I liked it in here and thought that the chill out music went well with the décor, although it was a little dark. The barman was extremely friendly and there was a selection of standard and premium lagers available.

There is some limited outside seating next to the main road and a few covered standing places for smokers if it is raining.

I visited on a week night so cannot comment on what it is like here during a busy weekend, but I really liked it and wouldn’t hesitate in returning.

I used to like the Embassy, but my has it changed. during my last two visits there were issues with our drinks. One the first occasion, they had clearly put something cheaper in to the bottle they were serving from. Last time, they served me a vodka and cranberry sans vodka, and a whisky sour that somehow managed to be clear. When I confronted the bartender, she insisted that nothing was amiss. Either they pulled a fast one, or the owners are watering down the stock in the bottles.

£5.50 for a 175 ml glass of wine?
Having a laugh or what....

So someone does the courtesy of calling you back on an enquiry, you refuse to find a quiet corner to take their call, and they're at fault for your rudeness? Franke Lambe got one fact right at least, sheesh.

Not been in a while, my girlfriend won't allow it as we first hooked up there and she was the last in a lucky streak I only ever seemed to enjoy inside this place. Must be the low lighting. Glad it's still going strong as it was one venue where even the bouncers took the time to treat you as an individual not a cash cow.

Went there for the first time in about 3 years, and all I can say is its still one of the best places in Islington by a mile. The bar has had a lick of paint and there’s a downstairs which I can’t remember from before. The music was good and the beer price was average. The next time I’m in north London I see you there.
