Where do Caledonian Road locals go?

The Sampler

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

Mem & Laz Brasserie

An Islington institution, this Mediterranean restaurant is amazing value!


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!


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!

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.

New Culture Revolution

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

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.

The Lord Stanley

Just off Camden Road, this pub does the best sausage and mash!

The Canonbury Tavern

A public house since the early 1700's, The Canonbury Tavern was refurbished in 2009 giving the residents of Islington one of the best pub gardens in the city and a superb roast lunch on a Sunday. Moreover, the beautiful garden offers an escape from chaotic city life.

The Wilmington

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


A BrewDog pub just off Camden High Street serving craft beers.

Exmouth Market

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


A great burrito place that usually gives out tasters every day.

The Blues Kitchen

This American themed restaurant is fantastic! Not only is the food very tasty, but the atmosphere is electric - live music on a Friday and Saturday and distinctive tasting cocktails draw in a big crowd.
