About the Pub

CLOSED during lockdown but not COVID realted, we are informed, "the freeholder of the Angel pub wasn't going to give them a long lease, as he wanted to turn it into flats! Work needed to be done to the place and it wasn't worth it, as they could only have it for a few years. Checked Islington Council planning portal and there are no planning applications registered.

The Craft Beer Co. pub in Islington is more pubby than their Farringdon bar. Situated on an angle back street running parallel with Chapel Market, previously The Lord Wolseley and not at all known for cask beer. The pub has been split up into different areas including a comfy lounge and a more basic bar area. The bar itself is the first thing you bump into as you come through the door. You should easily find something you like among the 10 handpumps serving the real ales and the twenty plus taps serving the craft keg selection. Small but cosy garden to one side of pub.

Historic Interest

Local Listing:- Timber frontage; four panelled stallrisers. Five pilasters, fascia (attached name) and cornice. Two granite pilasters, render brackets, two lanterns, four clear glass windows.
