Mem & Laz Brasserie

An Islington institution, this Mediterranean restaurant is amazing value!

New Culture Revolution

Off the beaten track. Amazing dim sum and very good value for money.

The Camden Head

A fantastic boozer in the heart of Camden Passage. Sit out in the beer garden watching the locals mooching around the market stalls.


Great wine, superb food and awesome al fresco dining in their garden during the warmer months.

Camden Passage

Vintage and antiques shops, Camden Passage oozes character and quirkiness with great places to have a coffee or dine. Oh so pretty and quaint!

69 Colebrooke Row

One of London's best kept secrets. The size of a small living room, but serving the best experimental cocktails around. The bar uses spirits and drinks that it infuses itself in a drinks laboratory and the staff wear lab coats.

Exmouth Market

Amazing fresh food for all tastes. Charming, especially at night. A great place to relax in the sun.


Not great if you're on a budget. However, if you want to push the boat out and want tasty Turkish-inspired food, you're in luck!

Bourne and Hollingsworth

You may have to book really far in advance, but the brunch with bottomless cocktails is definitely worth the wait! Make sure you try the French toast with clotted cream, berries and honey...

The Wilmington

Just down the road from Sadler's Wells Theatre, this exceptional gastro pub is packed before a show - and rightly so.

The Sampler

The best place to quaff on the finest wines around without having to buy a bottle! Very highbrow.

Sushi Tetsu

Sushi Tetsu is a fantastic and very personable sushi restaurant tucked down a small passageway in Clerkenwell. It serves some of the best sushi in London.

The Dovetail

Serving the finest Belgian beer in London!

The Modern Pantry

Great brunch/lunch spot and really fresh food. Worth booking as people come especially to Clerkenwell to eat here.

The Slaughtered Lamb

Great atmosphere, live bands, excellent wine! Sometimes you see the cast of Eastenders and Ed Sheeran in here.
