The JunctionA few seconds from the Highbury and Islington rail and tube stops, The Junction is a favourite bar-restaurant of North London locals, blending convenience with quality. A warm welcome awaits every guest to The Junction, the staff keenly creating a comfortable atmosphere where you'll feel right at home whether popping in for a cheeky lunchtime pint, spending hours chilling out with friends or treating yourself to a spot of dinner and cocktails. The Junction's interior is unpretentious and clean, with sturdy wooden furniture and earthy colour-scheme and a selection of seating from laid back settees to more formal chairs and tables. At the bar you'll be faced with a quandary - do you indulge in one of The Junction's classic cocktails, sample the worldwide beers or choose from the range of affordable wines. Equally extensive is the food menu, which includes a host of stone baked pizzas, delicious burgers and lighter salads, sharing platters, nibbles and wraps.
