Nice pub at the top of Chapel Market in Islington. Friendly staff and a good wine list, including some lovely English wines. (The Sandhurst rose is very drinkable, if a little pricey). I liked the chorizo croquettes with punchy smoked garlic dip but my aubergine dip suffered from being fridge cold. My companion's pork chop was excellent, really well cooked and served with leek mash and a tasty apple and bacon chutney. They always have interesting specials on. Some of the furniture is more shabby than chic - a few of the chairs are too low for the tables - but overall, it's a nice place to stop after shopping on Chapel Market.
