you need to book a table if you want to eat, which I would strongly recommond. The staff are great - nothing is to much trouble. This is a cut above the rest in Islington - GO.”
