Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Plaquemine Lock

Seafood / Louisiana themed gastro-pub, close to Angel underground but in a quiet side street near the Regent's Canal. Being on a corner, it's no surprise to find a 'L'-shaped layout but a small dining room is retained at one end. Semi-modern furniture, but much of the seating is on a jumbled 'sort it out for yourselves' selection of high stools. Hammerton No 1 (£4.50) available from one of the pair of handpumps.

Modern gastro pub with a good vibe going on. It is of course as described below with the same two cask beers on as encountered by Mr Fastard below, the Three Sods beer was good, as was the Gumbo.It was very busy Sunday afternoon,in contrast to the Charles Lamb around the corner, that was strangely empty, as mentioned not a boozer but I quite liked it and spent a good hour here.

An unusual pub,very well described by Tris.There seems a split personality here,with a yellow theme to the left with a mural in watercolours on a rear wall,while around the bar and to the right retains a lot of pre war details ,especially the descrete snug on the far right side with a circular table.Food is a main draw here,Southern States style think gumbo and po'boys sandwiches and there is a sign saying that you may have to relinquish your seat for those dining when it's busy.There is a drinking shelf opposite the bar with yellow covered padded stools and this area allows the only views of the Regents Canal which passes by in a cutting before diving into Islington Tunnel.
There is a decent selection of 8 craft kegs,featuring some hipsterish brewers such as Four Pure and Belleville while two handpumps were drawing Three Sods Mon Cheri IPA and Hammerton N1 (decent).Two of the serving team are french ,customer service is like being in a Parisian restaurant so expect a margin of indifference.
Live jazz some Sundays,the vibe is laid back and although it's not a boozer,you can just pitch up for a pint.I may well return to try the food,there were some good smells wafting around.
