Nag's Head, London

Nag's Head, London

Nag's Head, Holloway is a locality within the Holloway district in the London Borough of Islington. It was originally named after the Nag's Head public house on the Holloway Road (the A1). The pub was once renamed the "Mustang Diner". It changed to "O'Neills" when it was bought by a pub chain of that name and closed in early 2004. It now functions as a small casino. However, the name Nag's Head is given to the main shopping, business and entertainment area of Holloway Road, between the junctions of Seven Sisters Road/Parkhurst Road and Tollington Road/Camden Road. It also includes the Nag's Head Market (behind Holloway Road on the northwest corner of Hertslet Road) and the Nag's Head Shopping Centre.[1] The area is identified in the London Plan as one of 35 major centres in Greater London.[2]

Nag's Head is also a common reference to the junctions of the A1 and the A503, the latter being formed of two one-way streets. The pub was close to this junction.
