About the Pub

Note July 2019 - The Islington Sports Bar and Grill is closed while it installs soundproofing to bring it in line with council requirements. It was granted a potential life-saving alcohol licence. Diehard Gooner Mick Doherty, who part-owns the Grill, had been told he needed to apply for a pub licence – the one he held meant food had to be served with alcohol.

Previously reported as a restaurant (2016), confirmed in Dec 18 as now open again after a closure, reverting to a pub, called ISLINGTON SPORTS BAR, selling real ale but Sharps Doom Bar and Atlantic unavailable on a visit due to an Arsenal home match the day before, being very close to the Emirates.

A pub that has been through a number of changes since the 1990s, from the Prince of Wales, to a Hobgoblin, the Study, and then the Herbert Chapman before being renamed again in 2013 as Filthy's. Run by the small Hathor Inns pubco, who had other Filthy's pubs in Belfast and Nottingham.
