See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Reverted to its original name in 2016. Two-thirds devoted to restaurant space. Comfortable modern furniture. Very large garden area to side and rear. In 2014 became an accredited member of the CAMRA LocAle scheme, beers may be sourced from various London breweries such as Sambrook's, Hammerton and Hackney. Sunday quiz. In 2015 taken back by Young's into direct ownership/operation. It has has been a public house since the early 1700's and boasts a rich and varied history.

In 1846 The Canonbury Tavern was demolished and rebuilt on the same land. In the early 20th century the top floor was removed following a fire and never replaced. This is why the staircase leads to nowhere. George Orwell, who lived in Canonbury Square, wrote part of 1984 whilst sitting under the tree in the garden in the 1940's.
