SquareMeal Review of
Duke of Cambridge
Geetie Singh, owner of this expansive, airy pub in the backstreets of Islington, has an MBE for services to the organic pub trade. She has also written a cookbook, so her well-heeled devotees can
attempt to replicate the culinary experience at home. You can see why they’d want to: a meal might start with beef carpaccio with radish, rocket & pickled red onion, & continue with whole
lemon sole with fresh peas, broad beans, bacon & cider sauce. The Duke is certified by the Soil Association, approved by the Marine Conservation Society, runs on wind & solar electricity,
& sources most of its produce from the Home Counties. To drink, try a pint of London-brewed Freedom or Pitfield ale, or a glass of chilled English wine, & treat yourself to cherry tart with
vanilla & amaretto ice cream.
