Nag's Head is a locality within the Holloway area of the London Borough of Islington.

History

Toponymy

The area is named after the Nag's Head public house. The pub, also previously called the Mustang Diner and O'Neills, closed in 2004; the original early Victorian building is in use today as a gambling establishment.

Geography

The name refers to the junction of Holloway Road (the A1) with Seven Sisters Road, where the Nag's Head pub stood, and also to the surrounding area, particularly the stretch of Holloway Road between the former pub and its junction with Camden Road.
