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

Large, busy, bustling, handsome looking, street corner pub, which confusingly looks as if it's on Upper St., an impression helped by the large outside terrace. Huge, plain windows lighten up the place, while the deep red ceiling, fireplace with mirror above, and the older back bar fittings hint at what it would have looked like in a previous age; being built in the 1850s as the York Hotel and rebuilt in the 1870s. Various photos and displays commemorate the once nearby Islington Studios, where Hitchcock began his career. These and the good-looking mirrors will no doubt be hidden when the large sports screen drops down. On the outside corner there's a fine curved display advertising sign. Food from a large menu, see their website for details and times of serving but in general all day to an hour before closing.

Under CAMRA's revised defintions of "real cider", Weston's is no longer listed.
