The Duke of Cambridge

The Duke of Cambridge is one of the most handsome pubs in Islington. Unfortunately on a recent visit, it had little else to offer. The menu was short, uninspiring and expensive. Our food was entirely disappointing; a braised chicken leg with cannellini bean stew was bland and at £14, overpriced; organic or otherwise. A similar experience with the Sausages & mash - £13.50 for three. The portobello mushroom & cous cous main course with Gorgonzola cheese (£12.00) arrived with Camembert instead and the Jerusalem artichokes accompanying the dish were virtually raw. An aloof waitress adopted the 'they are meant to be slightly al-dente' approach but finally conceeded after returning the dish to the kitchen and testing them for herself.

We declined dessert. The pub was pretty busy on a Saturday evening. If the quality of food we experienced is the norm at these prices then I'd say they are very lucky business indeed.
