The Islington Townhouse Opens

Hippo Inns was born when the founder’s (Rupert Clevely) daughters told their dad that he had been wallowing for too long. Rupert Clevely and his wife Jo, had owned Geronimo Inns before selling it back in 2010 to Young’s. Now Hippo Inns restore former pubs and inject them with new life and their latest venture Islington Townhouse will open in the iconic Chapel Market in Angel. 

The light and spacious pub is set over three floors with areas including an open bar, 42 cover dining area and secret snug. The interior will be traditional with a dusting of contemporary twist. For every wooden beer pump there’s a life-size mannequin and sit in a wingback chair looking across at modern artwork.

The same goes for the diverse food menu, which features a selection of small plates including a twice-baked Gruyère soufflé, octopus carpaccio, monkfish kebab, 35-day aged steak tartare and burnt sugarplums with marshmallow crumble. And then there’s the vast drinks list. As well as the long list of craft beers, there will also be a comprehensive wine list and a cocktail menu which boasts old favourites and new creations.

It’s pertinent the Hippo Inns name is sparked from family, as the brand aims to make their establishments a home from home within the neighbourhood. And they succeed, through traditional reassurance and contemporary comfort. Intrigue and expectation; managed.

The Islington Townhouse will open on Monday 17th October.
