The Duchess of Kent

I really agree with the last reviewer. I live very near this pub and have visited often for a drink but we tried the food the other day and were shocked by the bad food and service. The batter around the fish and chips was soft and undercooked - more batter than actual fish, the spinach side (for £3) was not large enough for a small toddler, we had to ask for water 3 times before actually receiving any and teh dining room was quite empty and souless. I pointed out to the waitress that the batter was inedible and she agreed with us but it still appeared on our, fairly pricey for what they serve, bill! What a shame - it is so easy to get gastro pubs right but maybe this palce is aiming to high. Please avoid this place and walk just a few mins to one of the many gastro pubs in Islington that get it very right.
