A real local pub just around the corner from Highbury & Islington station, close enough not to have to worry if you linger a little longer around the table than you meant to before heading up to the Emirates stadium...

A stone's throw from Highbury Corner, The Duchess is one of Islington's best kept secret. Step away from the madding North London crowds and sip on a pint of Doombar, Broadside, Redemption. This homely pub is a treat come rain or shine, with its cosy dining room, quality fresh gastropub food, it's ideal for laying down words in a game of scrabble, or settling down for a Sunday Lunch whilst mulling over a defensive backgammon move, or the afternoon sport on Sky. In addition to this, the expansive list of quality real ales and modern wines make this pub in N7, Alf's favourite stop-off before a game at the Emirates! The food is "exceptional" as described by one food critic from the Standard who thought her starter was a heavenly branch of vine tomatoes, so beautifully roasted to a sticky toffee-sweetness, that even the stalks were a treat to crunch.
