The Canonbury TavernHaving been a public house since the early 1700s, The Canonbury Tavern has a rich history, with George Orwell, who lived in Canonbury Square, writing part of 1984 while sitting under the tree in the garden in the 1940s. The Islington pub was demolished and rebuilt in 1846 and in the early 20th century the top floor was removed due to a fire and never replaced, meaning the intriguing staircase leads to nowhere. Today, having escaped being turned into residential accommodation, the pub serves modern British food and boasts a great beer garden.
