Summary of Beer Scores


The pub is found in Barnsbury, Central London, N1 1LX.

The Barnsbury is a rejuvenated, mid-terrace pub lying just a short walk from the Angel and Upper Street. A large seating area around a horseshoe-shaped bar, with a separate dining area to the rear. Pavement tables. Further relaunched as The Hop & Berry in Summer 2014 with 5 handpumps and a selection of keg beers from UK national and London area micro-breweries.

We have visited this pub twice, seen 6 different beers and tried 2 of them.
