This beautiful pub is a bit of a trek from public transport, which also makes it a welcome break from the crowds on and around Upper Street. The area feels like you’ve stepped through a magic curtain into a place where people no longer exist. Seriously, we once walked around the place for over 20 minutes and didn’t encounter another human. Inside The Drapers Arms, you’ll find a bar downstairs with three ales on tap and great bar snacks. Upstairs is the dining room, where you’ll find sharing roasts, killer pies, and a well-priced wine list. Head for the garden in good weather. Book at weekends.
