About MEATliquor N1
MEATliquor started as a burger van (the MEATwagon) in a Peckham industrial estate carpark back in 2010. After its theft came #meateasy, a 3 month pop-up restaurant above an abandoned pub in New Cross, which opened in January 2011. The first permanent MEATliquor site (MEATliquor W1) opened 11/11/11 and the rest was history….
MEAT and liquor (as the name suggests) are our thing, but we’re not just burgers and booze… Expect MEAT (beef, chicken, veggie, vegan), dogs, wings and rings and fries for carnivores, omnivores & herbivores. The bar offers plenty of classic cocktails with a healthy measure of our signature cocktails, craft beers, sodas and shakes thrown in too.
We’re located on Upper Street smack bang in the middle of Angel and Highbury & Islington stations in an old Citroen garage. We’ve got the only MEATliquor garden with plenty of outdoor space, a full bar with Meantime Tank Fresh lager as well as a restaurant, table football and photo booth. Our £10 lunch deal is available weekdays until 5pm. Celebrating something big? Parties are our business. Hit us up for group bookings, whatever the size. We’re also very dog friendly.
Close to the O2 Academy Islington, The Garage, Islington Assembly Hall, Angel Shopping centre and Arsenal Emirates Stadium.
Excellent food, the braai wings were awesome. Beer selection could be better.
Had a lovely time, will be going back with my colleagues soon:)
The staff are really friendly and made us feel really welcome. The food is also amazing!
I love the brand and I think its a brilliant concept Worst point would be that there wasn't salt and pepper shakers on the tables outside, when the food came I quickly went and grabbed one. Great dining experience as always. I wouldn't say the decor is as nice as the other ones I have been too in all fairness but can hardly complain about that. 4 stars out of 5 for value for money as I think paying for sauce albeit it's a pound is always a bit annoying.
Great server, super helpful and nice.
Since a couple of months we enjoy to bring friends to the N1 MEATliquor - we simply enjoy it that much! for me especially if I don't want meat the alternatives are sooooo nice it's hard to make up my mind. Burgers or cajun fries, slaw or greek salad - just love it! They provide colours and something to draw on for the kids and the staff's so friendly! In Islington one of my fave places to go!
Thank you guys for such a great time and for moving the furniture around to have a long table as I wanted it. Love to all
We visited your N1 location as the KX Meat Liquor is closed on Sundays (why??). Only real criticism is that your milkshakes are way too small! The coke float is much better value. Also, no salt & pepper with the condiments, and none brought when requested. Burgers and onion rings as good as expected.
Tried the vegan/vegetarian menu and loved it!!! Yum!!
Hi Kiran. We're glad you enjoyed our Veggie/Vegan options. Enough to recommend it to your friends ?
a great night again
Thanks for visiting us, see you soon :)
Very underwhelming. Onion rings extremely oily (dripping with oil) and bacon in the burger overly salty. Overall food was way below standard considering the hyped reputation. Waitress was so lovely, attentive and polite which pretty much saved the visit but overall quite disappointed as I had wanted to visit Meat Liquor for a really long time. Feedback would be mainly around the food preparation - seems very slapdash and made without much care (FYI restaurant was not busy) and also cocktails - not particularly strong, watery with too much ice.
Hello Yasmin. We're very sorry to hear that, despite the fact that we thrive to prepare and serve the best food, your experience with us was not up to scratch. Has the issue been raised to one of our member of staff ? Usually, we replace the faulty dish no questions asked.
Burgers were pretty good and good range of sides. Fries could have been crisper. The cocktail and craft ale I had were both good. Would have liked to have been able to choose bench seating rather than a wooden bench. The only real issue I have against the service. Re atmosphere - I liked the decoration: TV screens in restaurant and the UV in restrooms. But one reason I chose MEATLiguor was because I went to the one near Oxford St and liked the edgy feel. This one was much more family-oriented, with younger children, so for me a disappointment so I realise this is not necessarily a criticism.
Fabulous as always, friendly and attentive service.
Glad you enjoyed your time with us, see you soon then :)
Came for dinner with friends for some food before celebrating my birthday party - was perfect, food was great & service was impeccable! Will return !
Thanks for your feedback. We'll see you soon :)
Food was great as always and we had amazing service.
We're glad you had a blast with us. See you very soon.
As good as ever. Music wasn't loud enough, maybe down to door being open.
Had a great time with you guys!! 1st time visiting this particular Meat site. Food was amazing as always. Service was attentive & efficient especially considering there was 12 of us. A brilliant start to my stag do. Hope to see you soon.
The food was good but was very disappointed that they allowed a dog to be inside the restaurant right behind us. No one asked if we minded and my friend is scared of dogs but did not want to make a fuss. The dog barked and shook its self which was very off outting. I was confused why their party could not have sat outside and been considerate of other diners
Epic place with the craziest deco and amazing food. Highly recommended!
Super impressed by the service, it was my birthday and the servers who looked after me were friendly and made me feel welcome
So glad you decided to celebrate your birthday with us. It was a pleasure having you here and we hope you'll be back soon...
Quirky industrial style venue hidden down an alleyway off of Upper Street. Decent burgers although had better but great sides...any of the fries, macncheese and Monkey Fingers...all very tasty American style food. Also try one of the alcoholic shakes...i'll be trying to replicate at home this summer for sure.
I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your food. To try a boozy shake at home I'd recommend sticking some vanilla ice cream in a blender with a shot of your choice (bourbon whiskey and dark rum work very well...). Can always mix it up with different ice creams/booze/toppings. Let us know if you come up with any fun combinations!
Very slow service tonight, had to get up and ask servers to take our order and also got up to get napkins and knives and forks. Didn't get our first drinks until 30 mins in.
I'm sorry to hear that you didn't have the greatest experience. I'm afraid the night you visited was very busy for us and it's disappointing to hear that service suffered as a result as this obviously shouldn't be the case. I hope this hasn't put you off us too much and that you'll return to see us on better form in the future. Thank you for your feedback.
We waited too long for our food and to be served, we even saw other tables who got there before us who also didn’t receive their food in good time. Not sure why it took so long to make burgers and hot dogs - could even see on the board that there were many tables served late.
Hi, I'm so sorry it took a while to get your food. We do cook everything from fresh, to order, so it can take a little bit longer than your average burger joint. Thank you.
