A Warm Welcome

A beautiful pub dating back to the 1700’s offering delicious dishes, classic cocktails, a glorious partially covered beer garden and a tremendous team. We can’t wait for you to join us inside from 17th of May!


Located a short walk from Islington Town Hall and with a variety of spaces and bespoke menus, we’re the perfect venue for a large wedding reception or intimate dinner. Our experienced team is on hand to help you create the day of your dreams.

The Canonbury Tavern, Highbury & Islington

Ideally located on Canonbury Place, just a short walk from Highbury and Islington, Canonbury and Essex Road stations, we’re the perfect place to stop by with your nearest and dearest to drink, dine and have a fantastic time. We proudly serve deliciously fresh, seasonal and British food, from the traditional pub classics to hand-crafted, contemporary plates. Our bar is fully stocked with real ales, chilled beer, fine wines from around the world, a wide selection of spirits and classic cocktails.

Our partially covered garden allows you to temporarily escape the bustling London streets, entering an urban oasis, more fitting with country living. Please note our garden closes at 9pm. Whether you’re looking for a fantastic Sunday roast with the family, a romantic date night or catching up with friends, we have it all. Make sure to bring your furry friend with you, we’re very dog friendly!

Martyn and the team look forward to seeing you soon.
