Team behind London-based burger concept Four Legs to open pub in Finsbury Park

June 28, 2021

The team behind London-based burger concept, Four Legs, are set to open a pub in Finsbury Park.

Founders Jamie Allan and Ed McIlroy have spent the past two years serving their dishes at The Compton Arms in Islington. Now they are planning to set up home at the former the Auld Triangle pub in St Thomas’ Road to showcase “a much wider repertoire of food”.

The pub will relaunch under its former name of The Plimsoll.

Allan and McIlroy said although the building is a “proper pub and we intend to leave it that way”, they do want to make some changes. To help fund the transformation, they will be launching a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter, which, among other things, will create space the kitchen team can use for curing meat, making cheese and brewing beer.

Paul Tallentyre of Davis Coffer Lyons advised the private landlord who granted a new lease at £50,000 pa.
