We have been coming to your establishment since it was renovated, probably 18 years and never experienced a night like we had on Friday night. One of our party arrived early and as soon as he sat down, within one minute he was pestered to choosing his meal, even though you were aware there would be four of us. This was before being offered a drink. When the other 3 arrived this was a constant theme of the night. Every one to two minutes pestered to order our meal. Surprisingly, it was the quietest member of our group that complained and asked if we could order and have it 30 minutes later. A flat no. I am not sure what was going in your place on Friday night but by the look on the other customers faces, this was being repeated throughout the bar area. We have been trying to support local businesses and have spent between £130-£160 per visit to your establishment since lockdown 1. The treatment on this night was truly shocking and we are not sure we will be returning. Sad but true. I have no idea what was going on behind the scenes but when your staff start opening talking about your customers and not hiding it, other customers overhear. Your staff need to know, just because we don’t sit with the ones we know, does not mean we don’t know them. Over this whole pandemic period, we have never came across an establishment treating their customers as if they were an inconvenience. In fact, we were at another establishment on Saturday night with a different attitude. This was much more an enjoyable night and these are the places that deserve our custom. Sadly, I never thought I would write a bad review of your place in Highbury Barn. You need to remember, you cannot just rely on the football crowd anymore. If you continue with this attitude to your customers, you will start to lose them, slowly but surely as you have with us.

Only real negative was it was bloody freezing, (indoors) on both our Saturday day booking and Tuesday evening booking, even with the open fire on! Turn the heat up!

We have been regular visitors to the Barn for years and still enjoy drinking here. We don't feel the adaptations have spoilt our enjoyment!

With Islington in Level 2 lockdown, for a work dinner with two colleagues we needed to book a table outside. The Barn gave us a lovely outdoor table, and the staff gave us attentive table service. The pies are the best in town... we had fun!

We sat outside and usually at the min because of the table service rules if you sit outside you get forgotten about but here we were really looked after and didn’t have to wait long for anything :)

We have visited Highbury Barn Tavern many times, both by ourselves and with family or friends. The food is always delicious, the atmosphere always great and the service spot on. None of these aspects have dropped since we have been dealing with the pandemic. Thanks!

Considering the new Tier 2 rules came into place that day, staff were very helpful and accommodating and made it an easy experience, with great service in the outside area.

The kitchen closes at 7, which we weren’t actually told. We went to order a dessert at 7.03, and were told that we couldn’t. Other than that, the roast we had was absolutely delicious and felt very safe with COVID. Just need more communication on kitchen times.
