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….

MEATliquor (as the name suggests) is our thing, but we’re not just burgers and booze… Expect beef, halal chicken, veggie, plant-based, dogs, wings, rings and fries. Not forgetting the little people, we've got a kids menu with beef, chicken & plant-based options.

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 MEATliquor garden with plenty of outdoor space, a full bar with craft beer as well as plenty of room for big parties with large communal tables and booth seating for parties up to 6 and a separate mezzanine dining area.

Our £12 lunch deal is available weekdays until 5pm.
We’re also very dog friendly.
Close to the O2 Academy Islington, The Garage, Islington Assembly Hall, Angel Shopping centre and Arsenal Emirates Stadium.

Fantastic as always, one of the best for eating out and so looked after by the staff. Great recommendations too. Such a nice atmosphere around Upper Street and in the courtyard we ended up staying til they closed. Standout burgers, snacks and sides and great cocktails... which we had maybe one or 5 too many of. Guaranteed excellent time!

Excellent outdoor area, buzzing atmosphere despite the current restrictions we had a great evening, great food and drinks and the shots after dinner set up the evening perfectly!

Food delicious as ever. Service a little slow outside but good overall. Would only be improved with some heating outside :-)

I had said on the booking and when I arrived that we were celebrating our son's 16th birthday, this is an opportunity for the service staff to really add to the celebration feeling but service was really just functional and often difficult to get and we even gave up on dessert as we just couldn't get any service and therefore missed the opportunity to sing our son happy birthday with a cake. Food was good but overall not a good fun eating out experience.

We both ordered monkey fingers expecting at leadt chicken dipper amounts of chicken and they were honestly disgusting. There was the thinnest sliver of chicken in a massive amount of batter. Having ordered onion rings with these not realising how batter heavy they'd be we were left just feeling ill. We didn't complain as I had a discount through code app and chalked it down to a bad choice and just wouldn't come back again. Service was good, can't really comment on Atmosphere it was 12 and we were the only ones in for a while.

Service was excellent. I thought the portion size for the Chilli Cheese Fries was smaller than usual, but no huge deal. Really nice to be able to dine with you and your staff were excellent. It felt safe too.

Food and house grog was amazing as usual service was a little unattentive to begin with but our server Jack saved the day not the first time I’ve sang his praise he’s a diamond when it comes to service and a true asset to the establishment there was a new lady being trained I didn’t catch her name but she was also very attentive checked we were ok and took our drinks order

Great food and excellent atmosphere! I’ve been to MEATliquor many times and it’s always amazing. They know how to consistently deliver on all counts. Very good service. Really good burgers and delicious fries. Great portion sizes too!

COVID implementations are second to none. It should be compulsory to not let people in until they prove they have completed track and trace. Exceptional. Table arrangements very clever too. Rum grog cocktail was deelish (and lethal!) and your burgers are my fave in London. Never stop! See you again soon

Buffalo wings the sauce was perfect but found the meat a little dry and lacking on the bone. Apart from this, fantastic dining environment would definitely visit again - felt Covid save.

We had a 50% offer so the meal was really good value . The whole visit was let down by the service though. We waited 30 mins for our drink order to be taken and I had to chase someone twice before that happened. The food was served an hour after we arrived. Food was delicious.

Came on a 50% off deal and the food was good except for the onions on the hippie fries. I feel and it is only my taste that they had too much pepper in them this visit. My nose wouldn’t stop running and my fries became a none starter as I couldn’t eat them at all. My husband and son had no problems at all and ate everything. As I said had these loads of times before and have always enjoyed them

Our server Jack was a Gem think the other 2 servers need to pay more attention. Food was amazing and the house grog is to die for. Best burger I’ve ever had out and the buffalo wings absolutely mouth watering
