If you love burgers then keep on reading because our team has decided to gather all of their favourite burger places in Islington and share them with you today – so you know exactly where to go!

Our esteemed team hath identified and deemed worthy of recommendation the four preeminent purveyors of burgers in Islington.


The Old Queens Head Pub

First on our list is The Old Queens Head Pub – one of the most beautifully decorated pubs in Islington in our opinion! There are vintage sofas and upholstered chairs, carved stone fireplace, statues, wooden floors, beautiful ceiling – as you can see in the picture, it really is gorgeous. The atmosphere is welcoming, cosy, and you will definitely feel like royalty when eating there!

If we have to be honest, we go there a few times a month because of how gorgeous the venue is. Of course, we also really enjoy the food – especially the burgers!

We highly recommend you order the Royal with Cheese Burger (beef patty, bacon, American cheese, tomato, lettuce, onion, ketchup, mustard, pickles), the El Chapo burger (beef patty, smoked bacon, jalapenos, blue cheese, aioli), and the Kevin Bacon (beef patty, applewood smoked bacon, American cheese, ketchup, mustard, pickles)!

Next on our list is another beautiful place offering delicious food – MEATliquor. They are extremely successful and have locations all over London, however, today we will focus on the one located in Islington! It’s not really a pub but an American-styled diner. The venue used to be an old Citroen Garage before they renovated it and turned it into MEATliquor.

They have plenty of options when it comes to their burgers – from Chicken and Beef burgers to Vegetarian and Vegan options. We really enjoy the Green Chilli Cheese Burger (double beef patty, American cheese, Spicy Green Chilli Butter, Red onions, pickles, lettuce, mustard, ketchup), the Buffalo Chicken Burger (with buffalo sauce, lettuce, red onions, blue cheese sauce), and the Dirty Chicken Cheese Burger (with mayo, lettuce, American cheese, and red onions)!

Aside from delicious burgers, they also offer fries, wings, hot dogs, and starters like Mac ‘n’ Cheese!

And for dessert, definitely get the Filth Pie – Oreos, marshmallows, and coconut pie served with milk ice cream!
