The CastleThe roof garden is the summertime attraction at The Castle but it proves popular with the Islington crowd in the less clement months too. Away from the busy Upper Street, Islington's main thoroughfare, it has an off-the-beaten-track appeal. Don't think that this means you're the first to discover it though, Friday and Saturday nights it can get pretty busy with an up-for-it crowd - great if you're on for a big night out - and weekends attract the Monopoly pub-crawlers. Lunchtimes and Sunday afternoons are a lot more sedate with the laid back tunes providing a suitable soundtrack for the affordable bar food. Menu choices include aubergine stuffed with marinated seasonal veg and minted cous cous as well as old-fashioned pub grub like fish and chips or steak and Guinness pie.
