Ian Mapp left this review about The Charles Lamb

Traditional corner pub in very nice residential area just down from the mayhem of angel, towards the Regents Canal.

Central bar, surrounded by high bar stools. Traditional furniture setup discreetly for dining.

Beer was an below average XT 4 from XT brewing.

Originally The Prince Albert, this is an early Victorian corner pub (1839) renamed by the new owners in 2005 in honour of Charles Lamb, the 18th/19th century English essayist who lived in nearby Colebrooke Row and who gave his name to this street, 'Elia' being his pen name when contributing to The London Magazine; green banded leaded lights are a clear indication that this was once a Charrington's house.
Off the beaten track, this place is very popular with the more moneyed Islingtonians, rather than the hipsters who infest The Earl of Essex across the way. Well described below, this is really quite cramped and is big on food - the pub is listed in Les Routiers guide. There seems to be a rotating policy with regard to the four ales on offer so naming them wouldn't serve a great purpose, but they are of the better variety (no GK IPA and the like) and are all well kept but are at the pricier end of the scale; this isn't a cheap area.
The added bonus is the new landlord from South Carolina who was an excellent and engaging host; this is a must-visit if in the area.

Tucked away on a side street the pub has quite a characterful exterior/interior. The L shaped main bar area serves 4 real ales with a room at the side that looks more foodie.
