I don't really know where to start but with a massive Thank You. We held our Wedding Reception in the Canonbury Tavern on the 7th September with good 55 Guests. We always knew the Canonbury was ideal for us and from the beginning everything went smoothly - considering I was a bit of a panicky Bride. On the day itself everything went like clockwork and both John and myself could relax, enjoy the day and the everyone raved about the food.
A big Thank You to Sandra and Justine for all the hard work and most off all for all the Staff Members having a smile on their face.
When we reviewed the day - we both said we wouldn't change one thing. A perfect event. Beware - we will be back.

The Canonbury and all the team that work there are astounding, the food is delicious, the surroundings are beautiful and the atmosphere perfectly relaxed. This is one of the greatest pubs in Islington.
Great pub - aesthetically beautiful, staff were friendly and accommodating, and the food... Oh the food was divine!

We had a splendid time. Thank you Canonbury Tavern for hosting our wedding reception. The day turned out perfectly due to attentive staff, delicious food, chilled atmosphere and some luck with the weather. Planning the event was fun and stress-free! How many could say that about their wedding? Once again, thank you, thank you, thank you.

We would like to send a huge thank you to everyone for having made the party so smooth and enjoyable.
Everybody enjoyed the food, the place and the service and we could not be more thankful!
We will definitely come to see you soon and recommend you if we know people who are looking for a great party in a beautiful place.

We had our wedding reception here. And we couldn't have chosen a better venue. The staff were so helpful in preparing for our reception. They really went out of there way to ensure everything worked well, even running off (on the day) to buy little extras we had forgotten. The timing of the service was down to a perfection.
The food came out very smoothly like clock work. The staff helped our guests get home and ensured they had the drinks they wanted during the evening. At the end of the evening they never threw us out, but slowly allowed our guests to leave. All our guests had a fabulous time and this was definitely in a large part due to the hard work of the staff at the Canonbury.
THANK YOU for making our wedding a wonderful event.

Beautiful pub, lovely food! We booked the restaurant area for our wedding reception and it was perfect. It has a lovely garden and Sandra (the lady who helped plan our event) is fabulous!!! So helpful :)

We held our wedding reception at the Canonbury Tavern in December 2019 and couldn’t have chosen a better venue. From start to finish the team were very friendly, helpful and obviously knew their stuff. On the day although we provided the decorations, the team made the restaurant look magical, the food was excellent and the service was exceptional. Thank you to Sandra, Martin and the team but particular thanks to Justine who looked after us as if we were her own family. She was very professional, extremely attentive and nothing was too much trouble. I would recommend this venue to anyone. Thank you again for making our special day so relaxed and enjoyable.
Julia & Robert
We held our wedding breakfast here in Dec 2019 and cannot express how happy we were with everything. Sandra and her team were so professional, warm and organised. They completely relaxed us throughout the whole process and were so accommodating to what we wanted. They help you decorate the space and helped us so much. The food was also super - and they sorted mulled wine and everything! We are so thankful we came to the Canonbury, it meant for a lot less stress. We had so many compliments for our choice of venue and I can’t recommend it enough.
