Feb 2022 - Several passes over the weeks then a visit last night and all occasions have revealed two cask ales (ELB's Foundation and Quadrant on my visit) then two unused pumps.
Re-opened in early 2019, our drinker on the ground reports this, "I'm not sure how 'regular' these beers will be, but last night the choice of real ales was between: Anspach & Hobday Extra Pale, Tiny Rebel Juicy, Tiny Rebel Cwtch, Wild Beer Co Saaz Trek."
From Propel Dec 2018, "KPS Pub Co to transform newly acquired Islington bar into artisan beer venue: KPS Pub Co has acquired the leasehold of Cured Bar in Liverpool Road, Islington and will turn the venue into The Foxglove, a neighbourhood pub serving drinks solely sourced from small and independent producers.
The ground-floor bar and dining area will provide 64 covers. A KPS Pub Co spokesman said: “We hope to inject some passion and integrity into the pub scene based on our appreciation of good-quality, independently made alcohol. The focus of the pub will be on artisan beer and spirits, with the aim of making craft beer accessible for all.” Chris Bickle, director in the licensed leisure team at Savills, added: “The locality is home to several award-winning dining pubs and the arrival of The Foxglove as a carefully curated wet-led pub will complement the area well.”
As it had been......
NOTE - after a brief closure, reopened as Cured - perhaps a restaurant? Maybe an eatery? Three identifiable ales among other founts, but all on keg: Fuller's London Pride Unfiltered, Fuller's Montana Red and Hammerton's N1.
Prior to that had once again re-opened after a brief closure and re-furbishment with a new name (Hop & Berry) and a commitment to London beers. However, in March 2016 a surveyor was informed of their decision to drop all cask beers and focus solely on kegs. The pub has outside seating on a front terrace and a beer garden at the rear.
The pub was originally known as the Windsor Castle and was rebuilt in 1937 for Charrington's.
