Located on bustling Upper Street in Angel, Lounge at the John Salt is the home of laid-back daytime vibes, then when the sun goes down it’s time for a bespoke cocktail and beats!

Expect to find the bar team pouring pints of Two Tribes PowerPlant and shaking up cocktails. You’ll find delicious brunch dishes, the juiciest burgers and bottomless Metroland wings flying out from the Burger Shack kitchen everyday.

Looking for the perfect spot to catch all the Six Nations action? Look no further! With plenty of scrumptious food and drinks packages, there’s no better place to soak up the rugby atmosphere.

Reges and the team look forward to welcoming you soon.


This January we’ll be rewarding our Young’s On Tap customers with £10 off when you spend £30 dining with us.

From our juicy burgers and classic fish and chips, to warming winter soups, pies and stunning seasonal vegetables… There’s no better way to banish the winter blues than a fantastic meal at the pub!


Looking to host a party? Whether it’s a birthday, engagement, Lounge at the John Salt is the place to celebrate in Islington.

Magic Burgers

I have walked past this pub for years and decided to grab a bite today – everything from the way we were received to the music was impeccable. The host recommended some burgers off the menu and boy was it magic! I’ll be back!


Mid-week cocktail

Wonderful atmosphere and staff. I visited last week for a mid week cocktail (it was happy hour so how could I resist). I tried a Negroni on recommendation and it was great! Definitely worth popping in when you are in the area! I will be back.


Lively and Vibrant

Very lively and alternative pub split in two levels. Good selection of beers and spirits. I found the environment very vibrant and pleasant. The night I went there was a live DJ who played awesome music.


Great staff

Great staff and good cocktails. Place was lively and felt very welcome. Tried a couple of experimental cocktails here and they were all delicious!
