The Canonbury Tavern

Squaremeal Review of The Canonbury Tavern ?

It’s all about the beer garden: overlooked by the Georgian houses of leafy Barnsbury, this huge space is a mix of decking and patios scattered with smart garden chairs. Come the summer months, it buzzes with families and general sun-seeking drinkers. Inside, The Canonbury is nearly as spacious (split into dining room and bar areas), but with somewhat bland styling. The menu plays it safe, offering a crowd-pleasing assortment at middle-of-the-road prices. It’s divided into sections: meat (steak and ale pudding with roasted root vegetables), fish (smoked haddock and salmon fish pie) and vegetarian (mushroom risotto, truffle oil and Parmesan crisp), alongside burgers and rotisserie chickens with a choice of marinades. Amiable staff pour the wine (from a large choice listed by grape variety) as well as a decent selection of draught beers and lagers.

Really nice gastropub. Went for a friend's birthday and was lovely – it is massive but laid out so the room is broken up so it feels strangely intimate. I would highly recommend this for a birthday/celebration do. I went on Sunday and it was very kiddy friendly – I don't have one but if I did I would bring that with me too!
