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 Tank Fresh 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 £10 lunch deal is available weekdays until 3pm.
We’re also very dog friendly.
Close to the O2 Academy Islington, The Garage, Islington Assembly Hall, Angel Shopping centre and Arsenal Emirates Stadium.

Food was good, meat dishes here are gorgeous - vegetarian is nice but could be better. Really nice vibe, would go back for the fantastic hippie fries

Fantastic food. Service not good. Had to wait ages for someone to take our order, then 3 people came all at once! After our food was brought to us, we didn’t see anyone at all - had to walk around to find someone to order more drinks. Burgers were delicious.

Disappointing I’m afraid... food nothing special and we had to send coleslaw back as it had clearly been sitting round for quite a while. Thanks to the server who took it off the bill when we showed him how bad it was. To be honest we should have sent the lot back but was a date night so pretty embarrassing.. won’t be back I’m afraid.

Sides served cold and not replaced until burgers finished. Pickles in burger ordered without. No staff took responsibility for our order and were difficult to catch even though restaurant was half empty

We have been to kings cross and also upper street. The food is great at both and the waiters really helpful and friendly. The £10 lunch is an excellent deal

The menu should state when the budget comes with American cheese ( which actually isn’t really cheese). It ruined my burger. Was absolutely revolting with that orange imitation cheese.

Although I absolutely love it, the lack of meal deals mean it’s quite costly.

Tasty tasty food, and service decent as ever. I'd add the buffalo sauce to anything (except perhaps the drinks).

Brilliant service - very kind staff, the food was delicious - cooked perfectly and we didn't have to wait long. Loved the little touches of the photo booth and will definitely be returning and recommending to everyone.
