About us

A truly unique pub in the heart of Islington

As the only pub in the British Isles to bear the name, The Island Queen really is one of a kind. Tucked away on Islington's quiet backstreets, "the Queen" is a quaint oasis of comfy sofas, high ceilings and intriguing original features reminiscent of a classic London gin palace. Our deceptively bijou bar serves a gargantuan range of speciality drinks, while our colonial-inspired interior - embellished by etched glass and hand-painted mirrors - makes for a uniquely cosy backdrop in which to savour them.

  • Nine of the world's best beers on tap
  • Cask Marque accredited real ales
  • Freshly cooked, seasonal pub-food
  • Weekly quiz night & wine club
