The Regent is a cute pub in Islington popular with the locals. As well as lot of activity including live sport on TV, pub quiz, comedy nights and much more, thy also have a hidden gem which is their food. They offer authentic stonebaked pizzas with an array of toppings. For me, this is the only way to make good pizza.
So, plonk yourself outside on the couple of tables on a residential street or grab a miss-wooden chair inside and place your drinks order. A good selection of beers including Camden, Hammerton Brewery and gluten free lager. If alcoholic grapes are your tipple, they have a good selection of wines too.
On our visit, we were greeted by a medium filled room, it was early on in the week and the last few days before pay day, so it was understood. It was not our intention to have a drink, in fact it was supposed to be a quicky then home. Famous last words of course. It turned into a bottle and glass of wine and of course, the need for some carb goodness.
OMG the pizza’s are lush. I ordered the spicy salami, aubergine and chopped basic pizza. My mate had the spicy soft Italian sausage with gorgonzola, fresh parsley. Roles were definitely reversed as I normally like it spicy with blue cheese! We shared slices anyway, so thumbs up. I wish this was my local pub, i suspect i would be in here all of the time. The pizza’s are so good and the vibe is so chilled.
