As a big Hitchcock fan I love this pub purely for the decor alone. If I lived nearby I'd be in here all the time but unfortunately it's bit of a trek if you don't live in the area (a good 20 minute walk from Angel if you can't get to Essex Road easily). I hope it manages to stay... More

We went here for Saturday lunch with friends and a dog. The dog was warmly greeted. Pizza, chicken salad, bangers and mash were all good. The boys played table tennis outside so I could talk to my friend, and the dog blagged a free sausage. Bob Marley was a slightly strange soundtrack to the Hitchcock theme. The only drawback I...

A group of us visited North by NorthWest for Sunday Roasts! The food was served promptly, nicely presented, tasted fresh/flavoursome and seemed of a good quality. Although the meat portion size was good and there were a good number of roast potato's I personally would have liked a larger portion of other vegetables. The atmosphere was relaxed and we were...

Hitchcock enthusiasts need look no further than this tastefully decorated pub on an otherwise unremarkable stretch of road in Islington, near the site of former studios used by the maestro. Photographs, film posters, and artefacts from Hitchcock films prevail. The Sunday roast is not bad either, alongside a good selection on the mains menu. It is also dog friendly! Well... More

Lovely unique ambience, good beers and really friendly & helpful staff. I had an issue with my food when it first came out and the barman (Warren) couldn't have been politer or more willing to help, and got me a new burger sorted in a jiffy and I really appreciated his great attitude. Only bit of constructive feedback I'd give... More

I recently visited the North by Northwest and had a great experience! The food was delicious and reasonably priced and the service was quick and efficient. In particular Andy, the guy behind the bar, was friendly and helpful and there was a great atmosphere in the beer garden without it being too loud or overcrowded. Will definitely be going here...

Having worked right near this pub for 6 years I have seen it through highs and lows in management and I am sad to say it's seen better days. 6 of us came for lunch and were immediately surprised by the massive menu and dramatic range of prices (sandwich for £5 or salad for £14.50).

We have made this our regular local since its re-incarnation. It is now a themed pub in honour of Alfred Hitchcock whose Gainsborough Studio is just down the road. There is a life size waxwork of Hitchcock behind the bar and bird models all around the seating areas. Posters from Hitchcock's movies adorn the walls. Screens show Hitchcock movies with... More
