ISLINGTON NORTH ROAD (South side) No 46, The Lamb Tavern Public House

(Formerly listed as The Lamb Tavern Public House, NORTH ROAD, previously listed as: NORTH ROAD The Lamb Public House)

29/09/72 GV II Public house.1855. By James Bunstone Bunning for the Corporation of the City of London. Yellow brick set in English bond, Portland stone dressings, roof of slate.

Four storeys over basement, four windows to North Road, five to Shearling Way, these being the principal facades. Rusticated stone quoins to corners; stone plinth, now painted. Two flat-arched entrances in North Road, that to the west now blocked, two in Shearling Way, that to the north now blocked, (there was originally only one entrance, in the centre of the Shearling Way front); flat- arched windows to ground floor flanked by slim engaged columns, the windows to Shearling Way forming, with the entrances, a continuous range across the whole front; fascia. The first floor windows are round-arched with architrave, cornice on consoles and panelled spandrels, those to Shearling Way being one pane deeper than those in North Road, probably in relation to a balcony now missing; sill band to second-floor windows which are similarly detailed but with segmental pediments instead of cornices; third-floor windows round-arched with bracketed sills, panelled spandrels and plain stepped pilasters running up into the plain frieze; dentil cornice; all windows have sashes of original design; two hipped roofs running north-south with panelled and corniced stacks, one to each ridge and two end stacks to south; single storey, two-bay, range to south.

The interior retains a C19 bar-front, panelled and with console brackets to the bar top, and fragments of original decoration in the form of a frieze on two sides of the bar in North Road, console brackets and a cast-iron column with foliage capital to bars in Shearling Way, and relief-moulded ceilings.
