Tris C left this review about The Lady Mildmay

Situated in leafy Newington Green on the Islington and Hackney border, this is a very high ceilinged mid-Victorian pub - currently named after another Lady Mildmay in the locality which closed around 20 years ago - originally called The Clarendon Hotel then Palms and Liszt, next The Nobody Inn thereafter back to The Clarendon before being named The Dissenting Academy prior to gaining its current name last year.
The interior is L-shaped with a central bar, white walls and dark brown lacquered wood with t 'n' g panelling to around shoulder height and matching brown ceiling with some attractive cornicing and one ornate ceiling rose. The floor is bare boarded and the overall impression is one of being very stripped out - though not industrial - and devoid of décor; there's an open kitchen, all ensuring that acoustics are very poor and none too comfy; a bit soulless. Furniture is generally of the old school style with some Chesterfields to the rear and an upright piano being the only concession to music and there are two unused fireplaces, one attractive and metal and one very beautiful and marble. Customers are solidly middle-class and generally young; some couples dined with babies, the food being more gastro than most with a menu influenced by food from countries such as France, Italy and Spain.
Ales: a milk stout, three pumps not clocked and Meridian Pale Ale at £2.00 a half and utterly bland.
In the main this is a nice pub but could benefit from some décor (not least to soak up the noise) and a more beefy ale. Combined with The Cellars and The Alma, this makes for a nice trio to visit.

A nice pub with maybe a slight nod toward the gastro.The wooden floor ,white walls and burgundy ceiling and window frames give a modern feel yet manages to maintain its pubbiness.
There were three beers on,Twickenham Naked Ladies,Sambrook's Junction and Stod Fold Blonde.
I tried the Twickenham beer which turned out to be hazy and not tasting to good,it was changed with good grace and an apology,the clip was immediately turned around which is always good to see, my replacement in the Stod Fold was excellent.Its a pleasant pub.
