Islington’s Upper Street has some top London bars and eateries. However, just off one of the side streets lies a TSL particular favourite, Public House. A quirky, atmospheric all rounder, great for drinks with friends and dates and, when in the mood for dinner or Sunday roast (£14ish), again, it’s a definite shout. Started by Simon Sheena (see him here) in 2008, this restaurant-bar combo invites you into a world you wish could be your own apartment. French baroque style with retro chic is what springs to mind in terms of interior, and when it comes to drinks on offer and food to be served, expect an eclectic mix on the menu.

Cocktails at £7.50-£10 come served with niche liquors, meaning that the best way to get the most out of such selection is to give your trust to the bar staff. In our case, knowing our dry palette and our insatiable desire for whisky, the recommended Boomerang Sour (£8) went down nicely with its spicy kick. In terms of food, we were very impressed with the seasonal menu as well as the value – two courses for £15 or £19.50 with a glass of Prosecco. In our case we experimented with Dorset snails (£8) and shredded duck rillette (£6) for starters, and roast & confit partridge (£16) and fillet of Tamworth pork (£14) for mains. No doubt this left us in good spirits, as did the well recommended wine (white Betola Blanca and red Aldeya Garnacha), coming in at an affordable £11ish for a carafe. All in all, a definite spot to return to which, depending on the time of arrival – weekends have an obvious going out vibe, while mid-week equates to intimate catch-up time – there’s something for everyone.
