Duke of Cambridge

30 St Peters St, Islington, London N1 8JT 020 7359 3066

We say

Opened in 1998 as Britain’s only all-organic pub, the Duke of Cambridge is still going strong fourteen years later. Everything here is organic; not just the food, or even the beer, but the wine, tea, coffee, you name it. Despite being tucked down an Islington backstreet, it’s pretty much always crowded – book for dinner to be sure of a seat. Food and prices alike place it firmly at the upper end of the gastro-pub spectrum. In fact at meal times you’re unlikely to see anyone here who’s simply popped in for a pint. Apart from the good old-fashioned bar at one end, equipped with draught pumps serving ales from the likes of Freedom and Pitfield breweries, the light and very spacious main dining room looks as much restaurant as pub. An emphasis on locally sourced ingredients – which effectively means the Home Counties – gives the menu a very English flavour, especially in winter when hearty dishes such as roast pork with apple sauce, or rabbit stew, predominate.
