Mouthwatering Dining Guide For Angel & Islington

HotTug is lucky enough to be in the canals of the beautiful Angel & Islington and all the amazing restaurants, pubs and cafes in the surrounding area for a post-trip meal. Here are a few of the many great establishments that are tucked in and around the streets surrounding the Islington Boat Club.

The Narrowboat


On your trip you would of passed this iconic pub on the canal with a seating area that overlooks the water. Not only does this pub have a great view but a great atmosphere with friendly staff and good food too! The truffle fries are a particular favourite of the HotTug staff. Make sure you book your table in advance so you secure one of the tables at the front for prime views and waving at fellow HotTuggers.

119 St Peter’s Street, London, N1 8PZ

Canal No.5

This spot is directly in front of the first turn right on the route. A great cafe for your breakfast and lunch or just a coffee and a pastry to continue the good times after your trip. This cafe is also situated in one of the most spacious spots along the canal walk way so if you can't grab a table then a spot down on the canal edge is just as great.

79 Noel Road | On The Tow Path, London N1 8HE



Looking for some fine cuisine within 5 minutes of the boat club? Well Sardine is the spot for that! It was recently voted 85th in that National Restaurant Awards and is host to many, many raving reviews. Enjoy the cooking of Southern France in this upmarket but neighbourly restaurant that is tucked away in the back streets of Angel & Islington.

15 Micawber Street, London, N1 7TB

Riverford at Duke of Cambridge


This is Britains first and only organic pub that has teamed up with Riverford, the family-run organic farm based in Devon. Using the most fresh produce, the light and airy pub is definitely on another level to the traditional boozers. With a menu that changes with the seasons, diners are in for a treat.
