We are delighted to be getting back to business with a Summer Pop up - it’s still Frederick’s, but in a slightly different format. It’s the same building, the same familiar service, with many of the house favourite dishes, and all three of the outdoor areas that we are lucky to offer. Pop in to enjoy a cocktail, a glass of wine or a fuller meal. We won't be using the full restaurant as we all find our feet - but things are changing pretty quickly.

And private dining is already a popular option

Naturally we have been working on some new House Rules to keep customers and the team safe - these are viewable on our website.

Frederick's is a family-run restaurant set up in 1969 situated in Angel Islington. We are known for our friendly service, a broad food menu and a keenly priced wine list.
As well as two large dining areas, Frederick's has two private rooms and a secluded Garden for al fresco dining.

Frederick's also holds a marriage license.

An exceptional restaurant with high level service. A lovely bar to enjoy a drink whilst waiting for your party to arrive with knowledgeable staff. Incredible food choices served impeccably by attentive staff who are happy to help (or not if you like quieter privacy) the surroundings are comfortable and modern with clean fresh rest rooms. The pricing is fair and refreshing. I can't recommend this place enough great for any catch up or event. I've never had a bad experience here.

The food was good enough, but nothing I couldn't cook at home quite easily (Egg en crocotte starter, Seafood risotto) - the risotto had lots of small pieces of crunchy shell in it. Menu pris fixe. Service was good; the jewel in their crown is the beautiful, large, airy dining room

The service here is very friendly, particularly the sommelier. Spoilt for choice - wanted to order lots of things from the menu. The sea bream was very flavourful and the truffles with coffee were exceptional.

This was our third visit to Fredericks and it didn't disappoint. Staff were attentive, friendly, competent and welcoming, food was excellent all round, the salmon and avocado tartare was amazing! Sommelier was fantastic, friendly and attentive, the atmosphere was lovely, enough noise to keep the restaurant humming but not too loud. The whole evening was great and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone who hasn't had the experience yet.

My first visit to Frederick's and definitely not my last. A 6pm booking enabled us to have the pre theatre menu which is fantastic value. First impressions were excellent, the bar area is classy and welcoming. The restaurant area is beautiful, tables generously spaced from one another too. The service was absolutely top notch, the best I can recall receiving in a long time, super polite, ever attentive, friendly and efficient. Water topped up throughout, wine topped up when needed, extra bread offered. Ambience was lovely and classy. Food was fantastic too. It's a huge recommend from me.

This is absolutely my most favourite restaurant in Islington. The menu is always varied and the food is fresh and delicious. The choice of wines is also excellent, and the sommeller very knowledgeable.
I love the garden dining room, the tables are well spaced and beautifully appointed.
The service is invariably attentive and immaculate. I am very impressed that the staff remembered my gluten sensitivity.
The short lunch/early dinner menu is very impressive and the suggested wines always reliable.
Full marks!

Perfect destination for a pre-theatre lunch. The set menu was great value for money and everything we had was delicious, fresh and beautifully cooked. The staff were attentive without being intrusive. Complimentary bread was freshly baked and generously offered.

When we were sat down at the table, the waitress handed us the menu with no hello or welcome and the staff pretty much ignored us for the rest of the evening. The parfait was fridge cold which wasn’t too pleasant. The interior and atmosphere were great and the barman very friendly- such a shame to be let down by the waiting staff.

An oasis of calm and professional cool, Fredericks never disappoints. Our lunch for five friends enjoyed superbly unobtrusive and expert service, incredibly priced (£20 a bottle) fine Gaillac well-chilled white wine from a prize-winning vigneron, and delightful food that arrived at always just the right time. We are SO fortunate to have this superb restaurant still absolutely committed to its first ideals.

I love this place! It was a quiet early monday lunch time and only few tables were occupied in the beginning. My friend decided to pause before the meal to prey (which was a silent pause without any movements). So we seated quietly for a minute without touching food. Then I notice that three waiters froze staring at us... If personnel could be a little bit more discreet and not stare at people that would help!

Came to fredericks for a special celebration and were treated really well by friendly helpful staff. The menu was varied and interesting and food was incredibly tasty. Wine selection was spot on! When my main course came to the table cold it was replaced without any fuss. However it wasn’t properly hot second time around but at that stage I was too hungry to complain again!!! Not sure why this happened but not the end of the world. Overall we had a very enjoyable evening. We will definitely be back in the future.

We were returning to Frederick's for our wedding anniversary, having celebrated a dinner there with friends two years ago. If anything, our experience this year was better than it was then, with a proper vegetarian menu on offer and sufficient space between the tables that we didn't feel the all-too-common sense these days of being crammed in to maximise the cover count. The staff were clearly busy but knew how to optimise their time at individual tables, and the work of the kitchen in setting out a most enjoyable meal was extremely impressive.

I am a regular visitor to Frederick's and have a consistently fabulous experience. Staff are warm, friendly and professional. The food is delicious and good value. The ambience in the restaurant is buzzy but tables are at a distance such that you still feel that you have privacy. It's a family run restaurant and this is reflected in their approach to customers: always with energy and interest and lots of staff who have been there for a while and who haven't lost their enthusiasm to get it right!! I would highly recommend.
