The Angel

Picture source: T C


The Angel was situated at 1 Islington High Street. A former coaching inn, it became a Lyons corner house and is currently a Coop bank. This pub should not be confused with the Angel next door at no. 3 Islington High Street, which is a modern conversion. The Angel was purchased in 1921 by Lyons of Corner House fame and opened in 1922 as the Angel Café Restaurant. In the early 1960s it was acquired by the London County Council. Today it is a branch of the Co-operative Bank but this pub's fame lives on as it gave its name to the underground station (opposite) and the area, which features on the UK Monopoly board.
