I am not entirely sure why, but I do love The Draper’s Arms. This local pub in a leafy, residential part of Islington, is welcoming, noisy and vibrant. And the food is always great too. We dined early, as I had a train to catch. We shared the salt beef with picked onions on a toasted loaf. I then had duck with peas and pancetta, the Princess had lamb pie and we shared some wilted, buttered greens.
There was no room for dessert. But next time. Their menu changes often, which makes return visits compulsory.
