Metro Storage has been open at its self-storage store in Islington, North London, since the beginning of 2016. During this time, we’ve been keen to learn more about the area and become part of the community. One of the things the Metro Team loves to do is enjoy a good meal, so we thought we’d share our ‘Top 10 Restaurants in Islington’ with you all.
