The Drapers Arms
In both Jackie and Fiona Stapley's top London picks, the Drapers Arms is a stylish Georgian townhouse on a quiet Islington street. The hearty-but-elegant dishes include cullen skink, haggis fritters and quail with red cabbage and prunes. Real ale and cider drinkers are well provided for.
