Gastro Pub
The Smokehouse is a renowned and critically acclaimed restaurant based in Islington serving smoked meat and BBQ.
We believe in our product and buy meat direct from the farm and butcher it on site, we receive our fish from small day boats from the south coast of England and only use the best produce available.
We serve a wide selection of great British and European beers/Ales as well as specialised wines bought only from family-run vineyards.

The atmosphere was lovely although I had to use the torch on my phone to read the menu! Food was beautifully cooked but you really do need to order sides as the portions are small. The service was very good. I visited on a busy night but we were never left waiting too long to order the next course or to ask for the bill.

Good food, perhaps a little expensive. Service, however, was very slow, certainly not enough staff for a busy service. Also, we arrived for a 1945 sitting, yet much of the steak on the board had already gone. We’ve eaten here regularly and normally have a good experience, so quite disappointed.

Smokehouse is ALWAYS excellent. Great food, super winelist, lovely team. It's a local for me, and a favourite to bring visiting guests to.

Had heard good things but hasn’t got things quite right. Really long wait times for food and drinks to arrive. Serving staff we’re quite rude, inattentive and don’t seem to know the menu well. Food itself was well presented but taste was average at best and you expect a bit better if you’re paying £17+ for a burger.

Best Burger I have had in London. Maybe ever. And I like Burgers.

We were given two different menus and I’d gotten my hopes up that I could finally order the burger, yet was told we’d been given one incorrect menu. Not sure why the burger isn’t offered most evenings or weekends. It’s pretty frustrating.
