Jimi Famurewa reviews The Shoap by Auld Hag

Right from the start, there’s a gentle subversiveness. Set south of Angel Tube station, The Shoap is a faintly industrial, whitewashed fiefdom comprising shelves and fridges heaving with Irn-Bru, Lorne square sausage, Gordon and Durward tablet and more. There’s a handful of dine-in tables, massed Tennent’s kegs, indie drifting from the speakers, and a central counter dominated by whatever baked goods haven’t been claimed by increasingly rabid morning crowds (the house-baked breakfast rolls are basically a Nessie-level myth unless you arrive before 10am). The vibe, if I had to isolate it, is of an incongruously hip airport concession.
