This used to be one of the best pubs in London, but it’s changed. Burnt and over cooked Sunday roasts that arrived cold, and really slow rude service - it was always a 30 minute minimum wait for someone to come by our table again, so we’d try to politely flag someone and they rolled their eyes at us. Sure the burnt, cold food was corrected… but an hour later with plenty of hostility. Want to order a pint? Everything will be a 30 minute wait. We tried to order cappuccinos after eating and they never came. We’ve all worked in service before and tried to be understanding, but it’s hard when servers openly roll their eyes at reasonable requests. We let them know the issues, and that we’ve loved this spot in the past, and said that eye rolling and rudeness is just unnecessary - and got a snide response. If they told us they were sorry and understaffed we would have been understanding. Like other reviewers have said - slow rude service, and cold poorly cooked food.GOOGLE REVIEW

What a brilliant place to have dinner and relax with friends. The menu is diverse and the atmosphere is just awesome. Everything about the location is superb. Had a beef burger with loaded fries and it was delicious. The staff is quite friendly and professional. The indian (I guess) waitress who served us tonight was super nice and friendly and took care of every thing on our table from drinks to food. Totally recommend!GOOGLE REVIEW

Amazing atmosphere, large yet cozy. With a fire. Fun and Challenging pub quiz on a Sunday. The food portion sizes are generous but as another review stated it is over cooked and dry. Had the veggie childs portion, enough for an adult. But needed some chutney or veggie gravy… very dry!GOOGLE REVIEW

Rump steak would not usually be my first choice. Time to rethink, this rump was perfectly rare, tender and flavourful. I want to know the butcher. Chips were perfect and the simple things are hardest to get right. The watercress salad, dressed with olive oil, lemon juice and salt was perfect. I shall definitely order this again.GOOGLE REVIEW

A great big pub! If you are a George Orwell fan like me, apparently he had lived nearby in Canonbury Square would frequent the pub back in the 1940's. There are some paintings of George Orwell inside the pub. I have been going to The Canonbury Tavern on-and-off for a number of years and always enjoy my visits. The prices are typical for a London pub and the place has a good atmosphere.GOOGLE REVIEW
